    I pulled about 3 hours of VHS tape from my VCR through to my capture card using S-Video (least signal loss out of the available options) and it's saved in uncompressed AVI format (~40GB combined).

    What can I use to "remaster" or clean up the video? I have premiere and final cut pro, are there filters in there that will remove jumpy frames and color bleed?

    If not, anyone have any good ideas or professional references that can do that? The colors are very washed out, and some get distorted after a few seconds. (This is on the source, both before and after transfer.)

    Edit: A lot of this stuff was from the 70's. It's NTSC 29.97 FPS. 12 Bit Audio.

    check this out, it sounds like something that might work but it requires additional programs, not plugins, to do the cleaning of the captured file...
