In the Effects tab under Image Control, Final Cut Pro comes with a few canned filters that you can tweak in order to get an aged film look such as: Sepia, Tint, Desaturate, and Gamma Correction.

You can apply filters within Final Cut Pro simply by going to the Effects tab in the main menu then to Video Effects and dragging the filter name from the list onto the clip in the timeline or in the viewer. You could also select the clip first in the timeline or viewer, then choose the filter.

After applying a filter you can look to the timeline ruler area to see the applied filter can be played back in real time or not. An orange bar in the timeline ruler area signifies that you can play back the applied filter in real time but may experience dropped frames and a red bar means that you will have to render the applied filter effect in order to view it in real time. Learn how to take your effects to the next level in an Adobe After Effects class.
