I’ve been playing about with the Instant 4K plugin from Red Giant Software. These are some test images from my first few minutes testing out the plugin.
I applied the plugin to some of my video clips of various resolutions. Results can vary depending on what resolution you start with, but at the moment I don’t have a TV or Monitor that can display 4K so I’m unable to see the true results. So I’m using it as a tool to improve the picture a bit and to do some re-framing.Going from SD to 4K does improve the picture but it wont be crystal clear and sharp when viewing at 100%. Noise also gets scaled up to 4K so is more visible even starting with a 1080 picture, using Denoiser II will help with that though.
I create motion graphics and visual effects in after effects.
