Good evening!

The camera head got dirty during the shot last week. We now got block artefacts when transfering the material (shot on minidv, XL1s) to the computer. (It's definitely the tape the artefacts are on.) Do you know any solution that might help us getting rid of those artefacts?

With best regards,

Have you tried playing the tape on a deck other than teh one you recorded on. I'd try that first.

Anyone out there who knows a solution? Perhaps it's possible to reduce the artefacts in postpro?

Unfortunately not, like Walter said, that's pretty much the end of the road.

...though if you are really desperate, you could try & reconstruct the frames in photoshop or a similar programme... very time consuming, and the touch up will stand out like a sore thumb.
