Questions regarding BasicVSR++
I noted that in Hybrid BasicVSR++ is available under 2 different filter tab:

1) Vapoursynth->Frame->Resize

   where the available models are: Vimeo-90K (BI), Vimeo-90K (BD)
   It is not clear to me the difference of these 2 models.

2) Vapoursynth->Other

    where the available models are: NITRE 2021 (1), NITRE 2021 (2), NITRE 2021 (3)
    Even in this case it is not clear to me difference of these 3 models.

Could you explain the usage of these 2 different BasicVSR++ modules.

At the address

there is a reference on these models, but nothing that helps in understanding the difference, moreover it seems that all these models are used for the Video Super-Resolution.
Difference between the models is just that they are trained with different content and thus will have different effects on different content.
NTIRE = New Trends in Image Restoration and Enhancement workshop and challenges on image and video processing. These are the models that were used in last years NTIRE challenges. See:

regarding 1.:
These models are used for upscaling.

regarding 2:
Models are used for denoising and restoration.

I performed some tests, for resize BasicVSR++ is too slow to be used in practice.

For resize the best combination is to use NNEDI3 for resize and BasicVSR++ (with model: NTIRE 2021 (3)) to improve the image quality.

In this case the speed is about 5 fps (with RTX3060 and FP16 enabled) and the final quality comparable with RealESERGAN.
ML stuff is mostly slow, espescially when using higher resolution.

Happy you found a meaningful way to use it. Smile
