got some home videos transferred from VHS tape to DVD

the DVD's are VOB files

some of these are old videos and the quality is not the best. I wanted to try and clean them up ... elminate the static,lighten,hue saturation etc.

i have programs that can do this to avi etc

but none of them will accept VOB files

i can always encode them to another format ... edit them ... encode them back.

but every time you encode you lose quality and i'm afraid they will end up with worse video quality than they have now.

any suggestions?

I don't personally know of a program that'll let you edit a vob and save it back out as a vob, but I know Virtualdub would let you edit the file and then dump it out lossless.

The problem with that would be that Virtualdub isn't easy to jump right into, and saving the lossless copy would take up a shitload of drive space.
