Have a representative sample here of about 60hours (!) of video I'm looking to encode. I am still fairly new to the process but now have QTGMC working with avisynth in virtualdub and have done many encodes in the past with handbrake. I was wondering if anyone has suggestions for this source (huffy avi). It's fairly dark with some noise - pretty much the whole 60 hours have lecturers in front of the same background with both close-up and distant shots (both represented in this sample) . It's from 14 VHS tapes total, so they range in quality, some are a bit cleaner than others. Some the colors seem a bit faded. So my questions are:
1) Should I deinterlace via interpolation with a double frame rate?
2) Should I consider a denoiser, maybe the one built into QTGMC?
3) Any other suggestions for the source?
Each tape has 5 or 6 45-min lectures, so I'm looking to split those into ~1000kbps mp4 files as the end result.

The single best thing you could do is go back and recapture the tapes with a line TBC.
