From my point of view it would be nice if somebody on the kdenlive project would create a. For changing the gain of the clip you have to modify we have different approaches: You remove selected material from a track in the timeline and automatically close the gap.

Another feature which could improve the management of the timeline is the option to enable and disable clips so you can test different situations without move or delete them This feature is present in all professional video editor program.

I know that this approach is not the fastest way but the old Virtualdub on Wine or Avidemux are used for solving some situations even in professional workflows sometimes Then in professional workflows for complex effects are always used compositing programs as Autodesk Flame, The Foundry Nuke or Adobe After Effects. Usually in video and graphic editor programs levels and curves filters work on all the 3 channels plus luma so you can fine tune the image colors, light and contrast.
