In the late October release of After Effects, version 12.1 one of the new features is called Detail Preserving Upscale. Now the title of this feature is pretty self-explanitory. You can upscale your footage, while preserving detail. The purpose is to scale SD to HD or HD to larger resolutions. Let’s take a look and see how it works.
Well we don’t typically demo other products on the site, but I thought this preset from Prolost was so helpful it was worth it to spread the word. Plus, they are selling it for crazy cheap so I wanted to do my part to put out a good word.
Watch the video to see a demo of the product, and at the end we’ll even give out a promo code to take it from the normal price of $3, down to $2! Not too shabby!
A lot of films, TV shows, and commercials use After Effects as their go-to motion graphics, visual effects, and compositing platform. In some workdlows, its okay to render your final out of After Effects, but personally I find that workflow too limiting. After all, how often is an edit really “locked” when your client, producer, director, etc. say that it is? And to start tweaking an editor or worse have to play back edit changes from After Effects, isn’t ideal to say the least.
