I badly need help.

I got DV video camera(Mini DV) ,(old style but like tape) I recorded outdoor videos at night.

At the back there were lights which appeared in the video in front of public from top to bottom.(vertical). I wonder if there is any solution to remove that light?

Any advice or suggestion will be appreciated.

Thank you

Probably not without interfering with the A/V continuity, or at great expense to correct in post via rotoscoping.

Without seeing your footage, offhand I'd say you could try masking them out if your editing software will allow or if you have After Effects. You'll still may run into continuity issues like Earl mentioned.
