Hi all, Iím hoping to get some help with understanding where I can go from here to make my VHS capture look better. This is for a project where Iím digitizing my collection of Japanese VHS tapes, using a JVC SR-VS30 (using the internal TBC), with optionally a ES15 if the video seems like it needs it (didnít use it on this tape), going into a ATI 600 USB capture card over s-video and then saved in HuffyUV
My goal is to have a ďgoodĒ looking final output that I can archive / share in an easily consumable format.
Iím having some trouble with the posted video (a compilation of clips from throughout the tape), for which I used the following Virtualdub
1. Deinterlace (yadif with double frame rate)
2. Crop edges
3. MSU Denoiser
4. Camcorder color denoise
5. MSU Smart Sharpen (borders only)
6. resize to 640x480
7. interpolate frame rate to 60fps
I also tried Neat Video, which cleaned up some more noise but also destroyed a lot of detail. Iím not sure where to go from here and there are still some issues that are nagging me, such as the yellow banding which the CCD filter helped with, but didnít entirely eliminate. The tape might just be too old since I tried other tapes and the banding isnít present on them.
I donít think there are issues in my capture setup, so improvements would be on the processing side. Are there other Virtualdub
filters I could try to clean things up?
The attached clips are NSFW
, my apologies if this violates a rule (I couldn't find any related to this). If it does, let me know and I can remove them. Theyíre also a little more compressed than Iíd like, to fit into the upload file size limit.
