From my perspective there isn't a better tool on the market than BCC UpRez. I did a lot of competitive analysis while we were developing this filter and can tell you for certain that no other software product on the market today can produce a result as good as BCC UpRez. The UpRez filter is available as a single filter on it's own, or as part of the entire BCC package of 200 filters.
But instead of taking my word for it, download the free trial version and try it for yourself. You can download the software for free from this link:
Glad to hear it Rob. And should you decide that it's not for you, you can use the product uninstaller to completely remove the software from your system. If you need any assistance with either using or uninstalling the filter please feel free to drop me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I'm in the process of trying the Trial version but I seem to have run into a snag. I setup the FCP 7 just as you have outline in your online tutorial, but when I render the output from the "Master HD" sequence it spends about 57 minutes processing 2 minutes of footage and completes. But when I play in the timeline/sequence I still get the Needs Rendering message and have the red bar on top of the sequence timeline.
Not sure what I'm doing wrong here? I'll try rendering the UpRez Source SD sequence and see if that solves this problem. But any hints are welcome :)
