GCKelloch: Sharpen just increases contour contrast. It doesn't improve resolution at all. It's just an illusion, and actually compromises the chroma depth. The HQ3D Denoiser can actually improve the clarity when used very sparingly. The "spacial" algorithm adds a subtle white sheen, like I'm watching through a fine silk cloth. I turn that off. It's not really possible to separate noise from what belongs within each individual frame, but "temporal" processing makes particular sense for video noise from older video equipment. By comparing several previous and upcoming frames, it can eliminate what doesn't belong, unless (I suppose) something very small passes through a shot within just a few frames. FI, it might eliminate some Gnats from a shot. Try at the default settings. High settings will compromise the image. Too much noise can't really be cleaned because there isn't enough image in consecutive frames to draw from. It should be performed b4 any upscaling for best results.
Ellen Philpotts-Page: For any of you all are still going through the same crap as I was. Here's how. By the way, I'm watching Batman v Superman Ultimate Edition. And now (I swear by the old gods and the new) I'm watching this movie perfectly streamed through 1080p on my 4 ram laptop. Before you read any further though. Make sure y'all go to your Preferences and reset y'all settings. Now:
[VIDEO SETTINGS] SCROLL TO VIDEO-MODE-DISCARD
[INPUT/CODECS] SKIP H. 264 IN-LOOP DEBLOCKING FILTER-ALL
[X264 PROFILE AND LEVEL SELECTION] BASELINE
Click SAVE. Reset your VLC Player by clicking exit. Go back to it. Tell me what y'all think. Like me too :)
Majora: You should give some credit to the person who actually created the original guide for these settings instead of claiming this as your own findings. ... 6 years too late to say this, but credit is due none the less.
Matthias Etzold: Thanks!
Rehan Chougle: Holy crap ! Ur facecam is an illusion
james roxas: i can't hear what this guys guy is saying.
Nick Brutanna: Needs to be updated, a lot of stuff has changed in five years. As-is, this is practically useless if you're using the current version.
Alex Richards: My VLC crashes when I use these options, any way around it?
jmjpilger: Absolutely brilliant! I will recommend these settings.
abyss X: what is the program that u are using for setting ?
de5letras: "upscaling"? What freaking is this? O.o Just put "Play" and the video run in the correct resolution.
FoodOnCrack: Hmm i prefer sharpen at 0.05, it gets too rough and looks stupid otherwise.
AeranoZ Music: Whenever i want to play a dvd with exactly your settings VLC player stops working :/
Tomas Konrad: THX useful.
hajofoa: Thank you! Great Help
thepisaller: It does work, the videos looks better but once you tried an 1080p video it just crash, any advice with that? Or maybe an update of this tutorial? help
