Very useful printed out to show staff! Thanks


Would love to see a test going from interlaced DV, or even HDV, to 4K.

I have used Topaz to deinterlace and uprez mini DV to 1080p 29.97 and it’s pretty good. haven’t tried 4k yet. I mean DV is DV but with some color correction after It looks pretty good..


What About the Video2x project (Waiffu2x) or Anime2x with vulcan NNUE for those without strong video cards? been trying to run a docker version in cloud on google colab. Topaz Labs was extremely slow for me and doesn’t add much detail.


Am I the only one who thinks that it looks better before upscale? 4K looks kind of blurry on all of the samples. Though Topaz is the least blurry 🙂


Nice article. You were using NVidia GPU for all this right? Would like to know now, with Radeon and Microsoft’ “TensorFlow-DirectML” claming AMD RDNA 2 GPUs have up to 4.4x performance gain. I would be interested to know if this is true because NVidia’s GPUs still scalped more than Radeon’s. TIA.


Yikes, pixop looks like a sharpen mask. I took your example and plopped it into GIMP and sure enough. Pixop is no better than a standard sharpen mask.
