Angry Video Game Nerd (AVGN) - SD Episodes restored in HD (WIP)
Time

A lot of the gameplay in the early episodes was pretty poorly recorded (using composite and a DVD recorder). If you wanted you could probably re-create it in emulation and get much better quality.

Good point. I mean, the first episode “Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest” is literally just gameplay footage with no footage of the Nerd whatsoever. The gameplay footage may not be suitable for Video Enhance AI, but instead upscaled using a Nearest Neighbour algorithm such as PointResize in Avisynth.

Toy Story 2020 Theatrical "$5 Fan Favorites" Re-Release Recreation (a Work In Progress)
Time

I think saying “print” is wrong in this day and age. I mean, unless you have evidence otherwise, any modern showing of Toy Story or any other film is highly likely a DCP (Digital Cinema Package). And another thing, you say print in a way that implies that every theater chain gets its own unique version. And lastly, please update the first post to remove the mention of 60 fps.

Nice work so far (although it would look even better color-corrected)!

Assuming the audio track on that print is 5.1 (or Dolby Stereo Digital, as it was billed back then), do you plan to capture it that way?

I’m a complete newbie when it comes to audio, but I think the audio on the print is stereo.
However, the DVD release of this short includes a 5.1 track, so I’m planning to mux that into the final! I’ll also include the print’s original track for completeness’ sake.

There is a way to know for sure.
Print audio
If your print has a grey area between the sprocket holes labelled with the Dolby Double-D logo in the middle like the picture above, then that means that the print has a Dolby Surround track.

The Real Ghostbusters - The Complete Series in HD [on hiatus]
Time

repn1999 said:

Can anyone provide me with a complete copy of the real ghostbusters series in 1080p?

I wish I can help you, but due to the current crisis, I haven’t been able to find motivation to continue this project. I want to finish what I started, but the way I see it, I can’t do it alone. Any help, both technical and financial would be much appreciated. What I mean by financial help is that I am considering buying Topaz Video Enhance AI to speed up the process, however the $199 price is too much for my wallet. But if nothing else comes up, I can resume work on this in 2021.

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

Over on Blutopia, you can now enjoy the first season of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine in 4K with a 1080p release coming in the future. Personally, I’m waiting for the 1080p release as the 4K release apparently has some aspect ratio issues, so if anyone can share their thoughts on this upscale, I’d appreciate it.
