Resolution / Fit TOPs and scaling

I’m experimenting with scaling modes, trying to get the best downscale results. I’ve been using fit TOP on it’s own, but was interested to see what a resolution TOP before it would do to improve the scaling.

My demo here uses a resolution TOP to scale to the correct width, with aspect correct height, and then a fit TOP to crop it. I’ve set the resolution TOP height to an even figure since it seems to make the following fit blurrier.

If you bypass the resolution TOP you can see the end result changes slightly, when in theory it shouldn’t because the fit is set to the same width.

Ideally, all the scaling TOPs like fit would have a variety of scaling modes such as Lancszos and edge detected etc.

Many thanks,

James
