Gigapixel AI vs. infognition Super Resolution or What to use to upscale SD to HD or 4K
Time

After some testing of the video app, I can safely conclude that I’m sticking with infognitions Super Resolution plugin whenever I want to upscale live-action footage for now on. Why is that, I hear you ask? Well, I decided to upscale the deleted scenes from Star Wars: Episode I and what I’ve got, in the end, was this: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1QxRpCOvvqQ3WGi0klL-yhfV_-d-oqpwe
See, I noticed that while Gigapixel does an outstanding job on close-ups, it falls flat on its face when it comes to faraway objects. As you can see, the faraway objects, at least in my opinion, look like cartoon blobs.

Harmy's STAR WARS Despecialized Edition HD - V2.7 MKV IS OUT NOW

The Despecialized Edition seems to be cropped from the movies’ original CinemaScope ratio because I noticed that some of Greedo’s subtitles in Episode IV, as well as some parts of the credits went off the edges of the screen. I am a person who likes to watch everything in its original aspect ratio, so do you know where I can find a Despecialized copy in the original CinemaScope ratio? Thank you.

Um, what are you talking about? Star Wars wasn’t shot in CinemaScope. Where exactly have you heard that Star Wars was filmed in CinemaScope?

The original academy ratio of 1.37:1 has been changed to 16:9, causing cropping and losing parts of the picture. The color changes to brighten the film also are drastically different and looks awful.

Please let me know how this process can be done. And I’d like to know how I can contribute.

Thanks

Um, what are you talking about? BATB was never shown in the academy ratio. See for yourself: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0101414/technical?ref_=tt_dt_spec

Ok, I’ve tried out the trial version and here are the results:

As you can clearly see, Gigapixel beats Super Resolution. To be honest, the results are enough to convince me to buy Gigapixel for continued use, but sadly it is too expensive for me.

Now, this is interesting:

newly remastered HD footage from the television series

That suggests that Deep Space Nine either is or was remastered in HD, but for whatever reason (probably the poor sales of TNG Blu-rays), it’s never been officially released before now.
