An uncompressed digitized VHS tape is like 60 gigs. Obviously way too big. I can compress it down using H.265 and get basically the same quality. But before I do that, is there any production techniques I can use on the uncompressed files to get a better image?
I've only ever dealt with raw photo images. I know that with raw photos I can do a ton more post processing because the bitdepth is deeper than the human eye can gather so there's a lot more information for the post processor to access.
Is this true of a digitized VHS video tape too? Is there any post processing I can do that will improve the image that I should do BEFORE I compress it?
