  1. Hello everyone, I have an old video, seems that it used to be stored on a VHS tape, then transferred to DVD.
    Anyway, all I have now is a video file, and it looks like this:

Name:	POTO LA.jpg

    The horizontal white stripes, what do you call it (sorry)? They look really annoying and I want to remove them.
    I have:
    - VirtualDub
    - Sony Vegas Pro 8
    - Neat Video plugin for Sony Vegas

    The Neat Video plugin always crashes when I open it in Vegas.
    Could you show me how to remove those white stripes please?

    Thanks a lot!

    use mediainfo on the file. paste the text results here. most likely interlacing which can be de-interlaced during playback by the video player software. removing it would result in a lower quality video.

    I use Vegas to check the media info, and here's the result:

    Video: 02:02:23.002, 29.970 fps interlaced, 704x480x32, MPEG-2
    Audio: 02:02:23.008, 48,000 Hz, Stereo, MPEG

    ACID information

    Stretch list: no
    Stretch info2: no
    Beat markers: no
    Detected beats: no

    I think aedipuss was referring to the MediaInfo program for information. The info from Vegas is minimal, but it does appear to be interlaced video.

    Try viewing it with a player that properly displays interlaced video and see if the problem goes away. VLC with Bob deinterlacing turned on is one choice.
    Interlaced video should display properly on a TV as it handles interlaced video correctly. PC displays are normally progressive displays and do not unless you use a interlace capable player. If your final output is to be DVD, you don't want to deinterlace.

    If that doesn't fix the problem, try posting a short representative clip here.

    Thanks. I do want to put it to DVD after editing those white stripes.
    Here's a sample clip:

  6. Your sample is interlaced but that has little to do with the noise. I don't know why Vegas is crashing with Neat Video. Attached a quick example of what Neat Video can do in VirtualDub (Xvid AVI). You should be able to tweak it for better results.
