I will never again choose YES to this question, the last time it has deleted all the models so everything had to be redownloaded . How on hell the upscale models that haven’t been updated for more than 1 year now are deleted ??
Another comparison of Nvidia Video Super Sampling (on my RTX 3080Ti). I run a 1080P screen and that’s the target for my upscales, removing blockiness and blur is usually my higher priority. Uh, very unscientific test. I’m literally using the snipping tool for capture which is another small layer of compression. But, best case, this is what you can expect for some content.

If you remove the sharpening filter from NVSS it looks worse than Topaz AI (imo), but both are better than the original which is the whole point. The biggest positive is that the MPC-BE player with NVSS+sharpen is literally real time, and well, Topaz AI isn’t (and doesn’t support livestreams)
I would never actually do it, but my system can often upscale from DVD to FHD with the Proteus model faster than playback speed. Technically, I could live stream it at that speed. (Though, last time I tried the NVENC output, it slowed things down a lot—And that’s the only encoder that makes sense for live streaming.)
Anyway, just a thought.
Yeah that’s the one. Anyone looking to download this needs to install the MPC-BE program from another download site (I forgot… lol), install it, then run the matching CMD script. For shaders, it’s in one of the dropdown menus regarding ‘Play/playback’, and that brings you to a confusing small window where you should select “DX11” from ‘DX9’ (click it), then click the weird small bar next to that to show the list of shaders (ie, colorspace/color range adjustors, various sharpening), then click on the Post-Process area, and click ‘Add’ and okay/save it.
If it all works (with the Nvidia control panel → Video settings → Video Super Resolution set to 2 or 4) you should see a decent increase in GPU power and usage when running. At least now people with RTX 3000, 4000 and 2000 (in a few months apparently) can get upscaling via video player if they don’t need stabalization or temporal upscaling, or like 4K super fancy tweaked stuff.
Now the next question is… how do you rig this up to Youtube downloader and twitch streams if you want further processing on the NV super sampling
Thanks. Not sure how you do streaming to upload it to streaming in real time, but when it comes to watching streaming, does MPC-BE offer online streaming using the player? I think it does, doesn’t it? Maybe that can work.
I don’t use all models right now, but I want them to be saved from me. If I downloaded them, then all programs downloaded during the update are deleted and all are automatically updated. Do I need to download them again after each update?
Some of us (me included) have gone back to 2.6.4 for exactly this reason! You know it makes sense - but in the absence of an explanation from them, Topaz seem to have their priorities wrong. Tip: Get the basics right, THEN work on the bells and whistles.
