VirtualDub Filter Pack
This is a free easy-to-use automatic installer of 20 plugins for VirtualDub and Video Enhancer. To use filters from this pack you need at least one of these programs installed. Download now! (1.2 MB)

You can find VirtualDub here. This is a powerful free video editing program, but it can open only AVI files and does not use the power of dual core and multiprocessor systems when filtering.

You can find Video Enhancer here. This is a program which can open different types of video (AVI, MPG, WMV, MOV, RM, etc..) and it works a lot faster than VirtualDub on hyperthreading, dual core and multiprocessor machines.

Below is the list of filters in this pack. Go to filter's page to get its source code (if available).

Denoising:
2D Cleaner Jim Casaburi
Averages pixels in a configurable radius around a source pixel that are within a configurable threshold of the central pixel. This has the effect of blending low-level video noise while retaining sharp details.

Dynamic Noise Reduction Steven Don
Reduces changes across frames by eliminating dynamic noise without blurring. This helps MPEG compression without damaging image quality.

fxVHS flaXen
The original VHS filter. Noise reduction & sharpening functions.

Smart Smoother Donald Graft
Performs structure-preserving smoothing (blurring). It is ideal for removing video noise as well as MPG/JPG blocking artifacts.

Deinterlacing:
Asvzzz deinterlace Serge Andyk
Deinterlaces moving areas.

Deinterlace "Muksun" Stolyarevskiy Sergey
High performance deinterlacing filter.

http://acobw.narod.ru/deinterlace.html

Deinterlace - area based Gunnar Thalin
Deinterlaces the frames only where it's needed by simply looking for interlace lines in each frame individually. When it detects interlace lines, it removes them using either blending or interpolation depending on your settings.

Smart Deinterlacer Donald Graft
Provides a smart, motion-based deinterlacing capability. In static picture areas, interlacing artifacts do not appear, so data from both fields is used to provide full detail. In moving areas, deinterlacing is performed.

Color correction:
Automatic correction of white balance Stolyarevskiy Sergey
Automatic correction of white balance, also some temporal denoising.

Visual effects:
MSU Cartoonizer MSU Video Group
Designed for painting, drawing and animated cartoon rendering. Converts movies into cartoons!

http://compression.ru/video/cartoonizer/index_en.html

MSU OldCinema Filter MSU Video Group
Intended to achieve an "Old cinema " effect, film aging: color scale adjustment and also a set of artifacts to achieve a better realism and to give it a "chronicle" view.

Sharpening:
MSU Smart Sharpen MSU Video Group
Allows to enhance image sharpness with minimum noise amplification.

Xsharpen Donald Graft
Performs a subtle but useful sharpening effect.

Other:
Border Control Simon Walters
Designed to allow you to manipulate the regions at the top, bottom and sides of a frame.

Logoaway Krzysztof Wojdon
Created to remove logos from video sequence. Logo is a small sign usually put in one of the corners. Logos usualy destroy quality of encoded video stream.

MSU Smart Deblocking MSU Video Group
Intended for recovering quality of video ripped from DVD (for example, when it contains 4 hours of video data), VideoCD, shot on cameraphone or after decompressing by H.261, H.263, DivX 3, DivX 4, XviD.

UnViewFields Simon Walters
All this does is refold the fields back to normal after a ViewFields operation.

ViewFields Simon Walters
This filter is nearly identical to the unfold fields option within VirtualDub's built-in deinterlace filter except that it re-arranges the top field on the top and the bottom field on the bottom of a frame.
