Sorry to bump my own post... but just hoping that someone has a link or advice..
Thanks again -
I guess this will be my final plea for help with this... Anybody have any advice, links that I haven't seen yet (posted above), or even just a comment?
my comment is that I am in early stages of researching this detail preserving effect and have not seen the links you have posted above. Nice. I did see another post and one of the staff posted a link, maybe same one - never seen it either (yet).
My plans with the effect is for HD material panned and zoomed for SD - to upscale that SD into HD. Some of the HD would not be panned and zoomed and would still have the HD capabilities, but other footage is zoomed 200% (doubled).
So, you are from November I see - you must be a pro by now. Don't worry, not asking for advice on something I have not even tried yet. I am still in the early stages and hope you have progressed with your upscaling abilities.
