Extracting a license plate from a dark video [How to]

This is the first video tutorial of a series. It has been ripped and then subtitled directly without any editing, so it shows Amped Five work flow on real time.

The video is showing a very dark and shaking sequence of a license plate. The steps illustrated are:

  1. loading the video (Video Loader filter)
  2. increasing the brightness and contrast (Curves filter)
  3. stabilizing the video (Stabilization filter)
  4. integrating the enhanced and stabilized frames (Frame Averaging filter)
