Getting rid of green lines
Time

Hi!
So I want to fix up a show that I enjoyed when I was younger; this was originally 23.97, sped up to 25p and is presented on YouTube this way. I think I might have some sort of script to help with the frame rate, but one thing that is apparent is these annoying green lines on the right of the image, possibly from the transfer of the Digital Betacam. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

Motion Compensated Frame Rate Conversion -- free/cheap alternative?
Time

Hi everyone,
Been a while since my last post - I took Chewtobacca’s advice on ditching the Elgato, and managed to get a Capture Card that does many frame rate options. Now that I have a few captures, i would like to hear from any of you if there is anything to do to make it look good how it was on VHS… below are examples from two different episodes, with two different targets from a NTSC VHS and a PAL VHS, which I would like to aim for.

THEODORE & THE OIL RIG:
Recorded in 50 frames per second (whole HDMI episode) - https://drive.google.com/file/d/0Bzhc7EQ2CezIcExKRE51dVZIZlE/view?usp=sharing

Target (From a USA NTSC VHS, partial clip)- https://drive.google.com/file/d/0Bzhc7EQ2CezITWp3VzBVbVB4Z0U/view?usp=sharing

THE COLD SNAP:
Recorded in 50 frames per second (whole HDMI episode) - https://drive.google.com/open?id=0Bzhc7EQ2CezIemVkM3d3bzQtN1E

Target (From a Swedish PAL VHS, Partial Clip) - https://drive.google.com/file/d/0Bzhc7EQ2CezIVGZfeXl2SGNENG8/view?usp=sharing

25p Capture (In case this is at all necessary) - https://drive.google.com/file/d/0Bzhc7EQ2CezIb0hrRnlXT281LXc/view?usp=sharing

Thank you so much in advance.

Apparently the tape is 60 frames per second. I have never seen tapes aside from the Theodore ones do this, they look absolutely gorgeous on the TV. I know JawsTDS has a few tapes, and I think he could agree with me on this haha. I’m trying to aim for .mpg files of the finished product, so I’d like to see how we might get with this. Thanks for the scripting, will update to see how that goes.

I’ve tried Androids and many other devices to see if there’s any way to just copy the raw file stored in the database, but it isn’t possible 😦 . As for your requested links, here they are:

CAPTURE OF FULL EPISODE FROM PHONE:

SMALL SNIPPET FROM VHS CAPTURE (what I’m trying to aim for, these tapes are in an amazing 60p if this helps. It’s presented here in 30 from a basic capture):

Hi there,
Thanks for getting back to me. Sorry I didn’t clarify this further- I’m obtaining these episodes off of a video streaming site in the Philippines. I’m capturing them off of my iPhone, since I can view them offline, without streaming, providing the best quality. The way I’m getting these to my PC is with an Elgato Game Capture (does only 30p, hence the problem), via an IPhone output-HDMI cable. The captures are in .mp4 from the raw file, each episode roughly 3gb each. The only other sources of (a select few) of these episodes are VHS rips. Only 35/130 have been released on Home video, over 30 not even available on the internet but here (my reasoning for preserving these). Screen capture is not an option, as the site will lag and provide jumpy quality via VPN on a desktop.

I’m assuming this would go on the same page, just because I’m having trouble with frame rates myself. I’m trying to preserve one of my favorite shows, “Theodore Tugboat”, and I managed to get them from a reliable source. However, I’m facing a few difficulties, so I’ll point out the “to-knows” in a bullet list:
-The show was filmed in 60i.
-My initial source for these is in 25p.
-The files I have are in 30p, resulting in a duplicate frame.

Is there any way to get rid of the duplicate frame, going back to 25p, and possibly restoring some lost motion by interpolating that to 60p? If there is, I’d love to know. (I am also very inexperienced with AVISynth, so if that is required, I’ll need a lift on that as well!) 😃

Here’s a clip of the untouched file (cropped in Vegas, original file size is 1280x720).
