Encoding/re-encoding lossless (Huffyuv
AVI) won't incur any extra damage for the codecs. So you're fine there. At most, it just takes more time to encode and re-encode. But sometimes that 's what you have to do.
There really is no "standard" set of filters. I'd really need to see a sample.
Recently, I've been working on my Avisynth guide: http://www.digitalfaq.com/forum/news...-avisynth.html
And then VirtualDub
guide is next.
The goal of filtering is to use as few filters as possible, and to use the least harsh settings as possible. You never want to over-process the video. So that's why there really is no "standard" set of filters.
That said, the most common issues with VHS are
- chroma noise - Camcoder Color Denoise filter (CCD 1.7)
- grain - Temporal Smoothing (no more than 3!)
- and then hiss, but audio is not really correctable in VirtualDub
; another topic!
- very mild contrast/IRE tweaks - levels (0.05 increments!)
