Hi all.

I'm looking for a Mac workflow to improve my VHS DV captures using a Canopus ADVC55. The quality is good, but would like to correct the chroma shift (aka color bleeding) by a few pixels horizontally and vertically.

The only thing I've seen is legacy FCP and a third party plugin, but alas nowadays I only have FCX and iMovie.

Can anyone offer a suggestion of an all Mac workflow?

Many thanks!

Lee.

So many ways if you Google.
Yea without the FCP version you are stuck with trying out other NLE apps as well as After Effects.

Thanks for responding.

I have searched Google a number of times but not found anything useful when using "chroma shift color bleed" as keywords. I have CS6 in my toolbox so if there are articles referencing them I'd appreciate a link if you have one to share?

An external TBC could help here if you're really serious about it.
I assume that's a hardware video controller of some sort? I'll probably want to try using software first rather than investing more money at this stage, but thanks for your reply.
