I am a novice user of Topaz Video AI and not especially an experienced video editor. I make videos of places we visit and upload them to YouTube so we, and family/friends, can watch them at leisure.
I have some Standard Definition video which was shot about 25 years ago. Some of it is in 4:3 format and some of it is in 16:9 format. Some of the video is from a tour of Syria visiting places that were destroyed by ISIS and I would like to improve that video if I can. I realise there will be limitations but any improvement will hopefully be better. So my questions are:
Should I just try to upscale to HD? I assume that trying to go further (e.g. to 4K) would not be worth it.
Which AI model should I use? The default Proteus?
Should I change any of the settings or just use the auto ones?
Should I stick to the Proteus 422 HQ encoder (which produces .mov files, not the most useful) or use one of the others (e.g. H264 High NVIDIA) to produce a ,.mp4 file?
Thanks in advance for any help.
