How would you treat this interference noise in a video?

Post by rimage » Sun Dec 15, 2013 3:44 pm

Trying to remedy a specific kind of noise in a video, this horizontal banding that looks like electrical interference of some sort. Not talking about the interlace combing but rather the background banding. Below is a screen shot and a link to a short .mpg example.

Original ... 1387078276

After my initial effort to treat with NV, the banding is still there. ... 1387078341

Short video example - 3.79 mb ... ample2.mpg

I would try to build a noise profile using a large area including those waves, then would enable Very Low Freq option, probably increase the Low Freq Noise Level, play with the temporal filter radius too.

Sorry this reply is so late, hopefully you figured this out already but I wanted to reply so that people didn't end up confused by what they were seeing vs what you reported.

Your clip is either Interlaced. Or Possibly a mix of Interlaced + Telecine as well.

I found that out with 5 minutes of playing around in MeGUI using DGindex and various deinterlacing techniques.

There are still some combing artifacts but I was able to produce an image almost devoid of combing, vs all the combing your screenshots showed.

You probably just need to fiddle around with something like Avisynth and a very good (i.e slow) decomb filter.
