How to stop footage being automatically darkened? [Hitfilm Express]
Was hoping someone could help me with a problem I'm having. I'm editing scenes shot at night and want to increase visibility - I was hoping decreasing contrast / increasing brightness would do the trick, but the best I can get is this:
However, what's unusual is that when I play the clip in the editor, the preview contains a lot more visual information:
(screenshotted during playback)
So, given that this visual information exists, there must be some way to further decrease contrast so that the exported video will look like the second image. Does anyone know how to do this / why the regular contrast slider does not help?
