VideoCleaner is an unique program that is designed to help law enforcement personnel perform forensic duties although it is available for anyone interested in using it. The video enhancement software processes digital images and almost all video formats, including proprietary ones.
Includes a rather chunky, but still approachable GUI
Although quick and straightforward, you should bear in mind that the application also installs AviSynth and FFDshow on your computer. Since it relies on the first program, the application can be accessed via the AvsP app that serves as its interface.
Speaking of UI, the program comes in a rather rugged and arguably confusing package that may deter some of the users with less experience. Nevertheless, you should bear in mind that the program includes detailed guides, instructions and even messages on how to get around or what to do next that you can preview in the dedicated log section.
Packs several advanced tools for making images clearer
Despite its not-so-friendly interface, you will be happy to learn that the program includes several impressive functions. After all, let us not forget that the idea behind the app is to help you make various details in videos and pictures more evident.
Among the circumstances when the tool can come in handy, you can count detecting fast moving objects, lighten or darken scenes, correct fuzzy videos, expand video details, remove artifacts located randomly in the video frame or clean an image to view a license plate, just to name a few.
On the other hand, it is worth mentioning that the program may not be the best choice for processing files with noisy audio or display motion smearing where primary and adjacent details blend.
An advanced tool that can help process potential evidence files
While initially developed for law enforcement departments solely, VideoCleaner has become available to the wide public as a transparent open source tool. Whether you are trying to analyze fuzzy live footage or blurry snapshots captured by your surveillance cameras, the program can lend you a hand.
