  1. I've got a avi file which is very dark
    Now I want to convert it via virtualdub (frameserving) and tmpgenc
    into a dvdfile.
    How can I make theis avi file look brighter?
    Which virtdub filter could I use for this (or is there any)?

    Thanks in advance

    You can use the HSV filter (Hue, Saturation,Value), though AVIs often appear darker than normal on the computer screen. Have you checked it on a TV?(If that is your final destination)

    If you want better color filters, just do a Google search for VirtualDub filters. There are a lot of them out there.

    It could look perfect on a TV. Do a test burn. Your monitor is almost always gonna be darker than your TV. (Some little thing about radiation/EPA and eye fatigue.)
    Your miserable life is not worth the reversal of a Custer decision.

    Or, try AVISynth and its filters for frameserving.

  5. I use the "Levels" filter.
    HSV is nice for adjusting colours, but doesn't do much for brightness, and the "brightness/contrast" filter just makes things washed out.

  6. Thanks for all your replies
    I first will try to watch the movie on a tv screen (can watch the divx on my dvdplayer) and hereafter i'll try the HSV filters in virtdub.
