If you're looking for something like you'd see on CSI, it simply doesn't exist. The problem is the closer you zoom, the less data you have to work with. Each image is only made up of a limied number of individual colored pixels. While you might be able to play with contrast and sharpening with an image editing program like Photoshop, but you can't magically create more data (like you would get from a higher res camera).

i'm not looking for magic :unsure:
i'm looking for like a free version of photoshop with a license that doesn't expire, i was hoping someone here has some suggestions.

and its for video dont want to do frame by frame editing :)

I don't know of any free video editing tools that would give you the enhancement options you want. Maybe someone else will. However, you could do a screencapture and then use an photo editing program. Windows Live Photo Gallery allows you to adjust detail, contrast, reduce noise, etc.
