This example clip shows you how useful Avisynth can be to restore old 8mm films.
Please use the full download to see the clip as it should be, and I suggest to use ffdshow to see this Mpeg4 clip with decent gamma settings, like it should be.
This regular-8mm film was made in 1958 on Kodachrome. The author has used an anamorphic lens.
It was a quick and dirty (dry) transfer, the film needs more cleaning and a new wetgate transfer.
This clip is a compilation from 5 clips, so you will see the frame counter jumping....
