Next, it’s time to adjust the brightness of your video. Click the clip on the video canvas and the editing panel will open on the lefthand side. Click “advanced” to reveal the advanced editing options. Scroll down to “Filter Effects” and click “Add”. Open the dropdown menu to adjust the brightness of your video. Simply drag the slider to the left to darken the video or to the right to make it brighter.

Once you are happy with the new brightness of your video, it’s time to preview your video.
