  • Enhance VHS quality

    Hi !

    Is there some programme which will help to improve the VHS picture,to get a better quality ?? For video editing Im using Premier 6.5
    And if exists such a programme it helps just with old VHS tapes or with any ??

    Thanks !

    Define "enhance". Is there too much noise? Are the colors off? Are you trying to up-rez SD to HD?

      to get super clean VHS to digital format, see if you can get a TBC with Y and C NR

      I use the Sony SVO5800 VHS/S-VHS player/recorder which has a built in TBC with superb NR

      see if you can find one on ebay (or SVO5600 is player only and cheaper)

          in that case you need a standalone TBC

          search for used For-A FA330 TBC

          it has component, S-Video and composite out and built in NR

          have you got a capture card that can capture from component or S-Video or composite

          component is best
          S-Video is 2nd best
          composite is worst but far better than no TBC

          there is no software to correct badly captured footage, a TBC can let you capture correct in the first place

              Also check out NeatVideo, it seems to do a good job cleaning up noisy video.

                  I second Neat Video. You don't need the Pro version if you aren't going to be processing any high definion video so it's not really that expensive, specially compared to the alternative of buying a prosumer VCR + TBC.

                  If you want free then you may want to try out the AVISynth plugin called FFT3DFilter.

                    ADVC 300 Versus Video Enhancing Programs

                    THoff, thanks for recommending NeatVideo. Recently, I purchased the ADVC 110 for capturing VHS tapes as DV using iMovie. I am now wondering whether I should have purchased the ADVC 300 (instead of the ADVC 110) because of its "clean, enhance and stabilize old analog video" feature. OR, can I do the same thing with software. (I don't mind the extra step; in fact, I'd like to see "before" and "after", without having to play the source tape more than once.)

                    The DV Show Podcast for October 6, 2008 recommended software that will enhance video such as VirtualDub and Video Enhancer. So are you saying such software, including NeatVideo, can accomplish the same thing as the ADVC 300, with video captured by the ADVC 110?

                      Short of professional equipment with Time Code Base, your best option is using a Digital 8 camcorder - it will play back analog 8 video - and capture via firewire.

                      Adobe After Effects has a very good grain remover filter; if you need to stay in the "free" teritory, try Googling around - there is an excellent article about using very good free filters in (the also free) VirtualDub.
