Hey guys, I just registered here because I really want to find a solution to my problem. I took some really great videos in Miami and some of them were at night with the skyline in the background.
Well today i'm looking at the videos and you can't make out the buildings at all, you can only tell they're there by the lights. So I tried making them brighter in windows movie maker and it didn't help at all. Then I found the video settings in windows media player, and amazingly it worked perfectly. It makes the video brighter, you can make out the buildings perfectly. It worked flawless. I went to save as really happy with the results until I opened the saved file and realized it doesn't save the settings :(
So I search on the internet for programs that make videos brighter. I found a few but they all fail horribly compared to wmp's settings. None make the buildings show up, they all just make the existing light brighter. I then thought about finding a program that would record the video from my wmp and save it as a new file but I could only find programs that record streaming video.
So I'm really desperate here because I want to put these videos on facebook to share with family and friends, and i'm so close with wmp's settings that I can taste it. Is there anyway at all, preferably free, that I can save these videos with these settings intact or is there a way to brighten the videos on par with wmp that I missed.
