Can someone explain the quality differences between "quick export" and exporting using the "computer device" method set at 720p medium quality? This file I captured came from  a VHS tape with an Elgato capture cord. The captured image is 480p

I performed both methods of export with a 1hr mp4 that was originally 678,000k,  after performing my edits. The exported "computer setting" file is 10  times the size and takes almost 10 times longer to export. The "quick export" mp4 file is 480p

The "quick export" mp4 file is 485,000kb while the "computer setting 720p medium quality file is 4,425,000.

I am editing this file for a friend and I want to make sure the picture quality is good.

Am I improving the video image by exporting to a 720p or just creating a larger file and wasting time? Does it upscale or not? Keep in mind these are old family vhs tapes that have been copied to my windows 10 machine.

You say you have a basic image quality resolution of 480.  That is "standard definition" used in earlier TVs.  720 is "standard high definition".   You can't add the pixels to make the lower grade resolution into the higher grade.  Stick with the 480.

kind of what I thought. Standard vhs was 480p so that makes sense.

Bigge file does not equal better image.

Would premiere pro allow me to upscale 480p to 720p or 1080p?? I wonder if it would be worth it or just like lipstick on a pig.

My experience leads to the answer of  "lipstick on a pig".  That said, I googled "upscale video to 1080p" and got a lot of hits!   Recently I've been experimenting with still image upscaling using products from Topaz.  I was impressed enough that Topaz now has $100 of my money!  (Topaz Gigapixal AI is the program.)  

 

Recently Topaz has started offering "Video Enhance AI" and they say you can do what you want.  https://www.topazlabs.com/video-enhance-ai
