Vizual PixelPerfect : Upscale your Pixel Art with Nearest Neighbors in Premiere Pro for FREE !

July 30th, 2021
Discover our new pack of filters for Adobe CC that brings you FREE pixel art upscaling algorithms for Premiere Pro and After Effects
Todya we are releasing a new free product, Autokroma Vizual, which comprises of one visual effect plugin for Adobe CC Premiere Pro and After Effects. As you might know, pixel art upscaling (resulting in blocky images, to show old images and sprites for example) isn't natively possible in Premiere Pro. Users need to work around Premiere Pro's limitations and this process takes a little bit more time. Here is an example of Adobe UserVoice where users are asking for this feature : https://adobe-video.uservoice.com/forums/911233-premiere-pro/suggestions/37024072-nearest-neighbor-scaling-sampling-simple-and-v

To solve this issue we came up with a new effect plugin called PixelPerfect, that lets you do that easily in a few clicks ! To use, simply download and install from the Download page of Vizual just like all our others Autokroma plugins (AfterCodecs, BRAW Studio, PlumePack, Influx etc.). Once installed you will find the "Vizual PixelPerfect" effect in the "Autokroma" category of Premiere Pro and After Effects. Check the compatibility of your system and software first !
Don't forget that for now PixelPerfect will allocate the whole upscaled frame. If you require more advanced features and to only zoom in a subpart of the image without allocating the whole frame, please contact us !
