Classic/Retro SMPTE cue marks

This is an ultra-simple effect that places projectionist marks on your clips. There are two choices:

SMPTE-55 (before Jan. 2005) and SMPTE-301 (after Jan. 2005). (Wikipedia)

That’s it. There’s a drop down menu in the inspector to choose. They’re slightly different… Can you tell?

This video uses Cue Mark on all its clips:
