    You're right.

    Finally I fail to get a reliable second-hand camcorder which forces me to change my decision.

    Recently I sent one Sony V8 tape to a profession shop, converting the PAL video to mp4 format and saved on an USB thumb stick/drive. On the whole the quality of the mp4 video is NOT bad, except certain short sections being slighly blurred and another short section tinted with yellow color.

    Would it be possible to rectify those problems on video editor ? If YES, please advise HOW?

    I'm running Kdenlive and Openshot here. Thanks in advance.

    Regards

    But basically yes, one can make corrections with any NLE (color wheels, filters etc).
    And there are powerful filters available in Avisynth, Vapoursynth, VirtualDub2 and so on.

    Hi@sharc,

    Sorry, I couldn't attached those problem sections of video here. I only attach their screenshots/screencaptures here.

    1) The screen is not clear. It only happens occasionally, not throughout the whole video.
    2) Rail cars are yellow in color. There is a vertical blue margin on the right of screenshot. The aforesaid margin always happens throughout the whole video

    Thanks

    Regards

    I have no idea whether the screencaptures can be attached here

    I've found the green strip down the right edge appears on all Sony V8 tapes, whether they are played on a Video 8/Hi8 camcorder or D8. I can only assume that Sony expected that that area would be masked by overscan and therefore not visible when played on a TV. One does wonder why it's there at all though.

    The bluriness could be focus; I don't think it's possible to selectively blur a tape as it is being captured.

    Thanks for your advice. I found that margin on all video captured by Sony Handycam. I couldn't do anything on it.

    The bluriness could be focus; I don't think it's possible to selectively blur a tape as it is being captured.
    The video was captured on car moving around in Sacramento, CA, USA. I set the videocam to auto focus.
    Only some sections are out of focus. The rest is in focus. I don't know why?

    I have edited part of the video and upload to YouTube. On the whole the quality of the video is acceptable

    Regards

    Railway color: Are you sure it should be "yellow"?
    Quickly using color wheels: Is this any better? I doubt.....

    Please advise how to apply it to a section of the video?

    Not apply to the whole video? Run Kdelive or OpenShot? Thanks

    Besides I have edited part of the mp4 video, additing both words and oral narration, subtitles etc. and upload it to YouTube. Unfortunately I couldn't attach its link here.

    Regards

    I think it is similar for all NLEs/editors: Split the video in sections using the timeline. Every section can be individually edited.
    Or set keyframes/markers and apply transitions.
    Study the help documentation of your editor(s).
