After months of trials and errors with everything I have managed to capture the home video tapes using virtualdub/ezcap/vcr and a passthrough tbc. Generally, I am happy with the quality. But do you recommend some must use filters in virtual dub? And with what settings? I know there are limitless possibilities but do not want to spend too much time if the end product is not that noticeable. A little sharpening could be good as I turned it all the way down in video proc amp. And some color tuning but that could be done in premiere pro as well
Later, I will do title and timeline editing in Premiere Pro, and export to a digital file and keep it on PC. I know it is not preferable but if you are going to use it only on PC would you deinterlace the video?

The captures look like pretty decent captures of VHS material. I don't see anything obvious that needs to be fixed, other than levels and maybe a little color correction. The best place to do those is in your NLE, and since you're using a good one, I'd just skip doing anything in VirtualDub and AVISynth and simply do your grading in Premiere. It is a far better tool for that particular purpose.
