Hi All

Hoping to get some advice on cleaning up the attached video which I have attached a screen shot .jpg file for. As you can see, the footage has heaps of bleeding, over exposure, yellow bluriness etc.

My workflow is:

Early to mid 1980s NTSC 3.58 VHS tape (Looks like it's had a pretty hard life) ----> JVC HR-S7600AM VCR ----> HRT Hall Research Model TBC-100 (turned up sharpness) ----> BlackMagic Intensitry Pro 4K PCI-E ---- Windows 10 ---- BlackMagic Media Express -- capturing and saving at 525i59 NTSC 8-bit YUV Avi file.

I have a Elite Video Broadcast Video Processor Plus that I bought because it was mentioned in this forum as being good kit. I have tried to use it but I just make the footage look bad in other different ways as I don't really know what I am doing with all the knobs as I don't understand what composes these footage quality issues.

Just by looking at the video capture screen shot, does anyone know what settings I should adjust on the Elite Video Broadcast Video process to try and clean this footage up? I have attached a picture of the Elite Video unit so you can see the dials that can be adjusted on it.

I really need to get the capture footage on this tape improved as much as possible as it is important to me.

Thanks

Honestly, just start twisting knobs, see what happens.

That footage is really damaged, however, so I'm not sure how much the BVP4+ can improve on it. What I see is a video with destroyed mid tones, severely damaged chroma, obliterates highlights, no true darks. That's common from 8mm film footage transferred to VHS by playing it on a wall backdrop/screen, and using a VHS camera to shoot it. That's not much better than how modern movie pirates take a camera phone and shoot the theatre screen. It just looks really bad, almost not worth watching.
