[Help] Combining two out of sync sources for the best possible output
#1
Video 
Hello! I'm not sure where to post about this or where to begin, so I am sorry if this is the wrong topic for this thread.

I've been googling for solutions for these many problems for about half a day, until I found this forum. I've been reading some of the posts and I think this is a good place to ask for some help.
I have an HDTV broadcast 'rip', a rip from my DVD, and a SRT file that syncs to the HDTV version of a movie that as far as I am aware has no blu-ray release (Psy, 1992) meaning the HDTV rip is the only HD version in existence, along with the HD version having better colour. There are some problems with this rip including

-Low bitrate
-TV logos
-Stereo sound (this not THAT big of an issue)
-Both the DVD and HDTV versions are 25fps with duplicated frames

The DVD also has some problems like crushed blacks and poor film scanning/mastering, but it has surround sound audio, and no logos.

I saw this post which seems to be exactly what I am trying to do with the logos, but there's not much info on how to do it.

What I am hoping to do is combine the two sources into one best source while also doing some processing on the HD source to remove some of the blockiness. One of the biggest problems is that the two sources are HORRIBLY out of sync (every shot change throws any correction attempt out the window too)  I am a complete noob in AviSynth but I do know how to use VirtualDub (I am willing to learn new software for this!!) Any help is appreciated! Thanks!

Yeah this is the wrong topic, it should have gone in Audio and Video editing. I can't move or delete it though.

I was hoping there was an automatic way to do this, but I might just have to realign the the image. The DVD master is so warped that I can't manually align it. My plan is to use the automatic align tool in Photoshop by splitting all of the video frames individually, which hopefully won't take up too much space...
EDIT: Nope. 1.2 Tb predicted size. I have the space for that, but then my HDD will be full. Hoping to find another solution.

You can find a 720p version, without logo (checked personally), on
Monova - Psy Remastered 1992 720p.avi [2.59 GB]
also others, just search for torrents.

My advice: use the 720p to get rid of the logo of the 1080 version, then merge them to try to get a better quality - at least, result "should" be a bit better than the 1080 "as is" (logo aside).
Sadly my projects are lost due to an HDD crash... Sad

Thanks!! That will be a lot easier than trying to match the DVD shot for shot. I do have just one more question though, what do you mean to "merge" them?

Overlay them to get rid of some imperfections due to different sources... amount is up to you, I'd say minor for lower resolution or bitrate, but it's trials and errors (and waste of time, but fun too!)

I see.

I have the 720p source now, and it is almost perfectly in sync, (except it falling out of sync by one frame towards the end but I can easily fix that Smile ) and I am using DrDre's Color Match tool to match the color. The only issue I have now is the alignment of the frame. Do you have any suggestions on how this can be automated or is this just something that has to be done manually?

Well, if it's just one frame difference, use just the 720p one! Big Grin
