The power of Avisynth: restoring old 8mm films.

UPDATE 20/06/2012

Newest version of the script:

- improved autolevels
- improved stabilisation
- improved sharpening
- less plugins
- plugins are now in "plugins' folder.
- better helpfiles


UPDATE 06/06/2011

The script discussed in this thread only works good with high quality film transfers.
The digital source must be progressive and there should be no duplicate frames.

Many people, however, are having already a digital transfer of their old 8mm films on DVD.
My script is useless here. But you can use some parts of it.
For those people, FPP has made this exellent thread:


ORIGINAL POSTING 14th january 2009:
I have posted an example clip on Vimeo to show the people the incredible power of Avisynth.

With special thanks to Fizick, Didée, Manao for making these exellent plugins available for all of us.

Special thanks to Josey_Wells too for the multithreaded version.
Averaging more then 4 frames in MVDegrainMulti() works very well for removing film dirt spots.

The example clip is showing the result of a special film restoring script I have made.

The filmtransfer itself was done by me, but that film needs a second wetgate transfer.
There was a dirt spot on the CCD from my camera too. But that's easy enough to fix.

I just could not wait to show you all these first results.
