Hey folks, I’m looking for advice on how to handle restoring some old videos I have from my grandmother in the 50’s and 60’s on super8 film. My mother had them professionally digitized a number of years ago, and I recently came into possession of them after her passing earlier this year.
The videos have about every issue you could imagine:
- Non standard framerate (15fps)
- Lots of scratches/noise
- Coloration issues
There’s a lot of things I can do with standard video editing tools (exposure/color correction, optionally sstability), and topaz (scratch restoration, stability, framerate increase, upscale/enhance). But given that I have so many concurrent issues, I’m looking for advice on what order to do things in. For example, I might not want to enhance the frame rate too early on, as the shaky footage and noise might make the interpolated frames less useful. I might want to color/exposure correct the footage before I attempt upscaling and face enhancement, etc. (Also worth noting that Davinci Resolve doesn’t supports 15fps )
Anyone have any suggestions on how you would handle the process?
