  1. Import your first video and apply your settings.
  2. Click on Process > Setting as Default.
  3. Import the rest of your clips and identical settings will be applied.

Choosing Your AI Processing Mode

Selecting Video Output Using Presets

Video Enhance AI offers a selection of video output presets, or you can choose your own custom settings.

Preview Your Video Enhance Output

Select a starting point on the timeline and click the Preview button to see a 30-frame sample of your rendered video output. Happy with your results? It’s time to process your video.

Choosing Your Output Format

The default mpeg4 output will be suitable for most projects, and will result in a ready-to-use video upon completion.

For the highest-quality output, along with a reduction in processing time for videos greater than 1,000 frames, select 16bit TIFF output.

Achieving Highest-Quality Output

For the highest-quality video productions, you need the highest-quality output. If you’re working on a larger project with more than 1,000 frames, or if you need the absolute best results, it’s recommended to select 16bit TIFF as your output format.

The final output will result in a folder of sequentially-numbered TIFF files ready to be assembled in the video editor of your choice.

Assembling TIFFs Into Video Footage

To complete your output, you can assemble your TIFF images within the video editor of your choice. 

In Quicktime, select File > Open Image Sequence and select your TIFF images. Your video will be created automatically and ready for further post-production.
