I am absolutely new to video editing. I own a Sony DCR-HC46 camcorder. The only editing software I have is Microsoft Movie Maker. I am just shooting videos right now to log my hiking trips although I do post them on YouTube for fun. My problem is that when I use MM to capture the video from my camcorder the video winds up way darker than the tape captured. I shot some video of a moose outside my tent in Maine the other morning. The camcorder captured it beautifully but when I tried to transfer it, the picture was dark to the point of seeing basically the outline of the moose. I am considering purchasing a version of Pinnacle Studio. But I don't want to spend a lot of money. Any help?
