PAL gives you 20% more pixels to work with. Also, it's 4:2:0 color sampling may or may not provide superior uprezzing. I would suspect that it might, but without a comparable PAL clip to test with, there's no way to know for sure.

But with a PAL camera you also give up the 24P frame rate (although 25P is not far off) and you also lose the 30P frame rate for slow motion.

If you're in PAL territory, sure, try it -- but I wouldn't get a PAL camera in NTSC territory just for this...

Hey Barry, in your opinion, would 1920x1080 be way too much uprez using S-Spline with the DVX100?

I dunno, let's try it!

here's the clip upsampled to 1920 x 1080, then saved out as a MainConcept MPG2 from Vegas:

Okay, just for grins, here's the JVC upsampled to 1080/30P:

Wow, that's not TOO bad. The image definately shows more degredation, but it doesn't look as bad as I suspected it might. I couldn't play the JVC stuff...but maybe it's because I need to "Save Target As" Let me try....

Yeah, that worked....resolution wise, the JVC uprezzes up to 1080 better then the DVX, but that is to be expected. Thanks Barry!

S-Spline

To be honest with you guys, I don't see the S-Spline doing much in pixel interpolation. Bicubic up sampling in Photoshop & AfterFX are almost the same. I don't think S-Spline worth rendering time for a 5% difference. See http://slav.1accesshost.com/

It's much easier and much faster to do it in AE.

I don't know - when I tested it I got much better results - hardly 5%. Even your test shots, S-Spline looks like it doing noticeably better than bicubic and unsharp mask.

Yes, it's a LITTLE better, but viewing the result even on a large screen results in virtually no difference and the process of processing a large amount of targa files makes it unreasonable in real life situation. So, I guess the answer is it's ok for a test or two...

Well, it probably is like most visual things - it's a "depends" things. It depends on the eye and expectations of the user and the depends also on the file contents and uprez ratio.

If it did not work for some people in some situations, it would not last long as a product.

You guys are doing cool stuff! Any chance of seeing the standard rez DVX footage inserted into that sequence so we can see the "before and after"?
