Is there a way to lighten movies?

Does anyone know of a way to lighten a short movie from a digital camera?
They always come out so dark.

Windows Movie Maker has a brightness effect, among others. Add the clip to the timeline, and on step 2 click on "view video efects" and drag the effect to the timeline clip.

Ok I somehow exported it as AVI file and am able to open it now. I think its still too dark but it's a bit better.

Thanks so much

WMM cuts the clip in several short parts, make sure you have the whole clip on the storyboard, might be several parts..

Yeah it is. There's 5 clips there and on the first one it only seems to brighten part of it.

AVIs are big, so maybe try to save it as a WMV before applying effects, and then re-import it (as a WMV). If it's still too dark, maybe try to apply brightness again (effects can be applied more than once by dragging/dropping them multple times).
