Hi folks! Name is Craig and I'm brand-new to the forum... This is a GREAT resource, btw!
I am editing my wedding video with Sony Vegas 9.0b from the DV tape my Sony DCR-HC28 produced, and have run into something that has made me scratch my head. While it's not a show-stopper, I have to ask.
My bride and I were standing at the altar (of course) where there is an overhead skylight. Her dress looks BRILLIANT, but our guests in the background do not.
So, here are my two questions:
1. Is there any way to darken the brilliant whites while lightening the darker areas of a frame?
2. Should I open each clip in the Trimmer and edit each individually before adding to the Timeline, or add/edit the timeline and then edit the clip as a whole?
Sorry - total n00b here. lol
