Removing dust water spots on lens cover question on vegas editing abilities

have shot ten years of footage, and am now just beginning to edit. transfered hdv tapes to cineform neoscene setting on high. four major editing needed.
1. removal of water spots on footage in the sky...is that possible..(like cloning them out with a still foto inphotoshop?)
2. removing shake from pan shots of sea otters and whale cooperative feeding (taken from a kayak or zodiac). better from virtual dub deshaker?
3. color saturation and darkening video to saturate the scene. many of my videos are overexposed by a stop.

the removal of water and dust spots in certain angles of light from the lens filter cover that is my greatest concern. Moral of the story is to constantly clean, but then when shootng large waves on the coast, spray accumulates with several seconds of shooting. i have vegas 9 now but have not yet used it, since i am ordering a computer to be able to install and edit with it. thanks in advance. bill

Couple of ways to get rid or lessen the water spots. Masking in Vegas or render to image sequence in Vegas, use Photoshop to color the spot bring the image sequence back into Vegas.
Shaky footage; take a look at the NewBlueFX site, they have a new plugin for Vegas that from what I hear works quite well.

Overexposure is usuually something that can't be fixed completely but you might be able to help it by using a combination of Levels, Color Curve and if it's still out there a pluging by Mike Crash called Auto Levels although I don't know or think it would work in version 9.
Again try NewblueFX-they have some plugins that can help out as well.

No I don't work for them but I do have and use a number of the Newblue plugins and I am thrilled with the end results.

Once you get started they have some free trials so you can try it before you buy it.

These are the first things off the top of my head. I'm sure more will come your way from others.
