Soon at Zapread I will present my new project (I hope you like it) - which, by the way, will be connected with a series of entries about films ;)
A long time ago I decided to download an old movie under Public Domain license from Wikipedia for testing and torture it in the form of automatic solutions that would improve some things.
He was enlisted for improvements:
- Imagemagick to scale and improve the contours of film frames
- VapourSynth to interpolate the frame rate to 60 FPS.
- Colored by ... https://github.com/richzhang/colorization
Of course it's a tech-demo, but it shows the direction in which the improvement of films, especially the classic ones, from the 30s to the 60s can take place.
