Get To Know DaVinci Resolve 15’s Super Scale Feature

However, Resolve 15’s new Super Scale feature changes the game.There are many ways to use SD footage on an HD timeline: you can give the SD layer a background (as most news broadcasts do), you could duplicate the SD layer and expand and blur the bottom layer (as documented here), or you could increase the scale of the low-resolution media to fit the resolution of the timeline. However, increasing low-resolution media causes a handful of problems, such as pixelation, noise, and a loss of sharpness. Simply put, it makes the image look tacky.Many software features can help with the resizing process and make an image appear clearer than it would if you simply increased the scale of the media. Now In Resolve 15, there’s a new upscaling feature that can resize HD to 8K.  It’s called Super Scale. Resolve already has a fantastic image rescaling filter, which you can set up according to the requirements of your project — either through the setup menu or in the inspector.The Super Scale tool is different. It uses an advanced algorithm that improves image detail upon enlarging — so it’s a processor-intensive operation. For the first several seconds of a clip that I enlarged from 1080p to 4k, I was getting 9 frames-per-second playback. The tool is more for SD media in a UHD timeline — or for when you need to zoom way into a 1080p clip on a timeline with a significantly higher resolution.Where Is It?The Super Scale isn’t as accessible as many other features — you won’t find it in the inspector, nor in any menu panels. To get to Super Scale options, right-click your media, and select “Clip Attributes.”From there, you’ll find the Super Scale menu at the bottom of the video tab with three settings to work with: Super Scale, Sharpness, and Noise Reduction. The first setting changes the size of the file. You can choose from 2x, 4x, and 6x. The sharpness and noise reduction settings will then help you fine-tune the resize.The still below is a screenshot zoomed in at 200% with the Super Scaled image on the right. It was a 1080p file Super Scaled to fit a UHD timeline. I’m not too sure how well the comparison image below is going to convey the results — perhaps not at all since we can only upload stills at a specific resolution (we have to make sure these tips load at lightning speed right?), but I encourage you to test out the Super Scale feature. There is a significant difference in quality between Resolve’s standard resize filter and the Super Scale feature. It’s magical.last_img read more

Bardet finished 2:02 behind Bodnar to hold onto third by a single second while Froome crossed the line moments later, to claim third place on the stage and secure a fourth Tour title.“I’m at my limit, I’m tired, I gave everything,” said the 26-year-old.“I’m delighted to have given it everything and there’s a little bit of success in having saved a podium place.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next FEU Auditorium’s 70th year celebrated with FEU Theater Guild’s ‘The Dreamweavers’ National Coffee Research Development and Extension Center brews the 2nd National Coffee Education Congress Hotel says PH coach apologized for ‘kikiam for breakfast’ claim Ethel Booba on hotel’s clarification that ‘kikiam’ is ‘chicken sausage’: ‘Kung di pa pansinin, baka isipin nila ok lang’ MOST READ “It’s incredible, the atmosphere here in Marseille, it’s massive being here in the stadium,” said Froome, 32, who will nonetheless finish without a stage win this year.“It’s the Tour de France, you can’t always win everything,” said the Sky team leader.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSSEA Games: Biñan football stadium stands out in preparedness, completionSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSWin or don’t eat: the Philippines’ poverty-driven, world-beating pool stars“We had to put in the effort over three weeks and that’s what we did.”For Bodnar, it was sweet revenge have come within a few hundred metres of a solo victory on stage 11, before he was caught by a charging peloton and Marcel Kittel took the sprint finish.

Batting form, luck at toss important: Kapil

first_imgBatting would be India’s strength in the upcoming World Cup but Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s wretched luck with the toss will also have to turn for the better if India are to break a 28-year-old jinx at the mega-event, feels 1983 World Cup winning captain Kapil Dev.Kapil Dev”Our strength is batting and I feel we should depend on that and have faith. Luck also plays a part…winning the toss in every match. It will be marginally difficult if we lose the toss and the rival team posts a huge total for us to chase a target of 300 or so,” the legendary all-rounder said in an interview.”If we get to bat first and make 300 and odd runs, our bowlers could do the rest for us to win each match,” he added.Though the present squad has been described as balanced by most, the lack of a genuine all-rounder has been a concern but Kapil said Dhoni as a wicket-keeper/batsman fills that slot perfectly.”There is no such thing as even the wicketkeeper is considered an all rounder. We have Dhoni as an all-rounder in the team. Hope he does well to help India win the World Cup and create history as statistics say that no host has won the Cup so far,” he said.”On paper, India look favourites without any doubt. We have so many match-winning players in our team but fielding and running between the wickets are doubtful as the team has a few weak links. Overall the team’s batting is so powerful that it can keep you in good stead and wrest the initiative,” Kapil said of India’s chances in the event starting February 19 in the sub-continent.advertisementKapil said Dhoni is the strength of the team for his exceptional leadership. “I am happy for only one thing that the captain is such important person in the team. If he gets going there is nobody to replace him,” he said.The selection of three spinners in the team has been criticised but Kapil refused to call it a case of one too many.”There is just one extra spinner in the team besides quite a few part time bowlers and picking the playing eleven depended on the captain’s point of view,” he said.On whether the intense pressure of playing at home would be a disadvantage, Kapil said, “I must say that it works both ways. People’s expectations are high and go higher most often.The advantage is that crowd support is going to help you and cheer for you. It depends on how the team members take it,” he said.Kapil refused to comment on whether the team would miss South African coach Gary Kirsten after his stint ends at the end of the World Cup.”I do not know because I am not with the team and I cannot answer what influence the coach had on the team’s performances. The team had foreign coaches for about nine or ten years now,” he said.”I do not bother about these aspects as it is entirely the job of the Indian Cricket Board,” he added.Asked whether he has any advice to offer to the Indian team for winning the Cup, Kapil quipped, “I am not good enough to give advice but they should enjoy themselves and play hard.”Looking back at the 1983 campaign, Kapil said none in the team expected to win the Cup but the belief grew with each match.”There were never any expectation as none of the team members and the team management gave a thought about our winning. It never crossed our minds right from the time we left the Indian shores that we should bring the Cup home,” he said.”We never set any goal for us but we concentrated on winning each league match. Firstly we wanted to win all our league matches and then each of the knockout ties. We were all rejoicing when we made the final and at that point of time we decided to give our best shots.”It was total team work that paid off in our team winning the title. I was feeling elated being captain and I had no words to praise my team mates for their unstinted efforts in realising the dream,” he added.With PTI inputslast_img read more

Tottenham stuns Man City to reach Champions League semis

first_imgThe second half began with a City onslaught but Lloris’s diving save kept out Sterling’s low shot and one-handed save palmed an effort from De Bruyne around a post.The first flickers of a Spurs threat in the second half came when Llorente dived in with a header but it lacked power and was blocked by goalkeeper Ederson.And the momentum swung again when City scored its fourth in the 59th.Ilkay Gundogan’s crossfield pass landed at the feet of De Bruyne, who drove forward before slipping the ball through to Agüero who beat Lloris at his near post with a powerful shot.For the first time on the night, City was in front on aggregate and on course for its second Champions League semifinal.But the hosts couldn’t close the game out.When Trippier whipped in a corner, Llorente rose and turned the ball into the net with his hip.The celebrations were put on hold when the referee went to the touchline to check if the ball came off Llorente’s arm, but the goal stood.As the Premier League champions chased the goal that would sent them through, Aguero had a header saved by Lloris and an effort from Gundogan was scooped over.When Sterling did find the net again, VAR intervened to leave the home fans crushed. That is a rare feeling at the Etihad Stadium, 11 years into the club’s influx of cash from Abu Dhabi.

Coping without any new signings this season, the team is fighting for a top four finish and a Champions League places.The north London club will qualify anyway if it wins European football’s top prize for the first time.Before then, City and Tottenham have to do it all again — with an instant domestic reunion on Saturday.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Private companies step in to help SEA Games hosting Tottenham advanced thanks to Fernando Llorente’s hip, which nudged the ball into the net in the 73rd minute for a goal that survived a VAR review for possible handball. It was the last goal of a night that will be long remembered by clubs that lived in the shadows of larger rivals in their own cities.“That is why we love football, we feel the passion,” Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino said.” We enjoy watching football, anything can happen.“Today we showed our great character, great personality. To score three goals against Manchester City is not easy.”Not when top-scorer Harry Kane was out through injury. Not when the midfield options were so depleted that an injury to Moussa Sissoko before halftime before Pochettino to bring on out-of-favor center forward Llorente.And Tottenham will play the first leg against Ajax without Son Heung-min — Kane’s understudy who scored the valuable first-leg goal last week. Son scored Tottenham’s first two goals at Etihad Stadium, then picked up a booking for a foul on Kevin De Bruyne that earned him a one-game suspension for yellow card accumulation.The South Korean showed just how influential he is for Tottenham in a start unlike anything seen before in the Champions League.Four goals in the opening 11 minutes. The fifth in the 21st minute, after five shots on target.“The first 10 minutes of this game and the last five was fairytale stuff,” Eriksen said.Sterling put City ahead in just the fourth minute. Son then netted twice to put City in a position where it had to score three more goals to advance.City did just that to take a 4-2 lead, only for Llorente — and the VAR — to have the last say.

Amit Shah blames Nehru for PoKs existence

Addressing a rally here on the Centre’s decision to abrogate Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir and to campaign for the BJP for the next month’s Maharashtra Assembly polls, he said, “I want to tell all BJP workers that our work doesn’t end at the removal of Article 370, our work starts now.” “It is our target to take this country forward on the chapter of nationalism and progress,” he said.
