2 Correct color with your preference

Double click the target video on the timeline and the video editing window will pop up. On the left hand there are four parameters available for changing:

Saturation: This setting represents the amount of gray in proportion to the hue. You can adjust it to make colors of the entire video image look more saturated or inconspicuous.

Brightness: You can change this setting to customize the overall lightness or darkness of your video image.

Contrast: Control the difference in color and brightness in different parts of the video image by adjusting this setting.

Hue: Hue is the color reflected from or transmitted through an object. Simply change this setting to see the result.

To change the color correction settings, just direct your mouse cursor to the indicator, left click it and move it to the left or right along the slider. When releasing the mouse button, the respective value will be set. You can immediately see the result in the Preview Window. If don't like the result, you can always click Undo to discard the changes. It’s also possible to cancel all the changes by clicking the Reset button.

3 Preview and save your new video

Now you've finished correcting the video color? Press Play and go over the whole video though the previewing window. If you are completely happy with the result, hit “Create” to export your video. You can choose to save the new videos in different formats under Format tab. If you want to play the edit file on portable devices like iPhone, iPad, iPhone, Kindle Fire, PSP, Xbox, etc., just go to the “Devices” tab and select the configured preset for the specific model. You can also the video on YouTube or Facebook directly or burn it to DVD for better preservation.

Not sure where else to ask this, but what happened to the color of the animations? For example, I use the Pixel Party opener and used to be able to manipulate the color quite a bit with the sliders, but now all I can get are variations of pink. Is there a way to get the old color change back? Or to modify the colors of the animations?
