The viewing experience depends on a number of factors, including resolution, effects, and format. If you have a video that needs to be enhanced, there are some great tools available for both Mac and Windows that you can use. In this article, let’s review some of the best video enhancers available at the moment.

 

1. Video Enhancer

 

This is one of the most popular videos enhancers out there. It performs a lot of useful functions, including increase of resolution, denoising, color correction, visual effects, deinterlacing, deblocking, and others. They turn Video Enhancer into a powerful tool for flexible video editing that can meet needs of the users.

 

When launched for the first time, the app will offer you multiple initial options of processing videos, such as deinterlacing and denoising (apparently, there are among the most popular video improvements). To take advantage of an extended range of features, you will need to download VirtualBub Filter Pack (it contains over 220 filters!)

 

The reason why the developer decided not to include this pack in the setup is unknown but the download won’t take a lot of time. After that, you will be able to produce better results. Users of Video Enhancer say that it takes a little bit of practice to understand every filter available in the app because all of them have a different effect on the video, so take your time and practice.

 

Video Enhancer can improve digital videos to the best possible resolutions, such as 720p and 1080p, but pay attention if you wish to create different versions of your video to rename the files because the app is known for overwriting them each time.

 

Advantages of Video Enhancer

 

  • Variety of filters

  • User-friendly interface

  • Easy to use

 

2. Adobe Premiere

 

Adobe is a known name is the world of digital technologies, so it is good news that it released a video improvement app worth our attention. According to the company, Premiere Pro is the fastest and most efficient video editor able to produce visually stunning videos and images, and we really cannot disagree.

 

It has many amazing features that will be helpful for both amateurs and professionals. For example, Premiere Pro allows to edit any video format, from virtual reality to 8k footage in native format or some other one. A built-in Lumetri Color is a tool that provides many creative ways to work with colors and presets to ensure that the video has natural stunning colors.

 

For teams and enterprise users, the company offers collaboration options that allow to work on shared sequences across various products of Adobe. That’s why Premiere is often used in companies like professional writing services because the latter require multiple users to collaborate on editing projects.

 

We recommend using Adobe Premiere because it is a proven name in the industry that has reliable options for improving videos. Oh, one more thing: it has a Photoshop feature, so it you are familiar with it, editing on Premiere will be much easier. Start a free trial to see what it can offer for you.

Overall, the tool is a decent competitor for Adobe Premiere and should be tried if you value functionality and efficiency of video enhancer apps.
