    Default looking for simple video editor for colour allteration

    Hi
    I have some old .avi's of my grandchildren which are a little dark.


    I'm looking for a 'simple' video editor to correct this.


    A freebie application would be nice.


    Thanks

    Hi vj531,

    Have you tried looking at Windows Movie Maker? It comes free with all Windows machines.
    If you're on Mac, try looking at iMovie.

    These are both very simple video editors and should have effects to counter this problem.

    Thanks

    Movie maker is very good but I need a little more adjustment for colour and contrast etc. I found this and it did the trick Welcome to virtualdub.org! - virtualdub.org

    Many here like Vegas and Sony offers a 30-day free trial . . . possible a little too powerful, so try their Movie Studio which is still cheap should you want to buy. You can fix "colour" in highlights and Mid as well as Shadows, but don't think it will be easy - you need to render and view on a decent screen - most PCs just aren't powerful enough in real-time - that's my take. . . . . . . . . . . . BTW Sony website has loads of Tutorials and M-S also comes with some that force you to perform the actions . . . this might be a little "Excessive" for a simple colour correction, but soon you'll want to include Text, maybe a transition, adjust brightness, contrast and add some royalty-free music . . . Hope that helps....
