Bonus Tip 1: How to Fix a Blurry Video in iMovie
If you want to learn how to make a blurry video clear on iPhone or Mac, iMovie is definitely an option to go. It does not provide a tool that makes blurry videos clearer in one click. The workable method for iMovie users is to sharpen blurry videos by increasing the contrast.
Step 1: Create a new project and import your video to iMovie. Then drag and drop the video to the timeline.
Step 2: Click the color correction button above the preview window. Drag the half-moon sliders in the multislider control to increase the contrast.
Step 3: You can adjust shadows, brightness, highlights, and saturation along with the sharpness adjustment to make your video look more natural.
Step 4: Save and export the fixed video.
Note: It is impossible to fix the blurry video in a perfect manner. The lower contrast cannot sharpen a blurry video, while the higher contrast will increase unwanted noise to your footage. The best way is to keep trying and finding a proper contrast to make the video clear as much as possible.
