2 Improve video quality

After importing all the media files to the program, drag and drop them to the respective tracks of the timeline. Enter “Edit” with right-click on the media clip you need to enhance. There’re several basic settings such as rotate, crop, speed and adjust. Here you can easily change the contrast, saturation, brightness and hue. Audio edit is easier. Click Audio column and set options as you like. Here you can adjust output volume, fade in, fade out and pitch.

During this process, you can watch the real-time effect in the preview window. If the adjustment is sufficient, just click "Return" in the lower part of the window to go back to the main interface.

this really helped but i am having trouble getting to properties window, Is there a chance you could tell me how?
I figured it out when you import your videos right click on the video you are working on, when you right click go to properties and check if your videos 1920x1080 check your, fps, and your kbps. Work on your videos on the timeline even if they come out blurry. When you finish click on export create videos, format WMV click on settings, and make sure all the stuff on properties matches like yor fps, kbps, 1920x1080. and download it to your computer and it should come out good! Then you can upload to youtube ! Hope that helped.
