    Try using the sharpness filter in the video filters section.

      I'm not sure I understand your expression "gain up the footage." My best guess is that you wish to compensate for underexposure. If that's so, I'd suggest you begin by applying the YUV Curve filter and adjust the Y component by dragging it North West in about the center of the line. To avoid shadow wash out you may need to pin the South West segment of the line at the first grid line intersection.

        I am also confused, but if it is as Fred suggested, apply a Screen filter that is in the Effects palette, Keyers > Blend > Screen.

        Copy the clip in question, place it on a track above the original clip, place the screen filter on the top clip and then adjust the opacity of that top clip. Pretty amazing.

          Yes! this works for light or dark footage... the trick is to adjust the brightness in the lower track and use the unchanged footage in the "Screen" from above to preserve the highlights or black levels.

          To get the most out of under/over exposed footage I like to use the "Screen" Key.
          I'm always surprised by this trick...

          With a clip on the Timeline...
          Ctrl+Drag the same clip to a higher track to make a copy
          Disable the upper track
          Apply Color Balance or YVU to the lower track to darken/lighten the clip
          Enable the upper track
          Apply the "Screen" Key to the upper track
          Adjust the Key Mixer Rubberbands in the upper track for effect.

          Highlights/black should be preserved despite adjusting the original clip.

            Developers

            I hope edius developers also read this forum because it would be a lot faster to be able to use an "ajust gain" filter (+ or - 3, 6, etc Db).

            I am facing the same problem regjo.

            I will start playing with the ideas i read here, but it will take a lot more of work and hdd space (because i have to use multicam when the colors/light are corrected)

            Thanks,
            Rob
