Video Enhance AI v2.3 at a glance

  • New Chronos AI model for frame rate conversion – Easily adjust motion in your clips by slowing them down by up to 2000%. Convert the frame rate of your source footage to conform to your project requirements (e.g. 23.97 fps → 30 fps) or add even smoother motion by converting to higher frame rates (e.g. 60 fps or 120 fps)
  • New Proteus AI model for fine-tuned enhancement control – Get even more control over the output quality of your clips with six customizable sliders. New controls help reduce halos from over-sharpening, recover lost detail due to compression, and minimize aliasing that can result in less sharp footage.

  • AI model picker – Select the options that best represent your source clip and we’ll provide you with the AI models that can help enhance it.
  • Comparison View – Compare the results of three AI models alongside your original clip in one convenient view. Then select the best one to apply to your footage without changing views.
  • Performance and usability improvements – We’ve made many improvements to our AI engine for better speed and stability on across a range of hardware, as well as included several helpful usability improvements.

New Chronos AI model for frame rate conversion

Realistic slow motion made easy

With most other video editing applications, slowing down footage from a 24 fps clip would result in distracting stutters and dropped frames. However, Chronos leverages the power of AI to create beautiful slow motion results regardless of the source frame rate.
Watch how to use Chronos to slow down your video, convert frame rate, and learn best practices to ensure you get great results:

Take the guesswork out of frame rate conversion

Working with clips that have varying frame rates is a reality in video editing and the process of conforming them to your project requirements used to be a daunting task. Now, Chronos will take care of the heavy lifting involved with realistically converting the frame rate of your source clips to conform to your project requirements. Adjust a clip’s frame rate to 60, 100, or 120 fps to get even smoother motion blur between frames.
 
Let’s take a look at how the new Chronos AI model handles frame rate conversion compared to another leading video editing application, Apple Final Cut Pro. The source video was filmed at 24 fps. On the left half of the video below, we let Final Cut Pro convert the original 24 fps clip to 60 fps. Notice the slight jitter, especially when the speed of the UAV increases. For the right half of the video, we used Chronos to perform the same 60 fps conversion. Notice how much smoother the motion is when using Chronos as opposed to Final Cut Pro.

New Proteus AI model for fine-tuned enhancement control

One of the most requested features we’ve received is to provide greater control over how to improve your video clips. The new Proteus AI model was built specifically to meet this request. Control six discrete sliders to fine-tune de-blocking, detail recovery, sharpening, noise reduction, de-haloing, and anti-aliasing. Select the most ideal frame in your clip and click the “Auto” button, letting our AI engine analyze the selected frame and provide recommended settings based on what’s displayed.

New presets manager

Quickly load your favorite AI model settings

If you’ve found yourself constantly having to select the same AI model and settings over and over, you’re going to love the new Preset Manager. Configure the settings of your favorite AI model, save that snapshot as a preset, and quickly load on subsequent projects. Share your favorite presets with other Video Enhance AI users and import presets shared with you.

New AI model picker and comparison view

Choose the right AI models with confidence

It can sometimes be challenging to decide which AI model would work best with your video clip. To make that task easier, we’ve built two helpful features: the AI model selector and the comparison view. With the AI model selector, choose the type of clip you want to enhance and which issue most affects it. We’ll suggest three AI models that are best suited for the task based on your selections. On top of that, a new comparison view conveniently displays those three recommended AI models simultaneously, giving you even more confidence when choosing the best one for your clip.

Performance and usability improvements

Thanks to improvements to our AI Engine pipeline, you’ll experience a 50% performance boost with NVIDIA GeForce GTX GPUs and up to 3x faster on Apple M1 silicon computers. We’ve also included a number of usability improvements directly based on user feedback including displaying the process completion time in “hours:minutes:seconds” instead of just seconds and adding the ability to switch between showing frames and timecodes in the UI.
 
We’re constantly striving to make Video Enhance AI smarter and more effective when improving the quality of your video footage, whether it’s bringing out details from your old family videos, upscaling a Zoom video recording, or adjusting the resolution, speed and frame rate of cinematic footage.

  1. I can’t use it on my Mac. When will M1 be supported?

    1. Hey there, William. To be clear, Video Enhance AI certainly works on M1 Macs. In fact, I’ve been testing this release on my M1 Macbook Air for the past month. Download the installer and you’ll see that it’ll launch and run on your M1 Mac, too.

  2. It would really be nice if I could stop a enhancement process and save what I have completed so far and be able to view it with the ability to restart where I left off later if needed. I have a number of old family videos that I am enhancing and the latest update is much faster and is putting out a better result but if I run out of time I am not able to stop, save, and start where I left off later. It would be a huge help to be able to do so.

    1. This is fantastic feedback, Robert, and I know that it’s something our developers are looking into. We listen very closely to our users and are constantly working on ways to improve your experience using Video Enhance AI. So, stay tuned!

    2. Your best bet at the moment is to output to a PNG or TIF sequence. The next time you start the program you can just set your in point to the last frame that was exported.

      1. That’s actually a very interesting stopgap solution, Roshan.

    3. One more thing, Robert. You can also directly submit feedback to us from within Video Enhance AI. Under the Help menu, you’ll see an option to submit feedback. We review it all, so please feel free to leverage it.

    4. Robert is correct in pointing out how extremely useful it would be if we could pause and restart the enhancement process – especially for jobs that require 24 hours or more.

      1. I can promise you that this is something on our radar that we’re looking into, Tom. I’d also recommend using the Submit Feedback feature under the Help menu in the app to share your thoughts. We really do pay close attention to those submissions. Thanks!

  3. Do the performance and stability enhancements with Video Enhance AI v2.3 effect my Radeon Pro 5700 XT and Intel i9 chipset?

    1. Hi there, David. While everyone should experience some performance gains as part of the improvements to our AI models, there weren’t any optimizations in this update that targeted AMD GPUs for the Mac.

      1. Thank you sir.

  4. Should I ‘Uninstall’ the previous version, or overwrite with the new one? (Just can’t find instructions…..)

    Tom

    1. Hey there, Tom. You can use the installer to overwrite your previous version and everything will be good to go. Enjoy it!

  5. Brian,
    Do customised presets store the ai model used locally? If not, how do you store local copies of the ai models (my computer only d/ls them at 6Mb/s) which can take a while – it would be nice to only have to d/l them once).

    1. Hi there, Peter. Great question. Think of the preset files as snapshots of the settings you’ve specified for a given AI model. When you save a preset, the only contents are the parameters for those settings. The AI models aren’t included as part of the preset files, however they are stored locally in a different area on your computer. If you attempt to process a video clip using a model that you don’t have locally, then Video Enhance AI will download it from the cloud. Let me know if that helps clarify things for you.

  6. The quality of the frame rate changes is amazing!
    Brian is it possible to add ramping?

    1. It’s great to hear that you’re enjoying the frame rate conversion feature of Chronos, Ken! I’ve been using it for most of June and have constantly been impressed, too. As for ramping, that’s a great feature request. In fact, if you go to the Help menu in Video Enhance AI, you can submit your feature request as feedback. I can guarantee you that it will be read and discussed.

      1. Hey Brian. I’m having issues with VE AI_2.3
        I scaled (1080-4k) and used Artemis V12 Output 422HQ (from h264 file) and when importing into Premiere Pro it PP doesn’t recognize it’s fields status (should be Progressive) indicates dropped frames, says the codec is apch not Prores 422HQ, and it’s only importing 3 seconds of a 2min30sec clip. I’ve done a great deal of trouble shooting but no luck. Have any ideas what’s going on? Thanks.

        1. I realize now that the aphc is the codec id not the codec. Yet it should should show PR 422hq

        2. It’s an audio issue of some sort not matching with video. I exported the file without audio from PP and imported into VE 2.3 and exported without audio from VE and it imported into PP complete. Doing one more test and using the original clip with audio and importing that into VE and now I’m exporting from VE _1080-4k, 422hq, Artemis v12. So I’ll see what happens.

          1. No go. If the clip comes with audio then I export from VE AI witout audio also I still can’t import into PP complete. I get only about 23 seconds.

          2. I realize that the original clip has a variable frame rate. I’m guessing that has something to do with it.

          3. Hey there, David. Just to close the loop here, I’ve reached out to you via email so that we can further investigate this issue together. 👍🏼

      2. Hi Brian, I have been running Chronos but its very slow, it gets up to 1.7sec/frame. I am using a Mac Pro 16 with 2xW5700 and a Radeon VII. Do you have any special settings aside from All GPU? Thanks I appreciate it.

        1. Hey there, Cris. I’d be happy to help. To start, can you let me know which version of MacOS you’re running on your Mac Pro? Thanks!

  7. The Windows update only partially downloads (2.0/3.1). Any suggestions?

    1. I’m sorry to hear that, Margaret. I can confirm that both the Windows and Mac installers downloaded fully for me. If you’re still unable to download it, then I’d ask you to contact our support team for further assistance.

  8. Great content! Keep up the good work!

    1. Thank you, Sanuk!

  9. When will exporting to a lossless video format be supported? That’s the one thing holding me back from getting the software currently.

    1. Hey there, Timothy. I appreciate the feature request submission and have reported it to our product dev team. Hopefully, we’ll be able to add that feature to a future update.

  10. I’ve been interested in Video Enhance AI for a long time but until It can passthrough 5.1 sound I will have to keep waiting.

    Thanks
    Ron

    1. Hi there, Ronald. Thanks so much for the feedback. I’ve passed it along to our product team and they have assured me that we will be expanding audio support in Video Enhance AI in future updates.

  11. nice plugin. i use it

  12. Hi there,
    VideoEnhance AI seems to do a great job at a lot of things we could use. The only downside that I can see at the moment are the limited import and export formats. In the animation and film industry, where I work, we use either OpenEXR sequences (16Bit half or 32Bit float) or sometimes DPX sequences (10Bit). If VideoEnhance AI could add these, that would be awesome.

    1. Hi there, Guillaume. Thanks so much for the feedback! We want to ensure that our app fits within a wide variety of workflows, including those in the animation and film industries. As such, I will be relaying it to our dev team. Also, if you’re a Video Enhance AI user, you can also submit the feedback directly to the by going to the Help menu and selecting Submit Feedback.
