    I recently filmed an outdoor wedding on my dv cam.
    the wind reduction was not on, and the result is every time a gust of wind hits the mic. peoples voices are not heard as well as they should be. Does anyone know of any software which could remove or reduce this problem ? I have pinnacle studio 8, which is no help in this instance. I tried adobe premier 6 trial version, but couldn't get the noise to reduce sufficiently on that either.

    Your best bet is probably sound editing application like Sonic Foundry's Sound Forge or more budget line is something like CoolEdit

    Yep, I'd go for SoundForge. You can open, directly, many types of video file (although you can only edit the audio part). It has a wealth of filters, equalisers, and other tools, which you can apply to either the whole file, or to a selected part. You can preview the effect before applying it and it has loads of 'undo' steps in case you mess up. So, I guess you could highlight a gust of wind, and apply an equaliser to it to remove all the bass, below, say 300hz (trial and error to get the right value) etc......

    Just for info. I managed to improve the quality using a free program ( off the cover dvd of DigitalVideo made easy mag.)called Goldwave. Although I was unable to import the audio back into my Pinnacle studio 8 project, I simply saved the audio on to cd-rom and then imported it as a music track. I then turned the sound of the video off and it was only a matter of trial and error to get the audio and video in sync.
    The results were very good considering it cost nowt !!
