Hello all,
I would like advice about what filters and workflow I can use to cleanup this vhs footage. I used a JVC SR-V101US VCR for playback (with TBC/NR on, video stabilizer off, Digital R3 off, and picture control on 'edit'). I used the ATI 600USB for capture device. I capped with virtualdub (no filters) and saved to lagarith yuy2 .avi.

Here is the link:

Thanks. It seems like you have an impressive plugins folder. There are some plugins that I cannot get a hold of such as the agc.dll. That strony site is down. I can't load the script unless I have all of those plugins. Would it be possible to copy your plugin folder? Or at least send me a copy of the hragc zip?? Thanks again.

you don't need all of them, agc.dll is for HDRAGC which you don't need in this script

Go here, search for hdragc, and you'll find it:

I'm having trouble running the script. Virtualdub keeps crashing. Any ideas?

change de multithreading values ,i have a 4 cores (4 threads) cpu so that gives:

Code:
SetMemoryMax(900)
SetMTMode(3,4)
AVISource("E:\00-montage\SampleSgan.avi")
SetMTMode(4)
Problem is RemoveSpotsMC() don't work with 4 threads (only 2 according to my tests) so try :

Code:
SetMTMode(3,2)
AVISource("E:\00-montage\SampleSgan.avi")
SetMTMode(2)
Or no multithreading at all, only:
Code:
AVISource("E:\00-montage\SampleSgan.avi")
...but it's gonna take longer to process

By the way you'd need avisynth 2.6 MT (multithreads) etc..

Ok. I removed the multi threading. It still crashes. I'm using avisynth 2.5 so I changed the paths. Should I just install 2.6? I'd hate to lose my current plugins. Any advice?

Yes install avisynth 2.6MT if you have a multi cores cpu (most are these days) it's worth it

Take a look here and follow the instructions
http://forum.doom9.org/showthread.php?t=148782

It's also a good idea to install qtgmc (and the modded plugins) read here:

Ok. Installed avisynth 2.6 mt. I installed the qtgmc as well and followed the directions on the doom9 forum. I replaced the old dlls with the updated ones. I tried no multi threading and also the mode for 2 cores. (because thats what I have). I still crashes. I have win7 32bit. Virtualdub still crashes. Is there another way? After several hours of time, could there even be a another way to write the script? Thanks

Better yet, show them using the forum's CODE bbcode:

FYI: That was a sample, not a script. Those should be attached here to, or Dropboxed (and we can copy to CDN4).
