Though we've entered the age of 4K, enjoying glorious Ultra HD image resolution, we still have to deal with massive resources in poor quality occasionally. There are some low-resolution old music videos, movie clips, or old videos recorded a decade ago. It's also common that footages shot by iPhone, Android phones, GoPro, and camcorders are blurry, fuzzy, shaky, or have background noise, bad lighting, etc. Ruined video quality can be very frustrating especially when these resources are badly needed. With the right video quality enhancer, VideoProc, it won't take you much time to process and let your videos get a stunning new look.
The video processing program enables users to increase video quality by simply dragging a quality bar. This is super easy for novice users who don't want to face with any complicated parameter settings like resolution, bit rate, etc. during video post production. To do so,
Step 1: Launch VideoProc. Click the Video button on the main interface, click Add Video icon at the top, and select a source clip to load. Or directly drag and drop the video to the Video window. Batch video processing is supported.
Step 2: Click the codec Option button next to the video info under the menu bar.
Step 3: You should see a window with Quality section displayed on the top. Move the slider to High Quality side. Bitrate that determines video quality changes automatically according to the quality you set.
Step 4: Click the Done button to save the settings and close the window.
You can increase the video resolution a bit and make the whole image look better, for example, convert 360p to 720p, 720p to 1080p or even 2160p. You'd better know that it's unlikely to make a 360p clip really as good as 720p after video resolution conversion without doing further editing.
On the same video settings window, there's Video Codec Options category under Quality section. Find Resolution, click its drop-down list, and a wide range of resolution options shows up, from SD to 4K UHD. Select the one you want, and click the Done button at the bottom to apply the change to the source clip. The solid video quality enhancement program has high-quality deinterlacing to improve the output quality. It's also worth mentioning that the Level-3 HW Acceleration makes the whole video quality enhancement processing 5x faster.
Noise is easily captured in the clip recorded by our phones, GoPro, camcorders or webcams.

Step 1: Load the video you want to enhance using the steps we mentioned above.
Step 2: Click the Toolbox button at the bottom, and click the Denoise icon on the popping up a small window. Then click the codec Option button and the Denoise window appears.
Step 3: Set the Low Pass and High Pass values to remove background noise from your video. Or just keep the default values. Click the Done button to save the setting.

Step 2: Click Toolbox > Deshake, and click the codec Option button to get the deshaking option.
Step 3: Set the shakiness, accuracy, step size, and minimum contrast.
Step 4: After you're all set, click the Done button to save the changes and close the window.
The video can turn to be more sparkling by applying effects and filters. Located in the Effects menu, there are options to change brightness, contrast, hue, etc. to improve the light, shadows, color balance, and more, polishing your footages easily.

Step 2: Click the Effect tab on the menu under the video info. The Effects window appears. There are a wide range of filters to choose from.
Step 3: Select the filter you want to apply to the clip. On the left side, move the sliders left or right to adjust brightness, contrast, hue, gamma, and saturation. You'll see a preview of the adjusted video in the right window. Click the Reset button next to the Saturation slider if you'd like to undo the changes.
Step 4: Save the adjustment and close the window by clicking the Done button at the bottom.
It could happen that the recorded video files have black bars or ruined segments at the beginning, in the middle, the end, or any part of the clip. Cutting out these poor-quality pieces help improve the whole quality of the work.
