Cleaning up old video

Post by Oblioman » Mon Sep 20, 2010 9:08 pm

Not sure if me found the right place,,but have me a dilemna. We have been transferring 8mm and Super 8 film to digital and doing it the old fashioned way. Shooting on a white screen and capturing with Canon HFS20. The projector we were using worked great (variable speed) and the results were better than me expected with zero film flicker (edited in premiere). Well, to make a long story short, me good variable speed projector went south so me had to turn to the backup projector - non-variable speed. So the results have the old film flicker. After a bit of research,,,me read that VirtualDub or a filter for VD will work to remove the flicker. Just wondering if anybody has some insight on this matter. Thank You!

This kind of question should always be accompanied by an unprocessed source sample. Are you able to provide one for inspection?

me camera saves the files as .MTS (Canon Vixia HF S20) which apparently Virtual Dub does not natively support (me thinks). In order to supply a sample should one convert to .avi?

Don't convert it to AVI. Use DGSplit to cut a piece of the .MTS file. Then upload that to mediafire.com and post the link here.

found the deflicker filter and it be exactly what we have been looking for. here's the problem,,running 64bit version of VirtualDub (nice program) and when me tries to import the filter - Deflick.vdf this error pops up - Cannot load plugin module "C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Desktop\virtualdub\Deflick.vdf": %1 is not a valid Win32 application.

Would it be that the filter is only for 32 bit versions of Vdub???

That's right. It's a 32-bit filter. The source code is there so you can recompile it for 64-bit.
