Converting LaserDiscs to Digital Files


I’m an amateur and I’ve pretty much hit a wall. I’ve had two methods of capturing LD content: 1, Recording on DVD in HQ mode (1 hour’s worth of recording) for each disc. 2, Using the Dazzle capture via RCA to USB.

The video editing software I’ve used was Pinnacle 16 Ultimate. Every single extract I’ve made to create a file always seems result in either heavy aliasing or the footage heavily flickers after a certain point in the video. I thought it may have just been a deinterlacing problem, but another method I’ve tried such as using Handbrake to create mp4s out of the DVD-Rs and import it onto Pinnacle still results in subpar video quality.

I assume I need to switch to different software. Can anyone help in that regard?
