A friend of mine has recently had her 1960s 8mm footage transferred to DVD.
The footage is surprisingly high quality, but as you can imagine, there is plenty of the usual black speckles and the frame jumps up and down quite a lot.
Is there anything that can be done to improve the footage?
I have Adobe Premiere Pro and Adobe After Effects.

I will try and get a clip posted. In the meantime, it's basically the typical black "specks" you get with such footage. They're easily removed in Photoshop with the content-aware fill tool, but I'm not doing that frame-by-frame :P
It's removedirt and maybe removegrain that you need.
Unless this is a proper frame-by-frame transfer, you need to get back to the original frames first. These cleaning filters won't work where the original film frame is blurred/blended/copied across several video frames/fields.
