Hi,
I captured some videos, some have a black left and right frame. I notice that some lines on the bottom are not well aligned.

First should be a white screenshot but it isn't:

The second is similar but coloured:

How to remove them (Pinnacle 14 or VirtualDub)?

Thank you

SMPTE side borders and bottom-border head-switching noise are present on all VHS tapes. They aren't "errors".

Forget Pinnacle. It's horrible software.

matter of taste... making those "borders" disapear would mean you're going to enlarge the orginal picture so it will fit to "full screen" which in general would be a bad thing, because the resolution will get worse, or your "taste" would not mind that.
so keeping a neat black border won't degrade the picture quality, personaly i don't mind the fringed borders, it's VHS... if you can make a good capture of how the tape looks you can at least play it more often than you would play the VHS with a VCR, a lot of the bad quality you did not see on a CRT tv in those days, your capture will look as good on a CRT tv as the tape does on a CRT tv, that's my personal view on this, i'm sure others won't agree with me but i don't get frustrated about it.

The bigger issues are:
- cropping on interlace (never do this!)
- resizing quality, which can offset your legitimate concerns

And viewed on a TV set, you won't even see it anyway. Just the computer.

Correct, and about "offsetting legitimate concerns"... nice thing about working with Davinci Resolve, this will allways be correct, because you set this in the project settings and later you can check this again when you go to the "Deliver" tab, so you will be fine.... and this is where Handbrake screws up.
Davinci Resolve you really should try, there are lots of good tutorials on youtube.
Very useful to work on captures, and it has much more features you may need but later you can, "while you get the hang of it", (you grow to like to work with it)
btw. i guess another advantage of my setup, i never crop on interlaced, because my vcr gives a good progressive output, and i can color correct by means of my video capture device driver, so i do very little (to none) to my capture result in the end.
