I'm not quite sure how to go about polishing up B&W footage. Is there anything you can do in visionlab to make the footage more "cinematic"? I'm guessing the only settings I will be adjusting are contrast and brightness... anything else?

Using levels can offer more control, as it separates the lows, mids and highs and allows you to adjust each individually.
