i will tell you how i made my settings in my thread in this forum.
i got a resolution pattern in youtube that shows white background and horizontal and vertical lines, a test pattern not a picture of something.
then i got a low resolution version in 640 i think, i think it was 640 it was really low resolution. i upscaled it to 1080p.
then i went into mode = proteus - fine tune/enhance
i set all the and parameters = manual
then i set all the sliders to the far left so its off.
the video clip is only 20 seconds long so processing it takes no time.
starting with the bottom slider, anti aliasing/deblur, i set this to 0, then increments it by 10 till i got to 100 then i took screen shots using mpc player from k lite codec pack.
its all one picture so i just open the video, file take screenshot, save to folder then compare all ten pictures to find the best looking one.
then i kept that settings and went to the next slider above that, dehalo, this one is important when its off you might see halos around the bars on the image, then you set the dehalo higher until the halos disappear around the bars.
you will need to readjust this as you make newer adjustments to the image on the other sliders this one is critical to readjust for when you adjust a slider and it makes halos appear around the bars and where the bars intersect.
then each time you set a slider you go to the next slider keeping the settings from the other sliders and adjusting dehalo accordingly.
i would have liked to have a option i scroll through the video take a timestamp and each time in adjust the video and encode it when i close topaz labs sw then reopen it i can go back to the same timestamp of the video to make comparing screenshots from previous videos easier. but some frames are ugly, so adjusting to these ugly frames wont work regardless of your settings it better to use a resolution pattern.
heres my settings btw😁
ai model = proteus - fine tune/enhance
parameters = manual
revert compression = 10
recover details = 20
sharpen = 10
reduce noise = 50
dehalo = 100

add noise = 0
