So this is one of my first Chronos 1.4 8K upscaling tests with Topaz VEAI. This was a challenge to edit because my laptop struggles with 8K even though it easily edits 4K (NVIDIA GTX 1080 Mobile GPU and i7 8700K CPU). However, I thought it was worth it when I looked at the final results. Using Gaia CG I was able to upscale the 1280 X 1024 to 7680 X 6144 decently. I think this upscale shows how flexible the Chronos 1.4 DNGs are. All the clips were shot at 1,000 FPS. There are two videos below. One is the 8K upscaled version and the other is the 1280 X 1024 version so you can compare the original and the upscaled versions.

Nice upscaling test! Iíve been having great results with VEAI as well. I should have more up soon this week. Did you shoot DNG or MP4?

I shoot TIFF.
Did you work with DNG? So its necessary to convert it for VEAI, isn't it?

Greetings Chronos 1.4 users. Just wanted to share a couple of screen grabs of some 1280 X 1024 files upscaled to 4K (before going through artifact reduction in Vegas Pro and Acrovid) of a hummingbird project I've been working on the last two weeks (video should be up in a week or two). You'll see a before and after zoomed in at 50%, 100 % and 200% respectively (you can click on each pic individually to see the full quality pic) Usually after I upscale, I also do some artifact reduction with Neat Video 5 and Acrovid. Of course the upscales will never compare to something shot in true 4K, but with careful editing and cleanup, you can really bring out and improve the image. I always recommend shooting in DNG if you want the best quality output with less banding. Also, remember these are zoomed in just to illustrate the upscale effect. If you're viewing this from a normal viewing distance, the result is decent.

Those are some awesome lightning clips. Did you film this with some sort of waterproof case or inside through a window?

Thanks! I shoot from either inside my car or under some sort of cover, sometimes the rear tailgate if the rain isn't too heavy.

Love popcorn! That was cool to see how the kernel pops up in motion.
