I recently got a new DVD recorder, and I'm converting some tapes, some of which are NTSC-J tapes so the black level is different from a USA tape. While I have my VCR set up to make the blacks correct, I'm not completely sure that the fixed signal is getting to my DVD recorder for some reason. When I play it back on my TV, it looks like they are crushed, but I have no way to make certain. I know Vegas can do it, but I don't have it and would like a program that I wouldn't have to pay for. Also, I tried Avidemux but I can't figure it out. So if someone could tell me a program, or just test this one video for me I would be incredibly grateful! It's a small video, only 6.9 MB. Thanks a lot!
