Just bought the software recently, but have had no time to use it yet. I have this video I converted to digital from a 20+ year old source. With the tools CS6 has, what could I do to clean it up a little (see pic)? I like the way Microsoft Picture View has a "mid-range" adjustment for bringing down contrast and brightness. This pic makes it look a little better than it actually does when see on a larger screen - the only tool I had at the time when I converted it 6 years ago to adjust with was the Gamma. Any advice?
Anything from tweaking levels to sophisticated channel operations to get better per pixel alignment to simply reducing grain, but well, if this is your first time using AE, it will be far too complicated to explain all the advanced stuff. As a start, use the Remove Grain filter and then try your hand at some basic color corrections using the Curves and Levels effects.
Well, it's a start. Thanks!
