Blender's compositor will do exactly what you want, just enter the compositor (on the right of the help button on the menu, change default to compositor) check nodes and backdrop, add your video as input (press shift+A on the the compositing window) you can remove the render node since you are not using 3D, press shift+CTRL+left_mouse_button on the input ...

The cheapest tool is to use a desk lamp and light the scene better to begin with and use the white balance setting in the webcam software itself. It's a lot harder after the fact (if sufficient detail is even saved in the video to fix it at all). You could also try DaVinci Resolve Lite, it's a professional color grading and correction package that also ...

To add onto what Professor Sparkles said and to give more of a specific answer to your question, I believe this is done entirely in post (but I could be wrong because I have no experience on set). If anything, one could definitely reproduce this (or very close to it) in post by performing a few things: Remove Noise Balance your R,B,G channels Juice the ...

I have not seen any movie that used any onset technqiuqes for this look. Of course you want the lighting to give away a certain mood to begin with but there are no special filters needed. For the post production workflow, there is a great plugin for several video tools like After Effects, Premiere and Final Cut from Red Giant called Mojo that makes it ...

Neither viewpoint is wrong, they rather have different advantages. It is a question of dynamic range vs compression noise. My answer on the previous question may have been a little too strongly from my particular camp of thought (I was not aware of the compression related dark color issues at the time as I shoot high bit rate video primarily, which makes ...

There are two schools of thought on this topic but nothing I know has suggested that shooting with a flat profile is a bad thing. Here is what I understand: 1) When shooting with Canon DSLRs, it's generally advised that you shoot with a flat profile (Technicolor cinestyle, Prolost, etc.) and over expose (but don't clip!!) and you get a picture with much ...

No most video formats (nearly all) do not allow custom ICC color profiles to be embedded. most video on the consumer end is intended for the REC.709 color space. sRGB is similar and uses the same primaries. transcoding (including compressing) will almost always result is a slight shift in color accuracy, saturation, gamma curve, or black and white level ...

There isn't really a magic "enhance" button like on CSI. If there isn't enough information to see even part of the numbers (at least a blur where they are) then it is impossible to tell what is there because the information simply was not captured. It is most likely clipping, which means that everything in that area is the maximum possible whiteness and ...

Depending on the fidelity of the video you can try to do a high pass filter on the video, in essence it will sharpen edges of the scene and help bring it out. The two steps I would do: 1) De-noise it (I use the neat video plugin for after effects) 2) Run a high pass filter (photoshop has this, but not after effects). To emulate this: a) Create a ...
