Since I have a background in image analysis and enhancement, I thought I would have a go at enhancing the GOUT to high definition using a super resolution algorithm. Rather than simply upscaling the frames, a super resolution algorithm uses neighbouring frames to reconstruct a high definition frame.
The goal of this project:
Create a 1080p high definition anamorphic version of the GOUT in the form of one 25 GB mkv file for each film.
Next to having significantly increased detail, the upscales will have significantly less grain and aliasing.
The films will have the GOUT color palette, and will stay true to it’s source, the master tapes that spawned the Star Wars Trilogy - The Definitive Collection laserdiscs, and of course the GOUT DVDs themselves.
The NTSC versions of the 2006 Star Wars bonus DVDs aka the GOUT.
