I have recorded a video but is rather dark as the venue was not well lit. Result is some figures in the background cannot be seen. What video editing is there that is good for editing it so that its brighter. I suppose I need one with filters built in. Any help woul;d be gratefully received.

You could try Windows Movie Maker, click here, you tube. Before doing anything I would make a copy and use the copy, with a different name, to play about with, in case of a disaster.

Thanks, tried that but not effective enough, think I may need a more powerful prog.

You may find it difficult with any program. You cannot make something out of nothing.

Well there is a File Lab editor which works through your browser so needs a plug-in. I've never used it but might do in the future. YouTube,FileLab, McAfee">https://www.filelab.com/video-editor?pip=false&premium=false&client_uid=1997796765&client_ver=3.6.4.160&client_type=IEPlugin&suite=false&aff_id=0&locale=en_gb&ui=1&os_ver=6.2.0.0">McAfee site advisor. Worth a look?

First two links ok it's the McAfee link to show FileLab is ok that went tits up. Shows what you can do with hue and saturation as well as colours.

Try McAfee link again, click here is right but you might be able to adjust it slightly better.
