Well, how does the footage look like in SD? Is it soft there? Upconverting footage is best done via hardware...tape to tape transfer via Terranex, or upconvert captured via Terranex, or AJA Kona hardware. Even then, it's not going to look as sharp as HD. And if it's soft to begin with, there's not much that can be done. Sharpening filters (not sure who has those, nothing built in Avid has those, I'll have to look at Sapphire on Monday) might not improve things, only make the SD soft artifacts harder edged, and more pronounced.
