    And, here we are:



    Be sure to watch it in 1080p60 for best quality.

    Not too bad--better than I though it'd be. I see that Martin lost his scruffy beard for this video.

    Anyone catch the Miniscribe hard drive in the video? This would be after the "brick in a box" disaster.

    Decent video. What did you use for playback, capture, and processing?

    My process for VHS-quality sources:

    1. Dazzle DVC 100 (consumer device but that's ok for a mass-produced VHS cassette), outputs 4:2:2 YUV which was maintained throughout the pipeline.
    2. Premiere Pro for black level correction and color correction of one specific segment that had royally messed-up hue.
    3. Izotope 5 for audio noise reduction.
    4. NeatVideo 4 for video noise reduction.


    All of the above in the interlaced domain. Final export from Premiere was then deinterlaced with avisynth using this script:

    Code:
    avisource("csc inside disk drives.avi").ConvertToYUY2().assumeTFF()
    QTGMC(Preset="very slow", EdiThreads=4)
    crop(8,8,-8,-8)
    nnedi3_rpow2(rfactor=2,cshift="spline36resize",fwidth=1440,fheight=1080)
    Encoded with ffmpeg using x264 --preset medium. (There's no point in --preset veryslow with content that only originally had ~220 lines of resolution. Also, I've stopped adding pillarboxing now that YouTube and archive.org can process 60p 4:3 content correctly.)

    Drawbacks of the entire process: Telecined (film) content can get some extra motion added to it. Also takes about an hour of manual labor, and about 5x video runtime for the deinterlacing avisynth script. (Can't run the script multithreaded, it crashes, must run single-threaded.)

    For umatic or laserdisc, I use a capture device capable of 10-bit YUV. Also, everything goes through a TBC except laserdisc.

    Needless to say, if you want to send me computing-history-related VHS, I'll convert them for you.

    That video needs more Video Toaster transitions and MOD music.

    I have a USB Dazzle here somewhere I never used. What VCR did you use for playback?

    JVC SR-VS30, which has a TBC built-in. For umatic, I have a standalone broadcast TBC.

    That is so gloriously terrible that of course I'd love to convert that properly if the tape surfaced.
