    There are many tools to make a video that can brighten a video.

    iMovie for Mac or Windows Movie Maker for Windows

    Activate for example, Windows Movie Maker on your PC:

    Import your file in the video editing software of your choice.
    Either:
    • the import is done directly from the camcorder
    • or you import the file from the hard drive of your camcorder


    Once your clips imported into the software, simply find the proper function depending on the tool or software used.

    You can do this on a part of the video only (what is called a clip before editing) or all of your video.

    Examples:
    With iMovie, you select a clip and you apply the effect brightness / contrast. The effect applies to the entire clip.
    With Windows Movie Maker: same menu via the "video effects" you select "Brightness increase and you apply it to your clip.

    Tips
    • Remember to adjust the brightness of the image filmed at the time of the shooting for better results in terms of image quality.
    • The ideal is not to import the sound - only the image or video to clarify - for weight issues files (as pronounced slowdown).
