Video Enhancer 1.7 | 2.3 MB
Video Enhancer allows you to:
1. Increase resolution of your video with Video Super Resolution technique which delivers unbelievable quality by using information from previous frames, while all the other resize methods use information from one current frame. Now you can convert your SD video to HD!
2. Use more than a hundred of VirtualDub filters allowing you to do everything you want with your video: deinterlacing, denoising, deblocking, color correction, deshaking, sharpening, visual effects etc. On multiprocessor systems, dual core or hyperthreading CPUs works a lot faster than VirtualDub because all filters, decoders and coders work in separate threads simultaneously.
3. Open any video which can be played on your system and re-compress it with any video codec (DirectShow, DMO and Video for Windows) installed in your system.
With Video Enhancer you can do all these tasks together or just some of them.
1. Video Super Resolution
Video Enhancer can convert your video to any resolution with superb quality. Super Resolution is a technique of increasing images or video resolution. For each processed frame it uses information not only from this frame but also from other frames. If picture in your video doesn't change too fast, then information from several frames can be added to create a picture of a bigger size. No algorithms of ordinary image resize/resample can provide this quality just because there's not enough information in one frame.
2. Hundred of filters for video editing
You might be familiar with VirtualDub - a very powerful video editing application. What makes it so powerful is its video filters. There is more than a hundred filters for VirtualDub, you can do absolutely anything with your video with these filters, possibilities are limitless. But VirtualDub reads only AVI files and works only with Video for Windows codecs.
Video Enhancer allows you to use most of the VirtualDub filters (90% now) combining with power to open any video file (AVI, WMV, MPEG, RM, MOV - see documentation for details) and use any video codec either Video for Windows and DirectShow.
Unlike VirtualDub, in Video Enhancer all filters, coders and decoders work simultaneously in separate threads. For example, if you process your video with two filters, then at the time coder compresses the first frame second filter is already processing second frame, first filter is processing third frame and decoder decompresses fourth frame. Simple test with processing DV video with 3 filters and compressing it with XviD showed 1.9 times higher speed than VirtualDub on Dual Core AMD Opteron.
Here is a list of VirtualDub filters that work well with Video Enhancer. Choose any filters from that list, download them, unpack and put *.vdf files to "plugins" directory in the Video Enhancer folder. If you have VirtualDub installed, then Video Enhancer will find installed filters automatically.
In Video Enhancer you can create chains with any number of VirtualDub and Super Resolution filters. It means you can filter your video before resizing, after resizing, between or even instead. ;)
3. Convert your video
After you've decided what to do with your video, you can choose any video codec to compress your output video to reduce the output file size. Video Enhancer lets you use not only VfW codecs (like VirtualDub) but also DirectShow and DMO ones, i.e. any video codecs.
