Re: yet another.. VHS capture to Wrkstn thread

assuming yer not interested in purchasing proc amp/TBC hardware and are lookin for software filters, yer on a Windows machine right?

Premiere is all i've ever used on a PC, and After Effects has some pretty good filters for cleaning up noise...also, Red Giant makes some excellent filters for the job

Re: yet another.. VHS capture to Wrkstn thread

Correct, I'm not investing in hardware. Windows 7 > software/name of filter would be helpful.

the capture is very good - just needs a tweak and I'm in unfamiliar territory.
surfing around I'm seeing the usual suspects: VirtualDub/TMPGenc.. (I'm really more interested in which filters to use for standard VHS cleanup)

Re: yet another.. VHS capture to Wrkstn thread

although all NLEs will have some sorta built-in filter, usually the 3rd party filters do a much more thorough job...guessin yer lookin for an NLE prog as well, as i said before all i've ever worked on really is Adobe Premiere...saltman and a lot of those guys use Sony Vegas

Red Giant's "Magic Bullet" series of filters has a Denoiser that works great...also used a program a few yrs back called DE:Noise [can't remember the company's name] that worked well...After Effects has a built-in noise reduction tool that is fairly good as well


all the above are at least semi-pro software tho, if yer lookin for cheap progs i can't tell ya from experience...but heard there was a cheap plug-in called Neat [i think] that'd do a great job considering the price...should work with any NLE i'm assuming

EDIT: called Neat Video, at $50 thats dirt cheap!
