VHS After Effects Project


I thought what the hey, lets make a free Adobe After Effects VHS emulator. This is a ready to use, no plugins, project that will turn your crisp modern video clips into the degraded VHS we all love!


NOTES: Must have AE 16.0.1 or newer, best with clips under 60 seconds

INSTRUCTIONS: Place your video clip into the comp “VIDEO CLIP HERE” -> Open the “RENDER” comp -> Trim the comp to clip length -> Add to Render Queue
