    for example:

    You can disable muxing by selecting the No Muxing muxer profile.

    In fact, you can disable more or less everything except the things you want:

    What would be the highest quality resizer for up-scaling in staxrip?
    Lately there is much talk about AI-upscaling..., but I guess this is not to find in staxrip (yet)?

    There is no "best for every case". Different material may make you prefer different resampler kernels because they differ in the amount of smoothing or "sharpening" (with the side effects of adding ringing artifacts around borders).

    And StaxRip is only a user interface creating and executing AviSynth scripts, so it can only offer you a choice between scaling algorithms provided by AviSynth or its available plugins.

    I don't believe this hyped AI upscaler is available as such. But there are plugins with Edge Directed Interpolation (EDI), especially some based on pre-trained Neural Networks, e.g. NNEDI3: These plugins can upsample images by powers of 2 (means, 2 or 4 ... the original size in both directions), while preserving rather sharp looking edges without too much ringing. You can then downscale to a desired resolution with another simpler resizer (e.g. Spline16).

    Ok, so what is the highest quality build-in resizer with EDI for up-scaling in staxrip?

    I am sorry I replied. Now your question makes even less sense than before.

    Just don't over-complicate things. An easy question can be answered the same, for example, there is none or something like that. I am just a novice user using staxrip. I don't search complex solutions.
    If it is not included in staxrip, it doesn't exist for me.

    Some people like it "sharp" and prefer Lanczos, others don't like the exaggeration of noise and edge ringing. For general content I would suggest neutral or soft bicubic, or Spline16, which avoids too much ringing. If you have several similar functions with different numbers: The higher numbers usually cause a "sharper" image but more artifacts and more exaggerated noise.

    For cartoons I would recommend NNEDI3's rpow2 resize first and then a downscale with Spline16. But that's my personal taste. And I believe StaxRip does not even offer this two-step technique. It may require manual editing of the scvript.

    I just looked into StaxRip ... it has a "SuperRes" submenu. But I believe those are more interesting for computer generated videos? Not sure...

    Let's sum it up: Gotta try them all. Compare them, get a feeling how much you like which. In general, "PointResize" will probably be the least preferred choice, except for resizing pixel images.

    Ok, thanks anyway. I will look at SuperRes.
    I want to upscale just ordinary TV, no cartoons or similar.
