Have been capturing all the families VHS tapes .... luckily most are on SVHS PAL so a little better than standard VHS.
Understand there is usually a need to improve noise & always a need to attend to Chroma noise ......... have come across a few scripts (such as example attached)
These use Cnr2
filter to correct chroma noise.
Looked at your 'Avisynth MultiScript
' (is that the latest ver 5-10-2014)
For example you use Cnr2
Cnr2("xoo",4,2,64) # remove chroma banding noise, wide UV setting
I had read in a few places that CCD_1.7
(Color Camcorder Denoise
) is better, and while asking around was given the following comment:
"Lordsmurf fome DigitalFAQ says that CCD is more effective than CNR2
Have you carried out any side by side comparison of Cnr2
? ......... be keen to have your views, and if it has better performance, any tips on what settings / how to use it.
In case it's relevant for your response .... typical workflow for my videos destined for streaming sites is:
DV capture of 720 x 576 interlaced PAL
Loaded into Vegas and rough edit to remove unwanted video
Denoise with script attached
Deinterlaced using QTMG scipt & spline resized
Use VD Stabilize with DeShaker (if required) & sharpen
Loaded back into Vegas for final edit - transition, titles, colour correction, etc.
Audio dealt with in Soundforge
Render out as 960x720p, 50
for intermediate lossless versions)
For non-streaming sites would leave out deinterlacing step, and do resize in Vegas.
