What are people saying about Video Enhancer

S B How well does this do on, for example, low resolution Youtube videos?

Is it capable of making text in videos more readable?

Thank you!
Jul 30 2011 at 3:07pm Copy Link
Dmitry Popov Result quality depends very much on quality of source video. The super resolution method used in Video Enhancer is based on finding same objects in neighbor frames and combining information about them. So it works best when there is some movement (but not too drastic) and when not too much information is lost due to compression. You can see some examples on its web page, some of them show in-video text becoming more readable. However on highly compressed videos don't expect wonders, there it will be only slighty better than usual resizing methods.

S B Dmitry Popov,

Thank you!

Video Enhancer has many good reviews and is apparently helping others, too.

S B The latest version of Video Enhancer was released just over a year ago and is version 1.9.6.

Is Video Enhancer still under development?

If so, will there soon be a version 2, do you expect it soon, and will upgrades from 1.9.6 be free?

How does Video Enhancer compare to the newest vReveal Premium?

Jan 1 2012 at 10:19am Copy Link
Dmitry Popov Tim,
probably the site was down at that moment, now it's available. Sorry for inconvenience.

S B,
Version 1.9.7 is coming out today and will be available with this promotion. Version 2.0 is in more distant future. Upgrade will be either free or with a major discount.

The main distinctive feature of Video Enhancer is its super resolution video upsizing technology. vReveal 2 had something called "super resolution" but it was really just a denoising method, it didn't change video resolution. As far as I know in the newest vReveal it was dropped and now they don't even pretend vReveal has quality video resize. As for other filters like brightness change, color correction, deinterlacing etc. vReveal has a few effects built-in while Video Enhancer uses over 200 third-party plugins from VirtualDub. In version 1.9.7 choosing, installing and using them is made much easier.

Dmitry Popov David, this is a rare error in a third-party component we use for skinning the UI. Just skip this message, Video Enhancer can work fine without skinengine, it will just look more plain.

David C. Metcalfe Thanks, Dmitry. It looks like an excellent program.
Jan 2 2012 at 8:52am Copy Link
Dmitry Popov Version 1.9.7 has just been released!

Screenshots here can be a bit outdated. The main difference in the new version is video filters selection window, now filters are categorized, it's very easy to see what filters exist (not necessarily installed), see descriptions and install them in one click.

Other changes include smart video compressor recommendation system (calculating proper bitrate for you based on the video in question and video codec), better frame rate handling and some minor improvements in other areas.

Stefan Hauber > Upgrade [to version 2] will be either free or with a major discount.

Since this is already version 1.9.7, why not promise here to make version 2 free for all the today's buyers? I'm sure some people more would buy today with this promise... (Even a 50% upgrade discount when version 2 comes out, would than result in a full price)
Jan 3 2012 at 12:54am Copy Link
Dmitry Popov You are right.

Let's say users who bought version 1.9.6 (a year old) or higher (like today's 1.9.7) will get upgrade to 2.0 for free.

Infognition - Jan 3 2012 at 6:40am Copy Link
Michael R. I like the idea, that to enhance single frames, the neighbor-frames are taken too to enhance quality.

Just played around with the trial-version:

I am wondering, if it is possible to
1) make a snapshot of a single (enhanced) frame, i.e. create a .,bmp/.jpg-file of it?
2) have some basic cut/merge functionality, so instead of converting the whole video, this would allow to encode just a part of it? (If this is not the case, the only possibility to reencode a part of a not-natively-cuttable-video would be to reencode it twice: once with a common video-program to cut out the desired part of the video and than with VideoEnhancer to enhance it. Since each reencoding is not looseless, I suppose reencoding twice would not result in an optimal result)
3) I found interesting filters, like face-recognition/pixelation, etc. I really would like to know if it would be possible to keep only the frames in a video, where faces are found (and even better faces of certain persons are recognized). But I suppose the functionality to decide, if a frame should be kept or thrown away
isbeyond the power of a filter, isn't it?

Are the features(1) and (2) already available (and I just have not found it) and if no, can this functionality be expecxted in a soon coming version?

Thank you...
Jan 3 2012 at 8:15am Copy Link
Dmitry Popov Michael,
good questions!

Unfortunately in current version the whole video file is processed. We're going to add cutting in later versions. Right now the same super resolution engine is available as a VirtualDub plugin (see our site), there you can process desired parts of file and also make single snapshots.

In Video Enhancer one can use lossless video codecs like Huffyuv and Lagarith to keep intermediate results without introducing compression losses.

Yes, the filters here process video frame by frame and do not control frame order or count.
Infognition - Jan 3 2012 at 9:01am Copy Link
Robin Edwards Just testing the trial now. I assume theres no CUDA support or similar (processing with filters seems a little slow for example)? And the preview on the filters doesn't seem to work unless I'm missing something (so the only way to see what a colour adjustment filter is doing is to run the full conversion for instance)
Jan 3 2012 at 10:59am Copy Link
Michael R. Hi Dmitry and thanks for the quick response.

Good to hear that the cuttings are on your todo-list.
Of course I am not familiar with your source-code but I could imagine a implementing a snapshot-functionality for the currently shown frame would be not a big thing. And perhaps a command-line option which would allow to define a start- and end-time for a video (i.e. in a first version without a graphical interface) wouldn't be such a big thing. (A graphical interface and an extended cut/merge functionality would probably be...)

Good to hear there is a VirtualDub-Plugin, which allows these functionalities: So, is this VirtualDub-Plugin-license included in this today's offer?
Jan 3 2012 at 11:08am Copy Link
Dmitry Popov Robin,
you're right, there's no CUDA support now (probably will be added in later versions). The problem with GPU is that CUDA is not supported by many video cards, DirectCompute is not supported by older versions of WIndows, and the simpler shaders API which is supported virtually everywhere is very limited and inflexible to implement our algorithms. We're considering using DirectCompute, at least it's not nVidia-only.

There is a Preview button in the main window of Video Enhancer, one can preview all applied effects there. But preview button in filters settings dialogs is not working, it only works in VirtualDub, the original host for those filters.

actually we tried to add cutting functionality earlier and the main problem is not UI but frame-accurate seeking in arbitrary video file formats. That part didn't work quite well so it is removed for now.

Since both Video Enhancer and the Super Resolution VirtualDub plugin include the same upsizing engine (except that VDub plugin is RGB only while Video Enhancer contains two versions: for RGB and for YV12 colorspaces, the latter works faster), one usually needs only one of these products. Technically discount link here only works with Video Enhancer but if one buys a VE license here today he/she can get a free license for the VirtualDub plugin, just email us.

Hitman I saw many movies in which police had the tech to "zoom in" certain frame from surveillance camera, and details of certain object of interest, like the watch worn by a person being monitored, could be magically retrieved. Is this complete fiction? I can imagine that by building a knowledge base of common objects, details can be ADDED as assumptions, but for particular info that is unlikely to be collected as public data, this seems like total magic. Could Mr. Popov comment on this?

J S I did some web searching and this Video Enhancer seems to be 'the business', so after hours of trawling the net, i decided to make my purchase certain I'd found the program to handle my needs.

I was filling out my order when FireFox closed for no obvious reason but then Windows shut down too and it has taken me a few days to get the rotten computer back up and going again.

Sadly no that I'm up and working again the discount coupon url has expired and I suppose I'll have to wait until next time it's offered (hopefully it will be offered again).

Catherine McClarey I imagine that, if I were to use this with PC game capture video, I'd definitely want to use this with the original raw AVI files for best results. I wonder, though, if the resulting files (after going through Video Enhancer) would be small enough to upload to YouTube in a reasonable amount of time? (Thus far, I've been converting everything to FLV before uploading, which gets the file sizes down to no more than approx. 50MB. I'd consider uploading something as large as 100MB, though, if the quality was improved over what I currently produce.)
May 31 2012 at 4:21am Copy Link
Dmitry Popov vaga vaga,
Most video codecs and VirtualDub filters are 32-bit, a 64-bit version will not be able to use them, so there's not much sense in going 64-bit.

Video Enhancer's main feature is its method of increasing video resolution. Youtube videos' resolution is usually not higher than video games' resolution, so in most cases there's no sense in upscaling the video before uploading to youtube. If you're not content with current quality of videos you capture, most probably it's caused by compression. Just increase the bitrate (and/or use a better video codec like x264) and quality will get better.
Infognition - May 31 2012 at 4:34am Copy Link
Catherine McClarey Just downloaded x264 from CNET; will try a test recording to see if it'll work with CamStudio. Thanks for the tip, Dmitry!

Catherine McClarey I downloaded the trial version this morning and experimented with using it on the raw AVI files of Let's Play episodes I've recorded recently. Using the recommended Xvid video codec and reducing the image size of the output video (from 800x600 to 480x360) reduced the file sizes nearly enough to match the little-bitty upload-friendly file sizes (50MB or less) I'd been getting by using Any Video Converter to convert them to FLV first. However, when I opened the Video Enhancer output files, I noticed that I was getting audio, but only a static image for the video. I followed the instructions in the publisher's online FAQ/troubleshooting page for those having problems with Xvid, but it didn't seem to fix the problem. It's such a shame, because the concept of Video Enhancer seems very useful, and I loved how my files were getting compressed.
Jun 2 2012 at 5:19pm Copy Link
Dmitry Popov Florian,
this might happen if audio and video streams in source video have different lengths or there's a problem writing the audio. Try selecting different audio codec (AC-3 ACM is recommended, but MP3 also good).

An update dealing with codec issues is coming soon.

Looks like a codec issue too. You may try following our tutorial on video codecs (see tutorials section on the website) or wait for the next Video Enhancer update coming soon.

But honestly for downsizing videos you don't really need Video Enhancer. Its main feature is video upsizing. There are many converters that will do downsizing and conversion with less hustle.

Val Pope This looks like a real good product but it is not really very much used. Maybe you should also think to a giveaway option, if not for Halloween, because it is tomorrow, maybe for Christmas. Out there are a lot o people with a strong desire to see cam/ts movies and many of them have blogs, and are active in forums and different online communities and this could be a good boom for you as marketing strategy, if your product is as good as it looks. And if it is really really good, they are going to crack this software no matter what, if it isn't already. Give to the people the chance to TNT ("taste, not trial") this software and even the cam/ts movies by desperate viewers, some of them shall buy it, because it is like this: Video Enhancer vs dozens or even hundreds of movies every year, what shall I buy?!?!?

Dmitry Popov Val is right in that Video Enhancer is not well known on the market and that's a pity. I see nice conversion rate among people from developed countries, so probably the product is mature enough. We really need better marketing and more promotions, however I'm not yet convinced in effectiveness of give-away campaigns that Val proposes.

Thanks to everyone for support! I'm glad to say that version 2.0 is in the works right now and is expected in a few months. No more inconveniences with missing preview, less issues with codecs, completely new interface, probably faster processing. Stay tuned!
Infognition - Oct 30 2012 at 11:54pm Copy Link
Dmitry Popov Hopefully in a few months. Currently we're working on a new SR implementation which should be faster and better, this will result in one more update for 1.9, and some time after that version 2.0 with completely different user interface will be released. All these updates will be free for customers of current version.

Also the new SR engine will be available as a new VirtualDub plugin, Adobe After Effects plugin and AviSynth plugin. They are expected to be released between VE 1.9.9 and VE 2.0.

By the way, if one buys a license for VE (s)he can get a license for VirtualDub plugin for free, and vice versa.

Also, it contains a database of those plugins and is able to automatically download and install them in one click, so you don't have to wander around searching, downloading, unpacking and installing them manually as it is done with VirtualDub.

The main feature of Video Enhancer though is its super resolution video upsizing technology which is built-in, it comes with Video Enhancer and doesn't require any plugins.

Dmitry Popov Changes and important news:
since last time Video Enhancer appeared here on BitsDuJour, a new version was released (1.9.9) where our super resolution engine was rewritten to become significantly faster (up to 3x) while using less memory. Also the way Video Enhancer opens files and handles codecs now is different, so many old problems with opening videos should disappear in the new version presented here today.

Note: we have our super resolution engine available in different forms: not only as part of Video Enhancer but also as separate VirtualDub and AviSynth plugins. The latter can be used to watch videos upsized in real time without saving them to a file, see tutorials section on our site. If you buy a license for Video Enhancer you can get those two plugins for free. Just email us and you'll get your registration codes. So today's deal is actually 3-in-1.

Dmitry Popov Louis,
if you're still using 1.9.6 you should upgrade to 1.9.9 right now, it's so much faster, convenient and more stable. The upgrade is free, just install the new version.

Version 2 will have completely different interface with proper preview: all the filter settings changes will be visible right away. It's like Photoshop but for video. As for time frame, this is difficult because unfortunately we constantly suck at fitting into claimed time frames. "Later this year" is the best I can tell.

HKP I cannot recognize the slightest enhancement compared to the original. This product obviously does nothing else than making four or nine pixels out of one. You’ll find squares in the results of the re-rendering if the source video shows such artifacts. The only difference will be a bloated video file.

Nigel Brewster @Steve Martin - I suggest you changing your settings, I've opened it both with Opera and Chrome without problems and I have quite restricted settings. If you like this type of software (I don't have a use for it personally) and you think it's a good deal, buy it and stop worrying.

Your comments regarding Bitsdujour I'm sure are made in jest. I've had a few things off them and they all work fine and no malicious software. Also many companies they have deals with are well known in their fields, I hardly think they would risk their reputation.

We're aware of the Malwarebytes issue. They block the site by its IP address, but this IP is actually shared between several sites most of which we don't own and don't control. Unfortunately nowhere Malwarebytes says what exactly is the problem. I'm sure it's not related to our software.

Ottavio I'd like to know if Video Enhancer and avisynth plugin can reduce height and width of the video. If yes, is quality good as well as increase of height and width?
Jul 12 2015 at 11:16am Copy Link
Dmitry Popov Yes, it can bring resolution to any desired size. If you tell it to increase resolution, then the motion-compensated super resolution method is used. If you tell it to keep original resolution, video is just copied as is. If you tell it to reduce resolution, an intra-frame resampling method is used to resize the frame. In this case result is slightly sharper than with other popular methods but nothing too fancy, no motion compensation is used when you're reducing resolution.
Infognition - Jul 12 2015 at 12:42pm Copy Link
Ottavio In how many computer can I install Video Enhancer and plugins?
Do you plan to add motion compensation in the reduction of the resolution?
Jul 12 2015 at 11:33pm Copy Link
Dmitry Popov You can use your code on any number of your computers. Just don't share it with other people.
There's no sense in using motion compensation for resolution reduction. When you increase resolution you increase number of pixels, for example from 1 megapixel to 2 megapixels, so you need to take somewhere values for additional 1 million pixels. Ordinary methods just interpolate pixels of the frame, but Super Resolution uses both current frame pixels and also pixels from neighbor frames, this way there is more information in result frame than it was before, in this frame in original resolution. When you decrease resolution the result frame has less pixels than original, you just throw away information, you don't need any additional information from neighbor frames.

Amit Hello,
I want to ask a very common question to users of bitsdujour and also to Dmitry Popovask if anyone can very precisely guide me if intel quicksync (latest) is more fast and better in giving the output result quality for video encoding than gpu based encoding.
Also Dmitry Popov, I am very intrested in this software and many other on your site, even if they are not freeware. however I want to ask whether your technique of - movies with real-time super resolution - on site - can work with zoom player. please tell if that is possible acurately.
Jul 13 2015 at 8:35am Copy Link
Dmitry Popov I can't comment on Intel Quicksync, don't have any answer.

As for Zoom Player, it seems to work fine when loading .avs files from AviSynth, so using our Super Resolution plugin for AviSynth is quite simple: you create a text file with .avs extension with lines


and just open this file as a video in Zoom Player. By default it will upsize 2x. File "avssr.dll" should be in the same directory as .avs file you're opening (or you can use full path in the script). Consult AviSynth website to learn how to read other formats (not AVI).

Roger User I already have this program and it's terrific. I use it a lot in my current project, an independent feature film. The ability to use Virtual Dub plugins to stabilize footage while either blowing up or reducing a shot is a big time saver. If you do any kind of video production get Video Enhancer. This is a great price.

Dimitry is there any possibility of extending your wonderful program to make use of Photoshop plugins? A lot could be done with batch processing footage using DXO's color correction plugins or those by Topaz. That just scratched the surface of what could be possible.

Thank you for all your good work.
Jul 14 2015 at 8:32am Copy Link
Dmitry Popov Thanks! We'll definitely look into the possibility of using Photoshop filters, especially since the next big release - v2.0. - will look more Photoshop-like, with filters as "layers" and immediate result visibility.

Roger User v2.0 sounds very interesting with lots of capability for independent filmmakers. If you need beta testers I would be interested. Thank you for your good work.

Cary Adams Have you given thought about adding the GPU processor to the computing power assigned for conversion. I have an i7 PC and upverting a 720p file to 1080p took approximately twice as long as the video length (audio was untouched). FYI... I used x264 for a final mp4 container.

That seems a bit long particularly when your site has instructions for "on the fly" viewing of upgraded streams. Is there something I'm overlooking, because without a buffer of half the video stream, there's no way I could stream "on the fly" if the upverted file took 2 minutes per minute of video.

I will add that the 1080 quality was quite good compared to the 720p source (an mp4). I'm going to run this again from the original dvd mpeg rip and see what visiual improvement..
Jul 14 2015 at 2:14pm Copy Link
Dmitry Popov Cary, Super Resolution is computationally expensive and real time is only achievable with limited resolutions (SD, i.e. DVD-like) and certain settings (upsampling exactly 2x is much faster than 720->1080 because the latter really goes 720->1440->1080). Also, compressing to H.264 takes a lot of CPU cycles too, so processing a file writing it to disk is slower than just displaying the result.

Using GPU is a good idea and we certainly do want to do it, we just haven't had the resources to implement it yet.

Amit Thanks for the help Dmitry Popov. Software those on your site look really good. I already have license bought of this in 2014 deal, I think this release would take license bought in 2014, right ?

Dmitry Popov Unlike previous promos here, this is now version 2.0 with significantly different user interface and reworked internals. It's inspired by professional image editors, only instead of image you've got video and instead of layers you've got video filters. Now live preview for filters works fine and you can immediately see any changes in filters settings and order. Super Resolution engine did not change much, so output quality is the same as in 1.9, only user experience is very different.

User1 "Malwarebytes Anti-Malware has blocked a potentially malicious website."

Don't you guys check this stuff?
Apr 15 2016 at 6:10am Copy Link
Cary Adams I would advise potential buyers to trial this prior to purchase.

I bought this here and haven't been too impressed, particularly with mp4 conversions.

First, I can tell very little difference using this tool to increase resolution. Many video players are able to expand the native resolution with the same clarity and definition this tool provides. The difference then is only in the file size. If I can watch the native video with the same quality as the expanded, much larger file size, output from this tool, what have I gained.

I've also observed that this tool is very slow to convert. CUDA capability would be useful.

All in all, I seldom use this. Recently I attempted to use a watermark removal add-in, but found the process unnecessarily complicated in comparison to VirtualDub.

Overall this program does what it says, but in a very unremarkable way.

Infognition - Apr 15 2016 at 7:12am Copy Link
Dmitry Popov Cary, output quality depends a lot on quality of source video and compression settings. The new 2.0 version allows seeing clearly the difference that SR makes. On low quality files you won't see much improvement, but many professionals agree that for decent materials our upsizing engine is really good.
And don't forget about compression, if you use a low bitrate you'll lose all details gained with Super Resolution.
Infognition - Apr 15 2016 at 7:15am Copy Link
Cary Adams @Dmitry Popov I will try v2. FWIW, I usually use level 21 for mp4 quality. I do agree with your comment on low quality files. I've found there is no advantage in expanding those..

On the other hand, if I have a high quality file, then I have little need to expand that. For example, the line doubler on my HDTV does a commendable job with 720p, so I'm unclear of any advantage of SR. Maybe you can help me understand better.
