My Anti-virus says there is Trojan.Win32.Stantinko.gen in your avformat-60.dll
certainly a false positive , mine didn’t, and if i remember well, VideoAi is developped on a Mac.
which antivirus do you use ?
you use kapersky right ?
i don’t know in which part of the world you’re living, but my suggestion would be : stop using Kapersky.

Yeah I try to do my research and I believe it is a false positive.
It is Kaspersky that seems to be the problem. I am using it because my company has a corporate license.

If in doubt virustotal dot com is a good sanity check (not sure if linking is allowed here)
yep, easy to test , on virustotal or others online virus scanner, kapersky is the only one which tell it’s a virus among 40 antivirus and antitrojan softwares.
Not sure what that is supposed to mean.
I tried the same movie with duplicate frames I uploaded last version, and there’s still the slight motion regression instead of frame replacement. This is with the Apollo model. Chronos Slomo, does better, but still counts the duplicate frames as part of the motion, so it slows down more than it should, for each duplicate frame.
Going to try converting to PNG first and then running Apollo, but there shouldn’t be a difference. (I’ll force the duplicate frames to be exact duplicates, just for fun and run it again.)
Even with setting rdt to 0.2—the maximum value allowed and double the amount that can be set in the GUI—it does not replace duplicate frames with correct motion.
Just upgraded to v3.1.8, and now constantly getting “unknown error” message upon export. red ‘x’ in the box. can’t use the program at all for now.

See this post for a solution, next time don’t forget to search for your issue first …
Yea it’s kinda weird. There’s something fishy going on. I think either Topaz’ OpenVino runtime is too old, or the Intel driver broke Topaz… :((
Another thing that worked for me was just to replace the OpenVino runtime in Topaz photo/video AI by:
Download the archive from:
Intel® Distribution of OpenVINO™ Toolkit
Copy the files from runtime/bin/intel64/Release into the root directory of Topaz. (e.g.: C:\Program Files\Topaz Photo AI)
It should ask you to confirm whether or not you’d like to r…

Still waiting to fix Apollo’s block and color cast.
Enabling Grain now forces Enhancement on. I could be remembering incorrectly but I don’t recall that being the case previously. Using TVAI on Windows 11.
Apollo+Artemis, it’s twice as slow to work! ((
Hi - was that only on the first run after updating the app? What GPU and CPU does your computer have?
Hi Todd - this is intentional. Enhancement needs to be on when Grain is enabled since v3.1.0.
