    is there any software that lets me filter out blues or add reds in an
    avi file?

    I need it because as you know avi videos taken with compact photo
    camera are rich in blues and lack reds

    Please let me know if you know any software that can do that

    You can convert it to jpegs with something like RAD Video Tools or
    VirtualDub then use irfanview to make batch adjustments & convert back
    to avi.

    Can't VirtualDub do the colour correction as well? I'm not a user, but I
    seem to recall it had the ability to do this.

    You can use IrfanView to extract stills from a video - but as far as I can
    tell, there's no way to combine them back into a video, which is a shame.

    Yep, VirtualDub has a built-in HSV (Hue/Saturation/Value) filter and you
    can install additional colour correction filters as well - such as
    Donald Graft's RGB filter:

  5. The above is the advice of an inexperienced troll who does nothing more than
    spread misinformation to usenet because it has nothing better to do and likes to
    think it knows something about photography. Ignore it and all its posts.

    Now for even better advice.

    There are hundreds of plugins for VirtualDub that will do exactly what you want.
    Every plugin and editing tool that you have for your favorite photo editor are
    also available for editing video frames.WITHOUT having to disassemble the video
    into single frames. (What an amazingly stupid idea that is, just when you
    thought you've read them all.) Not all VirtualDub plugins are hosted at the main
    site, search for them. Some plugins for free VirtualDub do more than any of the
    best video editing programs sold today.

    For example, if you have a digicam without IS (image stabilization) look for a
    plugin for VirtualDub called "Deshaker". It gives you IS for your videos.

    "LogoAway" is a fun one too.

    If only there was a usenet "TrollAway" plugin for Usenet so you could
    automatically filter out the idiots that continually spew their misinformation.

    Wow, you made a special name just for me in this thread. I figured in there wouldn't be hardly any replies to a video
    question so I offered what little I knew. Thanks to others for clarifying.

    Nice to know all those plugins exist!

    PS Most newsreaders have filters and I always use my real name.
