Learned about this from Scott’s blog, and thought it might be pretty useful. Particularly if you use your cell phone as a video recording device!
Basically, FixMyMovie.com is an all in one movie cleaner upper. Too dark? It brightens it. Too shaky? It steadies it. Seemed to do a decent job on their blog in their demo videos, but in my own test it didn’t work too great. I’ve embedded two videos below, one uploaded straight to YouTube and the other run through FixMyMovie.
I deliberately did it in low light and then in no light. Unfortunately neither really came out. I’ll be doing more tests, but I’m curious to know if anybody else has any ‘too dark’ videos and wants to try it out. If you do, leave me some links! Love the idea in theory, and hope it works in practice.
