Upscaling a video shot on film is far easier than upsampling a digital video. And AI upscaling is an amazing potential application (as seen on game mods too and done well like FF9's Moguri Mod, which used ESRGAN and is available for free as a Python CLI program to play around with), but it does a long way to mature as well.

 

There are quite a number of open source AI upscaling programs around to use.

YouTube lets you download the original versions of videos you uploaded on Google Takeout (however I don't think LTT has access to the NCIX YouTube channel anyway). Also if you are downloading a video as normal straight from YouTube and need the best quality version, I wouldn't recommend most YouTube downloader websites, as they nearly always only download H.264 versions. VP9 and AV1 are available for your video, and being more modern, those codecs artifact more by blurring than blocking. Also for some reason, on that particular video, YouTube uses a higher bitrate for the VP9 version.

What you downloaded:

Review of the FW900 when?!

Saw it, and yeah, thought the same thing. For anyone uninformed, it's the holy grail of CRTs. 16:10 aspect ratio, and can manage 1440p at 80hz. ON A CRT. And thanks to being a CRT, perfect response times, deep blacks and OLED like colour reproduction (thanks to the Trinitron tube).

I see you are using the MSI Z16P. There is a major flaw with this laptop. I purchased 4 with 3070ti but when running on battery power this 3070TI is slower then the integrated intel iris GPU cause it is keeping the memory running at 810mhz. and pluggin the charger and disconnecting it again even drops the memory speed to 405 mhz most of the times. Also the clock speeds often do not scale and are stuck at 210mhz. 

 

see also this thread i started but MSI is impossible to contact. can you please test this out also with furmark for example how it operates when running on battery power? I love this laptop but they need to fix this perfomance bug asap.

Can you please help me to get this issue tested an notified to MSI. im very curious if you dont have this problems. i purchased 4 of these laptops and they all have this issue. And i already installed the latest bios from the msi site.

Hot take - all of these look bad when blown up on a big display (55" OLED in my case). It doesn't matter if it's still or in motion, person or landscape, it all looks off, almost like an uncanny valley. The only good way to do this is carefully with animated content. There are some outlier examples, but watching more than say... a cherry picked 20 second clip shows that... you might as well watch the original 99% of the time instead of these things that just go through what is basically a very impressive, but flawed filter.

Linus... I'm sorry, but c'mon. 10:34 - obvious and jarring flickering movement on the ladder in the "remaster" and you're going to say its "undoubtedly a better viewing experience"?

Im glad im still seeing Harry1010UK comments still on youtube, atleast i know that Portal 2 SFM animator is still alive and kicking.

 

For the video tho, if it wasnt for the "painting" feeling near the header in the intro there, thats really good quality for upscaling, do note i rarely use/seen it in games or for other videos.

I've seen much better AI upsamples than this first attempt travesty.

The second attempt is rather okay, not great.

 

Also, I still recommend Core i7-12700H variants of any laptop, including the sponsored MSI laptop which also includes that variant, anything else higher is unnecessary

I tend to make dumb mistakes sometimes (thanks to ADHD) so corrections are always welcome.

9:06 doesn't work because the video wasn't uploaded in 60p, so we can't actually see the difference.

I'm not overly surprised by the results considering an AI creating 108 pixels from each pixel and guessing each one's colour and motion.

The fact it even looks like a face is impressive. Typically when this is done it's in stages with sharpening and cleanup at each step. 240 to 480 then manually clean up the image with filter layers, 480 to 720, 720 to 1080 etc so you don't end up with a smeared mess. The less deviation between steps gives the AI smaller guesses (aim small miss small)

this works the same for motion and frame interpolation, going straight from 30 to 60 is foolish if you have the time or horsepower. Create 1 frame per 3 and you are only scaling 30 to 40 but the motion accuracy is more precise, 40 to 50 and 50 to 60 then give you more accurate steps between frames even if 2 of the 3 frames are guessed changes by the end.

That's the thing with AI upscaling; the parts it does well, it does really well, which makes the parts it trips over really obvious.

Why did you choose CRF 0 (and then wonder why the files are so big) and not ProRes?

When i upscale with Topaz, i always export in ProRes and then make a transparent encode with x264 and a CRF value that is suitable for the content.

Not gonna lie. Upscaled Linus looks like something that belongs in original Silent Hill.

Their software are some experimental crap. It basically goes like 1 good frame and then 1 bad frame. At the end you'll just ended up with an unusable crap. I don't understand how are people paying $200 for being a genuine pig.

Because that experimental tech is cool for people in the industry for years, that one good frame might make someone impressed still…

I’d bet you’re in the phones and tablets category (my domain haha)

When used properly with small change steps it works well, the problems that most people experience is due to big changes all at once rather than the more time intensive small step method. With an AI engine and professional programmers you would expect them to do this automatically as script but it would take much much longer

So I use this program. Would not mind tech channel maybe what Hardware is good value to run this. I am currently running this on old game rig at winter.  If their was better comb of hardware other then just buing ultra high-end hardware. Running on 5820k and Gigabyte 1080 extreme(Extreme = water cooling and high base gpu clocks).
