My goal is to clean noise-grain defect from video that was filmed in dark location.
I have decided to achieve that through Neat Video plugin, for Virtual Dub.
I can apply noise-cleaning filter in Virtual Dub without problems, but when it comes to save the video clip and issue arises.
I grab video clips via regular firewire using a Digital SONY DCR-340E PAL handycam, which mean clips I come with to Virtual Dub are simple DV 720 x 576 Pal clips. Unfortunately Virtual Dub doesn’t have the same DV codec to compress back my video clips to their original quality with noise cleaning filter applied. What codec could I download and install in order to have my clips compressed to their original DV quality?
Reason for doing that is the later import of those clips into my video-editing program. If those clips will be compressed with a codec other than the original DV, and I will do my video editing, than produce movie by compressing again, the result will be quite bad. It will be a double compression. I hope my question is clear: what codec should I install to keep the absolutely original quality of my DV clips after noise filtering?
Thanks anyone who can help me.
