Filters can improve the picture quality. But so can a TBC. A combination of both can turn an older VHS tape into something worth watching again.
Read the glossary entry for TBC.

Or u can run it through vdub againg using filters then encode the resuting file into an mpeg. But thats an extra sted and more time, itrs well worth the trouble if u don't know how to frameserve to take the time and learn its really not that hard.

Here is a sample AviSynth script I use with my PICVideo MJPEG captures done at 352x480
LoadPlugin("C:\PROGRA~1\GORDIA~1\mpeg2dec3.dll") LoadPlugin("convolution3d.dll") AviSource("D:\capture.avi") Trim(2250,17535) crop(6,2,-2,-6) AddBorders(4,4,4,4) SeparateFields() even = SelectEven(last).Convolution3D (0, 6, 10, 6, 8, 2.8, 0) odd = SelectOdd(last).Convolution3D (0, 6, 10, 6, 8, 2.8, 0) Interleave(even, odd) weave() AssumeFPS(29.970, true)
The SeparateFields and Weave and all that is because it is interlaced footage and has to do with the way Convolution3D works. Not all filters need that kind of application for interlaced video but most probably do.
Anyways ... Not as hard as it looks
