Sorry, a lot to do at the moment. Still adjusting stuff.

I think I speak for a lot of us who are sitting here with baited breath. I cannot wait to be able to view the whole remastered series that you’ve done/are doing. The initial pics look amazing.

Thanks to all for your continued patience. Right now it’s only a matter of final adjustments - I am still trying to find the right balance for the color grading, since that is also influenced by the new workflow (which is definitely done).

The other thing is: I will leave some small errors in, since handy-replacing scenes is incredibly time-consuming and not worth spending hours on a split second visual problem.

Don’t worry, I will have stuff for you all soon.

And it will still look wildly better than the 480p version available on P+. Don’t worry that it’s not perfect.

Hello
You are doing a great job, congratulations!
What do you have done so far and how can get a list or some catalog? And especially how can it be downloaded or purchase it?

Thank you and I wish you happy work and good health!

I’m also very interested in this project. Deep Space Nine is my favorite Trek by far. The work you are doing looks incredible.

Please let me know if you plan on sharing this.

Is this project sadly abandoned?

Actually, I am moving across the country at the moment, so I can’t really do much with regards to uploading or responding. It’s both my business and my private home so a looot of work.
But I have finished upscaling both the first season of Deep Space Nine and Voyager.
I haven’t abandoned the project, no worries.

I will get back to it asap.

Yeah, I am truly sorry, but my head was in so many places I could hardly keep things straight at times. Right now I am constantly travelling between 4-5 hours (depending on traffic, which only means getting there, there are still 4-5 hours getting back) between my present and future home, at least once a month.
I am still working full time at my present home town (which is also where my business is located) and also trying to fix up the house where my future business and home will be.

So, whenever I can upscale stuff, I will let the automation do most of it, but I have little time to check and/or upload.
But I will try to fit that in somewhere.

I just hope you guys can be patient with me, since I have all sorts of deadlines to keep which take precedence at the moment.

But don’t worry, I will get around to it 😉

thanks for even responding! hope all the moving stuff goes super well. I only just started watching star trek so I have plenty of time to wait lol. it’s an awesome project, plus so many of them around here take YEARS and that’s usually around one movie. a whole television series? yeah, take your time.

Update or can someone take over this project?

I don’t know anything about current activity on this project, but I do know that a couple people on YouTube (including one who is also on the Topaz forums) is working on 90s Trek upscaling.

Independently, I’ve begun upscaling my DS9 and VOY DVDs to 1080p using some custom Topaz settings and then a polish export via DaVinci Resolve. The results aren’t as scene-specific as this effort, but they’re a huge step up from the DVDs and enough to let my family enjoy the episodes.

I follow the following steps:

  1. Rip MKV file from DVD.
  2. Run through Topaz to Deinterlace using Proteus 4 w the standard refocus setting.
  3. Run though Topaz using Apollo to make the video 30 fps - this is just something I do for all my files to ensure a universal framerate for my footage.
  4. Run through Topaz using a manual-setting Proteus 4 upscale to full hd 1080p.
  5. Add slight hallation effect in DaVinci Resolve and re-export - this reduces the file size too.
  6. Re-export using Handbrake to further reduce the file size, ending up around 2-2.5 GB per episode.
