How to enhance video quality

  1. Start a video project
    Open Canva to choose a video template or begin from scratch. Use clips from our stock video library or upload them from your gallery. MP4, MOV, MKV, WEBM, and MPEG file formats are supported.
  2. Edit your videos
    Select the clips you need and do some easy and quick fixes to them. Merge two videos, crop your clips, or click the Speaker icon to adjust the existing audio. Trim your videos also to refine the frames you’ll enhance later on.
  3. Enhance your clips
    Experiment with the slider for every setting and see the effect simultaneously. Control how much brightness, contrast, saturation, or blur goes in your clip. Or add shadows, highlights, or a different tint. Match changes to a vibe you want your audience to feel, whether positive with vibrant colors and vivid imagery or negative with muted tones and duller textures.
  4. Personalize each frame
    Consistency is a key factor in looking professional. Pair your videos with design elements that are complementary and value-adding. You can embellish each frame with photos, texts, fonts, and transitions and add music to videos from our library.
  5. Download and share
    Once you’re happy with your project, download it as a high-quality MP4 video. You can also directly share your video on social media or queue it on your content calendar effortlessly.

Frequently Asked Questions

Video enhancement is not a one-size-fits-all process, so it’s essential to pinpoint what’s wrong with a video to find the right solution. You aim to get the clearest, sharpest resolution possible for your clip or evoke a visual message. Tinker with the slider on some of these video properties:
  • Brightness controls the bright/white parts of the image.
  • Contrast adjusts the dark/black parts of the image.
  • Saturation sets the vibrancy of the colors.
  • Tint gives the video a hue of the selected color.

    Yes, but there are limitations. Adjust brightness, contrast, and saturation to improve dark and dull videos. You can also modify its vibrance (colors), highlights (white points), or shadows (dark points) to see how it registers onscreen. Some cases like excessive blurry spots, pixelation, and shakiness might need high-grade video enhancers or even a reshoot. Always remember to film with the right equipment to get high-quality raw footage. Luckily, most modern smartphones take good-quality videos!

    First and foremost, it is to improve the visual appearance of the video whenever there is poor lighting, dull colors, noise, grain, or loss of details. But also, video enhancement is a narrative device in the creative world. Clever use of colors, lights, and contrast can transform a video and how the audience watches it. Even simple changes can have a significant impact on the final output. Our video editor lets you enhance your videos online for free with beginner-friendly sliders that simultaneously preview the effect on your clips.
