edit mp4 file

windows 7

using quicktime, can I add darkness to existing video

Black frames making it look as though lights are getting turned off

would instant darkness look real or is there a fraction of second where light comes/disappears

Can I do this on quicktime pro

You can use VLC to change the darkness in a video.
VLC adjust video
Is this for windows or Mac?
With no background I really cant understand what your trying to achieve
refs to>Black frames making it look as though lights are getting turned off?? what does this mean please.
refs to>would instant darkness look real or is there a fraction of second where light comes/disappears?? well if you adjust the video it will be the entire video not just one frame?
What is the video about outdoors?

Hey Michael-Best
did you know you can edit your comment so long as no one else as posted a comment after yours.
Click on the gear and edit
if you have two comments copy one then delete that comment and edit the previous.
I've commented now so you cant edit your last now
cheers

Black frames do you mean borders? If so that is usually the video scale used like 4.3 or 16.9 wide screen
To edit it in QT you need Quick time pro

@ Merete
"did you know you can edit your comment so long as no one else as posted a comment after yours"

yes, I do, but so many of my past comments have been deleted (thus wasting my time and effort to help) in there entirety rather than being edited to not include so called "blind links" or "copy paste" content even when the link was was not blind (=no words of my own to describe the links content) and copy paste is not plagiarism if the author and source link are given credit.
I have even re-worded into my own words information from googled information that was both politically correct and not a plagiarism, only to have it deleted by EE as stated by the moderator as being mostly copy past which is not acceptable to EE plagiarism rules.
Until the unfair deletion of my comments have been addressed.
I still take care to post a solution in my own words only and then provide a link in a second post to ensure that the question asker can obtain the information that I have provided.

Maybe I'm interpreting the question wrong, but I think the asker actually wants to splice in extra 'footage' of a dark[ened] room, rather than just adjust the brightness/contrast of existing images.

all answers led to darkness which is what I wanted.
Extra frames or changing my existing frames.

Thanks.
