Like many others here, I'm working on transferring 15-20 year old video from VHS to DVD. I'm playing on my Sony SLV-585HF, using the pass through on my JVC GR-D93U to my computer and using WinDV for the capture. I'm editing using Premiere 6.5 and frameserving to TMPGEnc using the Debug Frame Server. Below is a frame exported from Premiere. Can someone recommend a filter in Premiere or a plug in for TMPGEnc that I can use to fix up this video? I'm not too familiar with VirtualDub, but will consider using that with a plug in and frame serving to TMPGEnc.

TMPGEnc Plus has a built-in "video noise filter" so you should start there. I would just try using the "default" settings. See how that works. It usually works well. It will slow down the encoding time but all "video noise filters" do that at some point.
Next to that you are better off using AviSynth than VirtualDub as there are a ton of "video noise filters" for AviSynth.
One of the best AviSynth "video noise filters" would be Convolution3D. Here is a guide:
Good Luck !!!

It costs some money but I totally recommend NeatVideo at www.neatvideo.com. My experience is that it beats all other filters I've tried, including several attempts at Convolution3D, the MSU Denoiser, etc. It's amazing, and there is a new "Home" edition that's cheaper. (It's still $50 though...)
It's pretty amazing - haven't seen anything as effective at removing noise and maintaining detail at the same time. You can get a very functional demo from their web site.
Downside, it's very slow.
