    Hello,
    I have captured my old vhs concert footage to avi through huffyuv. I want to eventually burn to dvd. But first I have to clean up the video and then edit by adding subtitles, cropping, some corrections, authoring and burning. How should my workflow be keeping in mind that I don't want to encode and recode too many times. What should I be doing in virtual dub? My plan:
    1. Clean up the avi file
    2. Edit with an NLE that will save to avi with my subs included (ideas?)
    3. Take that avi and open in AVStoDVD to author and burn.
    4. Possibly prepare the file for YouTube upload. (That may be a different process)

    My vhs footage has some overscan on the bottom, needs to be brighter, color contrast improved, and a little help with the graininess. There aren't really any other issues with the capture.
    Suggestions?

    I am having trouble attaching a 30 second sample clip to show you. Maybe because it's 225mb. Any ideas?

    Not sure what the purpose of that step is ?

    What kind of "edits" are you doing in the NLE? Simple cuts ? Transitions / overlays ?

    What kind of "subs"? Did you mean hardcoding the subs ?

    Thanks. Cutting the beginning and end. Adding subs but not hard coding. No transitions.

    I'm using a JVC SR V101US as a player with the TBC and stabilizer on. My capture device is the ATI 600 USB. My virtual dub settings are to huff tub avi (yuy2, gradient median and convert to yuy2 within the huffyuv configure menu. No other filters have been applied unless vdub's default settings need to be adjusted? There is also a setting on the Jvc that has to do with filtering that I set to "auto" instead of "edit". I'm sure that's not the first recording that tape has seen.

    Yes. Thank you. I will work on this. How can I ensure it's not captured to RGB?

    I did exactly what you said and it still comes out as RGB color space because I checked on mediainfo. The resolution is better. But still RGB. What should I do??

    Thanks. You mentioned converting to RGB and then reconvert to yuy2. How is that done?

    Ok. Thanks for the info. I'm not sure how to use avi synth. I will play with the levels to see what I can get

    Do you think that a filter chain won't work then?

    I seem to have a slightly better capture with my Canopus 110 in terms of detail. Why do you think that is

    Understood. On many forums the preferred method has always been lossless but in this case I think the best results would apply.

    In other words, if I can get better detail, why not capture in DV? (I'm playing devil's advocate here)

    I understand. I No moves at all. I'm a lover, not a fighter. I'm just trying to wrap my head around the concept. So in summary, a virtual dub filter chain may be counterproductive at this point? At least that's what I gather.
