Greetings all - I searched the forums, but couldn't FIND the solution I was looking for. I would be grateful to anyone who redirects me.
I am restoring a number of different mediums. For my VHS transfers I use a JVC HR-S9911U. Whenever possible, I run VHS transfers through my Sony HVR-M25U MiniDV and record out on firewire through my PC. The below video was captured in this way, but a separate capture using a S-video Elgato resulted in the same effect.
I have a few tapes from the early 1980s, which I know where recorded using a camcorder that ran a heavy cable back to a shoulder unit assembly with a VHS machine. Presumably, some of these videos struggled with the provided power, and there were intermittent problems in signal delivery.
I have shortened this attached video to 6:30 for reference (https://drive.google.com/file/d/1IYc...ew?usp=sharing
). I have the video in an uncompressed file format also.
In the video at the 20 second mark the inside scene is overly magenta, but then corrects to a better (albeit faded) balance at the :58 mark. At 2:07 scenes in the kitchen are slightly yellow, but color is snapped back to normal outside at 3:16. At 4:45 the tint goes supremely wacky to a deep green, but then corrects back by 6:08.
I don't know how to implement some of the coding scripts for adjustment in VirtualDub
, but I already use that program a lot. I wouldn't expect an easy one-pass solution this, and am willing to chunk the video in separate parts, color correct as per separate needs, and then re-amalgamate into a finished video.
The video only has so much resolution to start with, but I greatly would like to know how I might address these more-sensitive instances to make them look better.
*Due to the size of uncompressed, .avi files, I would love to find a good compression codec to use. Unfortunately, my experience with Lagarthic has resulted in skewed hue/tint ruining the video. Any tips for lossless compression (outside of lossy mp4/mkv) would be greatly appreciated. In time I would expect to put these files into an AV1 container, but we're not there yet.
*Yes - I know there are some aspects of jigger intermittently throughout the video, but outside of my standard TBC, I'm not sure there is much to do about that.
