[HELP] Poor VHS capture
I need to upscale this VHS capture, but it has a strange moiré pattern, perhaps due to poor TV reception. The tape is from 1983.
Is recapturing an option?
Source is:
a. over exposed (+ some values out of tv scale)
b. has tons of compression artifacts (that looks like overcompressed noise)
c. occasional dropout

Ignoring the color issues, I would start with somthing like using:
a. crop + get rid of the black and broken borders
b. using TemporalDegrain2 or MCDegrainSharp + SpotLess (temporal radius = 2) for denoising.
c. some light dehaloing using YAHR
d. on the left border you can use BalancedBorders
(script:; note the filter order)
With that as a base could look at whether using CodeFormer or BasicVSR++ is a good idea, I suspect not in general (might help in some scenes, but will cause problems in other scenes).

Main problem is the lack of detail and the over exposure.

Ps.: moved the thread, since it's neither a bug or a problem with Hybrid.
The patterning is on the tape which was recorded from TV in 1983, and re-capture is not an option. It is a capture direct from the VHS tape via a Canopus DV bridge. Sadly, this tape has poor TV aerial reception.

I will try what you suggest. Smile

Apologies, this is the correct file:
