Windows 7: Video Editing

31 Jan 2010   #1

Video Editing

I have a small video clip I took with my Kodak C743 camera. It is too dark and I would like to lighten it . This I can do in Windows Media Player but it does not let me save my changes. I can't see them putting those tools in there if we can't use them. I must be doing something wrong but I don't know what. By the way, with this camera a .mov format is used. I changed it to .avi and it still doesn't let me save the video. Any Suggestions?

Hello oletar,

I am not good at movie editing myself, but perhaps this link will help you. It is a list of the top 5 free video editing programs.

Hope this helps,

Other than letting the player make changes, or changes with the recorder itself:

The only other way i know of to alter the video itself, is to re-code it & run it through a video filter.
Something like FFDshow filters, for example, set the brightness, contrast, luminace, saturation etc how you like it and have the encoder encode it with those settings.

Video editing
I do a fair bit of video editing and I have recently upgraded the ram to 8gb and gone to win 7 64bit. I built the pc a few weeks back and have yet to add a card. It appears gaming is the main priority and wonder if anyone has any first hand experience with a good card.

Video Editing Program
I have a movie file that I'd like to watch but it is a transfer of an old VHS and therefore has a lot of hiss and noise that makes it almost too hard to watch. Is there a good, preferably free, program that will let me take out the hiss and noise. Is there such a program ?
