Hmmmm, tricky... You can't really put back information that isn't there... I assume it got pixelated because you (or someone else) enlarged it...

One thing to try if your editing softeware can do it, it to apply a Gaussian Blur to the footage... It'll smooth it out a bit.

What editing software are you using?

Like Paul said, it is tricky to get something that isn't there (Although, don't we all wish we had an "ENHANCE" button like those CSI shows do)

This is all I could really find on the topic, but I think that it is mostly dealing with converting high quality into low quality. Maybe it will point you in a correct direction. I guess it also depends on what software you're using too: http://forum.videohe...opic196528.html

This tutorial may help identify some of the problems you're having with the footage, but it's only a quick overview of video restoration.

You may not be able to fully restore your video, but you should be able to make it slightly more 'watchable'.
