    "This is just a media player and doesn't do any enhancing or fixing. It seems like it would be okay if I needed a player, but I don't, I need to edit things. Will keep searching, why is this in the editing category? "

    "I have been a Mac user since forever and all I say is that it's crazy how Apple can continue to make iMovie worse every update. They do nothing but remove features and make the UI less intuitive. I have no idea who this is for, if you are a pro this is just missing too many features to be useful and if you are not you'll never figure out how to do anything. "

WHAT’S THE MEANING?

Video enhancing is a post-processing technique that involves color alteration and enhancement of a motion picture digitally. While video enhancement and video fixing are interchangeably used from time to time, the latter is used to describe a task they are performing, and it literally means correcting problems of the video using a  video-editing software. It includes exposure adjustments, white balance problems, color correction, just to name a few.

DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know that according to studies, introverts can make the best film editors? The long hours of working, the painstaking hours of viewing footages in dark rooms—these are just some of the tedious works of film editors and these are not something an extrovert would want to do because they are highly solitary. More than some of the technical things that they focus on such as the motion effects, filter and transition effects, color correction, and titles, they are also responsible for shaping the emotional content of a scene. 

Film editor of The Hunger Games and The Revenant, Stephen Mirrione, once said that film editors are alchemists who rely on instinct and feeling, for they would place themselves in the shoes of their audience. Moreover, their power transcends the corner of those dark rooms for they can also request for more additional shots from the director should the editor find a discrepancy in the element of continuity in the filmed shots.

    "This is a nice site that I referred to. I do not think that this is the BEST option for someone to use, especially if they cannot afford buying. For a beginner, this may be more advanced but not sure. I think using a free editing system to try out video editing would be more beneficial."

    "This is probably the best Video Enhancing and editing program for apple, or for any operating system, really. I'd say its core feature is just how fast it is, and it's also extremely simple to use. I'd recommend it if you've got an apple device."

    "I needed the best Video Enhancing and Fixing tool. Elmedia Player was something I found, and it has been great to play videos, but maybe not the best in enhancing them the way I wanted."

    "Windows Movie Maker 2016 is great for making professional looking movies. Those amateur videos saved on your phone can be transformed with this software to be a cool looking movie. It works with WIN 7, 8 and 10, so you shouldn't have any issues running it on your PC. I especially like that even though it's not made by Microsoft, they do have a link to it on their official page.
