Improve Video Quality | How to Fix a Blurry Video in VideoProc [2020]

Q: "Can someone tell me how to make the video less blurry and less shaky?"

A: VideoProc helps remove blur from video within three steps. See the following guide on how to clean up blurry videos in VideoProc.

Step 1: Apply "Sharpen" filter.

Step 2: Adjust "contrast" and "brightness" values.

Step 3: Encode video in MP4 H.264.

It is hard to say why your video gets blurry, shaky or distorted. But whatever the cause, there is no doubt that you need to take steps to remove blur and improve video quality, if you want to upload it online for others or just saving it for yourself. Your footage might get blurry if the camera is unstable or moves too fast. Video becomes fuzzy and pixelated after zooming in and upscaling. When ISO is set too high, plus fast shutter speed, your night recordings become grainy. Incorrect video encoding settings also make video blurry and distorted when uploading. But all those video quality issues can be fixed with VideoProc.
