Upscaling Videos


Hi everyone, been a long time since i have had to post in here, but i need a bit of help with the following issue, which is a subject that i may have asked about many years ago but i can't recall what the result was.

Ok so i have some old 720p AVC MP4 Files that i would like to upscale to 1080p, so i made a profile with 1920x1080 as the output resolution, but all it did was output back to exactly the same file.

I tried several files without luck, then i changed the encoder from Intelligent to Force encoding, but still got the same result.

I was certain that VRD could do this, maybe i was wrong, but if it can, could someone please let me know what settings i need to apply in my profile.

Sorry, I realized you are talking Pro. I'm non Pro...

--------------------------------This is what I did "non Pro"...------------------

I changed "Output codec:" to H264.
"output mode:" to "Force Recode".
"Video" - "Resolution:" from "SAS" to 1920x1080
------(which only shows up in "Force Recode" mode)-----

Hit "save" and got 1080p out the other side.

I've been using "Topaz video AI" to enhance fuzzy 360p/480 videos
that I was considering for deletion.
It was a WOW moment...I'm keeping them now!
It moves them up to lower end "ok" dvd video level instead of fuzzy garbage.

Odd thing I've noticed is that some of my TMPGEnc VMWorks7 video filters
have no effect on the new video. "contour" guessing that what ever it works on is
gone from the video file. (video denoise also does nothing)...guess there is no noise.

Still working out to VMWorks7 first or to AI the file first.
My Vega 56 videocard processes at 10 fps. 5950xCPU gets 2 fps. I can see no difference.

Thanks JMC, yeah my bad on this one, i recall now that i was told how to do this several years ago, i just made 1 fatal error.

I just selected one of my already created presets, which was 1920x1080 AVC H264 Intelligent encode, and all i did was change the preset to Force Recode, but i forgot that changing to Force Recode reverts the Resolution back to SAS, so i manually set the resolution from the drop down list, and saved the output.
