Thread: Very Old Videos

  1. #1

    Default Very Old Videos

    I have 50+ year old videos that I transferred from film to VHD to DVD and now to my computer. They are so bad that you can hardly tell who is who so is there anyway to make is better?

    Hopefully you still have the film.

    Transferring from film directly to DVD would be much better.

    VHS tapes degrade quite fast (a lot faster than film does) so by taking that intermediate step and then letting the VHS tape degrade over time you've lost a lot of the original quality along the way.

    If you can get the scans directly to digital files instead of going via DVD that would be even better because you'll skip the MPEG2 encode / decode steps too. Either way, I'd go back to the originals.
