I think your aim, 1080P is too high. VHS effectively is around 240 - 280 vertical resolution. Even 720 may be very high already.
Using SSuite 12.6.1 you still can't make up what isn't there to start with. You can somewhat limit the damage, but that is all.
I would start out with Instant 4K, with the quality setting to 20+, then Denoiser 2 or alternatively Neat Video, and finally Frames. You may skip Frames altogether by exporting with the same framerate as your source material, to keep quality loss to the minimum.
Thanks, I figure that VHS wont look great on 1080, but these changes might improve the video a bit.
I see you mentioned not running frames. Wouldnt deinterlacing make the video look better? I figure as I would play it as 1080p, the use of frames would improve the image. Guidance is appreciated.
Changing frame rates, be it from 29.97i to 29.97p or even 24p requires further changes to the output file from the source material. The fewer changes you make, be better the end result. On playing the end results, almost any TV does a better job of changing frame rates than does PR. TV's have dedicated hardware for that job, so use that.
Thanks for the prompt and concise reply. It was extremely helpful.
