Looking really crisp and clear! Keep it up!
If you did this for all of the deleted scenes throughout the saga, a lot of editors will praise your efforts since a lot of people want to add scenes (especially in the sequels) but they are just too poor SFX wise.
I would love that too! Not sure how doable that is at the moment, but I’m sure once the technology is more refined we could get closer to that.
Not to bad, missing just a little bit of sharpness for my tastes but that will of course introduce new artifacts which need to be cleaned up by hand.
Yeah unfortunately the AI in its current stage is not great with textures, so a lot of things in the frame end up getting smoothed over. I think it has worked best for some of the episode 2 deleted scenes, as those were pretty soft to begin with. But it is much more noticeable in episode 3’s deleted scenes. I think it works really well with wide shots, so I’m experimenting with combining different shots with each one having different settings–as opposed to one setting for the whole scene–to get the best overall picture. In the end, I don’t expect to be able to bring these scenes up to the same quality as the rest of the movie, but my goal is just to make the transition into these scenes a little less jarring for a better viewing experience.
