editing video

Not sure if this is the right area but have a question. I recorded a 2 minute video clip. Some of the clip is a little blurry. Is there software out there that can clear this up some if not all? thanks for the help.

Realistically, no. You can't get something that isn't there. About all you can do is add noise or grain to give the appearance of detail, but in no way will this look like sharp footage.

You can't really fix this up, although you can fake extra focus/sharpness to a degree.

Try an unsharp mask or gaussian sharpen filter. Your editing program should have either one of these fitlers. What editor are you using by the wya?

Just an idea: make it look like you've done it in purpose. Zoom in/out, play with colors, rasterize, solarize, etc. It could save your day...
