Adjusting contrast

Recommended Posts

I have some video taken by a timelapse Brinno. There is a body of water in the background that is often too bright, causing contrast issues. An example is posted on YouTube ahttps://youtu.be/R6-OISqzSbE

Ideally, I would like to run some sort of brightness/contrast filter on the video to tone down the bright areas. E.g. Some sort of function that can reduce brighter areas, but leave the darker ones alone.

I'm new to VideoPad. I've done quite a bit of pasting clips together, etc. but not much of what might be termed "video transforms" and I'm not sure if there is anything that I can use. Can this sort of thing be done with VideoPad??

There are a couple of ways you might correct this..

  1. Use the Exposure effect. This can reduce the "glare" somewhat.
  2. Use the Colour Adjustments effect. This will enable you to correct the contrast/brightness/gamma of the clip.

This is your original...


This is using the Exposure effect...


This is using the Color Adjustments effect...


Come back in if you are still not sure...

Hope this helps
