So I found out something new about my minidv camcorder. That is the
fact that I have never used it inside and thatall the footage I have
taken has been natural light outside which gives absolutely perfect
quality. Well the problem is I was asked if my sister could use it for
her wedding and I said okay. Well my camcorder does bad quality at any
non natural light level (church was in no way dark but still had
slight problems) and as the scene is darker it gets worse.. The only
outside parts are perfect quality and require no filters.

I have never used filters since my other footage was perfect so I
would like some help and what would best make this video clean and

I plan on making this into a dvd as such I don't need it deinterlaced
since I have always preserved the interlacing and had it turn out
awesome on the tv.

If you can make it a mencoder line as the source is raw.dv and I can
only open it in mplayer and kino which sucks for filters.

the current method I used for my dvds is a slightly modified default
kino ffmpeg line as shown here

ffmpeg  -f dv -i pipe: -f rawvideo -pix_fmt yuv420p pipe: \
-vn -f $audio_format -ac 2 -ab $audio_bitrate -ar 48000 -y "$AC3" | \
ffmpeg  -f rawvideo -pix_fmt yuv420p -s "$normalisation" -r
"$normalisation" -i pipe: \
-an -target dvd -f mpeg1video -b 7000 -maxrate 8000 -ildct -ilme -top
0 -aspect 4:3 -y "$M2V"
mplex  -f 8 -o "$file".vob "$M2V" "$AC3"

Here are 3 examples of the video

Let me say again PLEASE help me.
