Didn't you say you had a good video of the movie already? The one with bad audio. Use the video from the DVD (copy VOB files to the hard drive and use those in VideoWave) and then use the audio from the tape (you said you have done this in the past.)

 

Is the audio on the original tape bad? If so, you are out of luck if unless it is minor distortion and you can fix it in Sound Editor. You can also try Bias Sound Soap or Gold Wave. Both of those audio programs have free trial (I think.)

 

If neither of the above is a correct interpretation of your problem, perhaps if you clarify?

 

Start to save up for a new analog to digital converter (not video card). You can A/D converters as cards or as USB devices. How well they work on your computer does rely on you video card and how good your computer is. You've been around for awhile, why haven't you added your computer specs to your signature?

It's hard to say really whether it will or won't improve. If the sound is dostorted already, you can't make it better (that's presuming you are making it from the DVD rather than the Video Cassette)

 

What to watch for - do a test capture and alter the sound levels in the audio propewrties. If they're too high, the audio will start to 'clip' but the best level is by experimentation with small segments first

 

You don't need to burn those to DVD - save them as .iso images and load them in Disc Image Loader (as an emulated drive)

The problem is that if the audio is distorted on the DVD the 'GIGO' rule kicks in (Garbage In = Garbage Out)

 

No program will improve distortion really - you can't get any improvement on what you feed in

No need for a third party software. If you have the sound track as a wave file, simply add your video to Video Wave, mute the native audio track (show hide tracks and then the speaker icon) and add the audio to any of the other audio tracks. You could use, for example the music track. You can move the audio back and forth until it lines up. You may have to work in 10-15 minute segments to reduce or eliminate any AV sync issues.
