I just bought an upgrade license because I had hopes everything will be better and faster. First, the good thing: 3.1.2 utilizes cuda cores of my 3090.
Now the downsides:
- Since 3.x this is called Video AI, the ‘Enhance’ not only got removed from the name but also from the models IMO?! for example I uspcale old 4-5K VR footage to 7-8K with VEAI but I get no enhancement at all from v3. In 2.6.4 I mainly used artemis if quality was bad, proteus if quality was better but for the versions I used Artemis v12 and proteus v2 since v13/v3 added some artefacts on the skin.
Now with v3 it feels even worse! No visible enhancement at all, sorry but either I dont got a major point since the change or it really doesnt enhance at all. when I pull proteus sharpening up more artefacts show up immediatly.
No option for older models to choose in v3 anymore?
timeline became more laggy
previews now have to render some time? no more possibility to set x frames as preview goal?!
I will test some more and I already missed 3.0 and hoped first problems will be fixed with 3.1 but so far I dont see why I payed 120 bucks for an upgrade, sorry guys but the flashy GUI with reduced options to me is a downgrade so far, utilization does not make this up since CPU is still bottlneck for me (5900x)
I bought a couple of days ago. If Im not satisifed with this upgrade will I be eligible for money back?
