Thanks to Trillary Dump, a new HD image of the original Senate scene miraculously resurfaced (see original post here).

Precisely, my HD reconstruction tool feeds on this kind of HD images: the more it receives, the better the final result is.
So I added this new image to my tool and regenerated the scene.

Here is the resut (compared to another project where a simple upscaled SD video seems to be used):

I did it quicky without really adjusting the fine parameters, but the result seems to me already very promising.

I’m currently writing a tutorial about this technique, with a video sample from another missing scene (arrival on Coruscant) which gives an astonishing result identical in quality to the HDTV version.
But it takes lot of time (especially since English is not my mother tongue, and I have a little girl who asks a lot of attention everytime I try to sit at my computer).
