Up scaling video to a higher resolution is something that can happen all the time. For example, you have to upscale an older video to fit into the resolution of a newer one. Or if you received a video with a lower resolution that the target resolution of the project you're working on. Upscale video can also be handy if you are creating a 4k video and have to use a screen-capture which for example was only recorded in 1080p. No matter the reason most of us already had a situation where we had to upscale.

Yet many do it wrong. Either they don't care, it isn't that critical to the project, or they simply don't know that there is another way to do it.

In this video I want to show you four methods how you can upscale your videos for your project. In my example we are going to upscale a 720p video to a 4k one. Keep in mind that upscaling a 720p video to a 4k video is rather extreme. But for better demonstration I went with a 720p video instead of a 1080p video.

The methods shown in this video requires paid as well as free software. If you are just interested in my recommendation feel free to jump to the recommendation section, listed in the timestamps below.
