    Currently, Premiere uses the Lanczos method for intrinsic scale and rotation. Lanczos is an exceptionally high-quality interpolation method which generally yields better results than bicubic, bilinear or nearest neighbor. From reading the forum post, it seems that up-scaling is the real issue here. I suggest looking at the Detail-Preserving Upscale effect in After Effects. It does a really good job and gives you some parameters to tweak to fit your specific content.

    Because this thread on the issue is seeing some attention lately, I want to toss my hat in the ring yet again. I'm working a lot with retro footage in my content production and had to resort to up-scaling with VirtualDub because of the lack of a nearest neighbor option in Premiere.

    @Francis Crossman: I'm sure this had been pointed out elsewhere but it seems that you don't understnd the problem we're having: It's not about (detail-enhnacing) upscaling, it's about doubling the pixels that are in the footage explicitly *without* interpolation.

    @TaranVH That is true and speeds up my workflow at least a little bit until this gets implemented *nudge nudge* ;)

    @TaranVH I mean that I don't want to have to round-trip to a different software (even if it's from Adobe) for a feature as simple as manually picking an upscale algorithm. I wish it would work like time interpolation: Right click a clip and pick the algorithm, see the attached mock-up :)

    I'd love to have a per-clip option for the scaling algorithm as I work a lot with retro-game footage in tiny resolutions whose sharp pixel edges I want to preserve. Currently, the only way of not having them blur together is to do the scaling in VirtualDub and render out a new file which is tedious and feels unnecessary.

    Please make nearest neighbor / integral scaling an option!

    You got my vote, I need this feature as well!

    How is this still not implemented after so many years?! This would be especially helpful for visualizations in tandem with Element3D.
