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.
I recently discovered that the developers of Gigapixel AI have begun testing a video upscaling app. For the moment, it’s only for Windows 10, but during the beta test, you can try it out for a non-commercial purpose free of charge. For the curious, here’s a link: https://videoai.topazlabs.com/
Now for the BIG question … can anyone figure out a way to get these off of Disney+?
Well, someone ripped the first episode of The Mandalorian in 4K HDR on Blutopia. I’m sure 4K rips of the Star Wars movies will follow shortly.
Is it too early to ask how the new 4K presentation compares to 4K77 for example?
When I decided to compare the Blu-Ray with the sample, I discovered an alteration that seems very puzzling. See for yourself:
No, you’re not seeing things, Disney removed Mufasa’s teeth at one point during “Circle of Life”. Does somebody have the Special Edition DVD so we can confirm that these teeth were removed for the 2002 IMAX re-release?
Due to a lack of time, I’m putting this project on a hiatus until 2020. I’m not sure when it will be resumed, but hopefully it will be before July.
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?
Looking over the movies shown in this format at https://www.screenx.co.kr/movies/previously.php I see a lot of Asian movies. Is there any kind of ScreenX presence at all in the US?
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.
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
Starting bid is $699 and the Buy It Now price is $1399
Bumping this thread to say that I’ve reached out to a user on the spleen who has experience restoring cartoons to HD, having done for example a 720p restoration of the 2003 TMNT cartoon and a 1080p restoration of Extreme Ghostbusters. Hopefully, I’ll get some much-needed feedback from him.
The first pass on episode 1 “Ghosts R Us” is now done. If I’ve done things correctly, I should have sent a copy in the PMs to all who replied to this topic so far.
The pilot has been restored on the blu ray release of ghostbusters 1 and 2 4k steel book edition, I can confirm its on the disc since I own this recent release.
Need me to send the one already restored?
No thanks, YoshiKiller2S already has sent me a copy. Thanks for the offer though.
Do you need the 1080p HD version of the pitch pilot? Because I can send it to you if you want?
Why, yes. That would be excellent.
If you’re interested in helping out, feel free to do so.
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.
You can download it for a free trial and it has no limitations.
No limitations, besides a 30-day limit you mean?
Sorry for the inactivity, but I think now is a good time to start a fundraiser so that I can buy Gigapixel AI and compare it against infognitions Super Resolution. Just donating $1 will help. PM me for details.
Excellent! I gotta ask just one question: what language is the title?
I know that all chapters of the serial and the sequel were riffed by Rifftrax. It’s a shot in the dark, but maybe it’s the uncut version for the 1943 serial. Maybe somebody can chime in for conformation.
EDIT: nevermind, they only riffed the Batman and Robin serial.
Okay, instead of just bumping the tread, maybe you can explain what you are referring to in the first post.
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.
