Import all of your vintage videos into Wondershare Filmora Project and choose a song that will go well for your project. Go to Audio menu and select “So Clear”. You can choose any and you should know the lyrics for the song.


Drag the song onto your timeline. Listen to the song once and decide the order of your videos. Right before it starts signing, make a cut and delete the rest. Go to Stock Media menu and look for some clips for the beginning of the song.


Type in “City” and before the artist starts singing, put a city clip and match the duration. Listen to the song and position of the rest of your videos according to the lyrics. Make sure all of your videos have the same aspect ratio.


Simple double-click and go to Basic>Transform and scale in the video as required. Cut the video and song where you want to end and delete the rest. If you want to end in the middle, make sure you fade the song out.


Go to Effects menu and scroll down to LUT section. We will go with Vintage X-Process and place it onto a separate track at the top of the timeline. Go ahead and add Beautiful Memories to the top of the timeline.


Type in ”grain” and add Film Grain effect to the top of the timeline. Double-click on it and adjust how much grain we get from this effect. We need to make our video look a little more glowy and as if taken with a film camera.


Select all effects and bring them one track up on the timeline. Copy all the videos and use Ctrl + C and Ctrl + V and put the videos on top empty track. Add Square Blur effect on the first duplicate video.


Double-click and go to Effect and increase the blur to 3. Go to Basic section and under Compositing, change the Blending Mode from Normal to Lighten. Lower the opacity if you want. This will add glow to our footage.


Select the video with the blur effect and press Ctrl + Alt + C to copy the effect. Click on the next video and press Ctrl + Alt + V to paste the effect. Do it for the rest of the duplicate videos.


For the videos where there is a human subject, we can go ahead and work with the opacity. You may need to increase it as per the light difference. Go into each video and work with the opacity for the result we are looking for.


Go to Effects menu and come down to Overlay and then to Light Leak. Choose Travel Chic-Overlay 1 and put it on the timeline. Let us go ahead and put our lyrics. Head over to Titles> Subtitles> Subtitle 7.


Grab Subtitle 7 and drag it to the beginning of the timeline. Listen to the song and find the areas where the lyrics begin. Copy the lyrics from the internet and paste into the title element.


Mark the first line on the timeline. Copy the first line from the internet and then match the subtitle with the markers and double-click on it to paste the lyrics. Go to Animation section and select Type Writer effect.


You can slow down the text animation from Advanced section. You can also go to Customize section and add text shadow and add other effects for a vintage look. Repeat the same for the rest of the lyrics and song.
