Color Rainbow On Recorded Vhs To Computer


After recording a VHS tape to the computer, the replay of the video has a rainbow effect on the played back video. Green across the top of the screen, faint purple across mid screen. The strange color recording is also seen in the preview screen. How do i clear this up? When the VHS when played through the VCR to the flat screen TV it has none of these colorful effects, only the true color. Something has happened in the transfer. Help!

I would guess it is from MacroVision, a copy protection system common in commercial VHS tapes...


Otherwise if you FF to the end and do a full rewind, that often helps with older tapes ;)
