Drag and drop the filter on your clip in the Final Cut Pro X timeline. Once you have applied your color grade, select your clip in the timeline. Then, use the Filter Controls in the FCPX Inspector to adjust the threshold, contrast, color, and film grain.

Now, let’s apply some aged film effects. Scan through the dust, dirt, and scratches to find the one you like. Once you have applied your filter, use the Effect Controls to adjust the look. Next go to the titles library to find the ProSilent overlays. Scan through the border and vignette presets. Drag the one you like above your footage on the Final Cut Pro X timeline and make it the same length as the clip. Select the title layer in the timeline and then go to the FCPX Inspector. Use the Border Controls to adjust the size, color and opacity of the frame.
Step 3 - Adding a Border

Drag the one you like above your footage on the Final Cut Pro X timeline and make it the same length as the clip. Select the title layer in the timeline and then go to the FCPX Inspector.
