Thank for the feedback-
I had not thought too much about the audio mixing. I was hoping to pull something out - be it score, opening credits or or sound effects - something as far as sound just for the chance to learn something. as for the ratio.... again, very good point.
this is all new - I have not messed with anything like this before-
so- with that- it's time to see what "noise" can be removed, and how the picture can be improved...
again- I'm not hoping to make this an award winning work, but I figure with all of its short comings - audio, story, picture. I could use it to learn and see what I can do- If I can turn this from a cold hard pile of crap to something that does not cause PTSD, then I might give this a whirl on some other movie.

thanks
agian-

I work graves and have two nights a week to be awake with nothing to do but watch movies and goof around on the computer.

So-
I have never done anything like this before.
I am going to try and put glitter on a turd and see about cleaning this thing up, maybe 16:9, maybe 5.1, clear up the image, work on contrast, and colors.
I might try and edit it up some to make the story better. (I know I need to get rid of "lucky" the leprichan - but how is the question)

So - I put no time frame on this - I make no promises, but I figure I can't mess it up -

However, I am only going to try and use free and shareware stuff. I have a few mid cost programs that my wife uses for family videos, but nothing high end.

All I ask, is if anyone has some pointers and help for me - I'll be happy to listen.

Wish me luck-

Maybe if this works out-I'll try the same thing with something a little more worth it.

STAR WARS: EP IV 2004 <strong>REVISITED</strong> ADYWAN *<em>720p HD VERSION NOW IN PRODUCTION</em>
Time
I know the pain- when I was in college, I was working in my composion class. I had 4 movements of a six part symphony lost in the void of digital space. the back up I made was unreadable for some reason - old Zip drive disc. I was lucky that I had dropped it to a cassette and had the hard copy of the score, or I would have failed that class. I have never re-entered it.

on another note, I have used cdcheck to find errors on discs it has worked when other things have not - it's free, so no harm to try.

good luck on the recovery.
