Playing with Nostalgia Is The Way To Connect To Your Viewers

Just remember a time when your mind has wandered around remembering some delightful moments that have already passed... and let me ask you this - How did you feel at the time?

Nostalgic? Sentimental? Thinking if you could bring those moments to the present?

That's precisely how you want to make your viewers feel! Imagine if you're able to spark the same reaction while they're watching your video. Wouldn't it be nice?

With the resurgence of the style of the '80s and '90s, this retro-inspired video transition will definitely splash your video with nostalgia.

That being said, let's look at how you can use it.

When To Use The VHS Retro Effect For Premiere Pro

A lot of video editors ask the question: 

"When is a good time to use this glitchy and retro effect?" 

If our team had to answer it would be something like this - When the atmosphere you're trying to create calls for a bit of distortion, either visual or audio.

Or maybe, you need to replicate the found footage look or convey a dramatic recollection of a character's past. (similarly to the greatest nostalgic movies and series out there)

And the best part is - Now, you can achieve that easier than ever! All you need to do is register for 30-Days Of Free Unrestricted Access and grab the VHS Retro Effect.

This video transition replicates the old-style VHS videotape edits and was developed by meticulously studying VHS tape behavior to get the most accurate simulation of this behavior.
