    "It's an alternative.."

    October 27, 2012  |   By MrOllyK

    Version: Video Enhancer 1.9.8.2

    Pros

    Does seem fast and interface very intuitive. The super resolution feature is very handy as I can use this to enhance the video and improve clarity when I resize it back down again in VirtualDub.

    Cons

    The CNET installer fails, so I managed to get this elsewhere. Nowhere near as useful or powerful as VirtualDub. I did have an earlier version and it was a bit crashy on Win7. Filter pack not included.

    Summary

    It's a useful second or third image processor when nothing else can do it. Download the VirtualDub filter pack and put them into the Plugins directory. Some filters may be buggy and not the fault of Video Enhancer. I'm currently supersizing a video as I write this, have upped the enhancer's priority to high. Super Resolution works very well. In all quite powerful for its simplicity.

    "It Sounds Good, In Theory..."

    October 24, 2011  |   By SunnySouthTexas

    Version: Video Enhancer 1.9.6

    Pros

    Small, and intuitively laid out. I understand the logic of it, without an 82-page manual.

    Cons

    After having to add the fourth component to (again) try to get it to do ~something/anything~ I gave up and uninstalled it.

    Summary

    I wasn't interested in download half a dozen components from various locations, I thought it would be a Ready-to-Function program... I was mistaken.
    My use was a one-time necessity, that I will just have to do without. It is not worth the hassle or expense of trying to get something to work, just to fix this one mis-shot video.

    "It has potential if you like trial & error procedures"

    March 23, 2010  |   By 1TyeSin

    Version: Video Enhancer 1.9.1

    Pros

    Hmmmmmmmmm

    Cons

    Freezes with Vista. Too much guesswork.

    Summary

    Product functionality is poor n Vista. Alway use the trail version b4 purchasing. After 02 months wait time... I have not recieved the hard copy version on disk. I will never buy online again unless its from a known & trusted vendor.

    "Now fast and as good as possible"

    July 23, 2008  |   By efenstor

    Version: Video Enhancer 1.4

    Pros

    The new version supports multicore processors and is really fast, as to quality I compared it to the competitors (Topaz Enhance, YUV Super Resolution) and it really beats them. Don't expect wonders but it's obviously better than any resampling, if you want the best SD to HD possible at the moment Video Enhancer is for you.

    Cons

    There's still a vast area for technological improvements: adaptive number of frames to combine, different frame combination methods (multivariative median, WMMR, etc.), object-specific motion compensation, etc.

    "Buggy"

    April 21, 2008  |   By spartain

    Version: Video Enhancer 1.4

    Pros

    I downloaded v1.4 and was offered to upgrade to v1.8. The layout is good, and there's a wizard and Simple Mode. It's a bit more intuitive than many programs of this ilk.

    Cons

    However, there is no Help file, which, for a paid program, is pretty appalling; you will need to search the internet for answers. If you want to see a preview of a filter effect it tells you that you can not see a preview, but will be able to during process. This is rubbish too, because you need to see the preview in order to set the filter correctly. Other programs do it. Once you start the processing, and you find that the filter is not right, you will need to stop the process, and here get ready for a big freeze of your PC! Whenever this has happened I've been forced to sit and wait for it all to close down, and then lose my settings! Hopeless.

    It's very buggy. I use XP Pro (SP2) and this program is often crashing or freezing. Whenever I try to use it with the XVid codec it just freezes up. I also kept getting crashes for no apparent reason.

    Dee Mon have a damn cheek charging for such an appalling program. If you don't want to waste hours of your time, steer clear.
