    I wonder how I can reduce the noise (video, not audio) from my old VHS tapes
    before i burn them to DVD. I use Vegas 4 to edit the recordings, but if
    there's a better software to remove/reduce noise, I'd like to know it, if
    any of you please could tell me?

    TMPGEnc can do a good job of reducing noise while encoding to MPEG2;
    however, it is exceedingly slow at it.

    I've read that VirtualDub can be used for noise reduction, but I
    haven't tried that myself.

    Check the "What VirtualDub filters..." thread from a few days ago.
    Numerous filters were suggested and different filters are good at
    removing different types of noise.

    I do a lot of capturing/burning of OTA TV episodes to DVD so the only
    filter that I use (if any) is VDub's built-in "smoother" at a setting of
    10-25. On my AthlonXP 2600+, it doesn't slow the process down too much
    (20fps), cleans it up "enough", and is a hell of a lot faster then
    TMPGEnc's NR filter (which doubles or triples encoding time).

    Within Vegas, try the following:
    Duplicate the track.
    Add a slight gausian blur to the top track.
    Set the opacity to around 30%.
    Play a little.
