Since Wolverine misses the boat with regard to a built-in capability to output a file at normal 8mm speeds and at an acceptable mp4 quality, a certain amount of post-capture work is required to get acceptable movies. I developed a work flow and am wondering whether others are doing something simpler or better than my workflow.
I've been:
1-Setting up 4 folders on my C:\ drive: Raw, Muxed, Enhanced, and Final.
2-copying files from the sd card to the Raw folder on C:\drive.
3-Using MyMP4Box, de-mux each raw file, and then muxing it at either 16 or 18 fps. Save results in Muxed folder.
4- Using the enhancing part of AnyMP4, enhance to smooth out the
Wolverine visual noise and get rid of inherent speckling. Save the results in the Enhanced folder.
5. Do an edit in NCH VideoPad. Here is where I run through to eliminate the sections hung up on the Wolverine as a result of bad splices, make any other needed crops, edits, whatever, and save the results in the Final Folder.

I imagine that each of us doing a reasonable number of Wolverine transfers has developed a work flow routine. Perhaps this fits in this Wolverine thread, or perhaps it could be a separate thread --- up to the moderators. Anyway it's an important part of using this good, but incomplete Wolverine machine if a quality output is required.
