I have read this very useful guide at http://www.digitalfaq.com/forum/vide...-settings.html
I am capturing hi8/video 8 tapes as per details below in virtualdub
and I have some questions:
Colour space compression: YUY2
Questions for best quality:
YUY2 compression = Predict Median or Predict Left?
RGB Compression = Predict Gradient or Predict Left?
Once I have captured, and I start applying filters outside of capture mode in virtual dub etc
What should my video compression settings be for Huffyuv
– I assume the same?
Video Colour depth – what should be set for “decompression format” and “output format to compressor”?
I believe the filters only work in RGB, so should I convert to RGB if doing filter work to avoid going from YUY2 to RGB over and over again loosing quality? Can I capture in RGB to start with?
Should “smart rendering” be on or off?
