Yay!! I finally figured it out. Worked like a charm. Got all my original mp4's slowed to 18fps. Thank you Jagabo!!

Unfortunately that's the best quality that I will be able to achieve with this cheaper base model Wolverine. I've heard mixed reviews on it and it's generally regarded as "not great". Thank you John for the advice on finding the original transfers. I'm glad I found them.. They look a little nicer than the re-encoded versions that I messed with. I would still like to clean them up the best I can. I have approximately 20 X 4 minute reel transfers of family footage. Any suggestions for noise removal?
This month I have to shoot in low light conditions. Video post-processing can improve video quality, but I am planning to buy a new camera. Who has experience with low light photography? I read about the specs of these camcorders, my budget is around $ 1000. Will this amount be enough to buy a good video camera?

I don't have time to review your camcorders, but one of the most important specs for reducing noise is the size of the sensor. Bigger sensor = lower noise.
Having been using the wolverine since 2017 I can tell you that there is very little you can do, in fact the less you do to a scan, the better.
Any re encoding is going to have a negative effect.
The compression is so heavy and the upscaling of the images to produce so called 720p is awful.
The wolverine does not scan in 1440x1080, which is what you get in the resulting video file, at 30fps, it scans at something like 720 x 540 then electronically doubles the image size to give you 1440x1080 and uses what is basically a car dash cam in time lapse mode with a tiny little 8mm lens, to create the video.
So from the word go, you are at a disadvantage trying to do anything to improve it.
Best guess, change the exposure setting for the dark part of the scan, but that will leave you will a few segments of video instead of one long clip.
To overcome that and the frame rate problem, you can use MYMP4BOX Gui to join the segments of video together and change the frame rate, without re encoding in the traditional sense of a NLE.

The last post from the OP, paulmolive, was in April. That post DID concern the Wolverine scanner, and I attempted to help him with that. However, he has not posted since April, so this thread has been moribund until the slightly OT post by Grunterh yesterday. It is that post that I answered, and which you ignored.
Unless you intended to jump back in and answer a post from April, then I do think you posted incorrectly.
However, I am not a moderator, so go ahead and keep posting. Maybe the OP is still trying to fix his problem from five months ago.
