I said that - I think I can do a pretty darn good job of it once my scaling algorithm is working properly. (probably about 1 year's R&D away) I can already turn 4:1:1 DV into a pretty good facsimile of the original 4:4:4, which is the first step along the way of scaling DV to HD... OK - it will never be as good as shooting HD, but the better I can get it.....

Uprezzing - some new test images

I've been doing some more work on the algorithm I was talking about earlier in this thread. Please don't get too excited as I'm still along way off a usable product, but I thought you'd like to see how it's progressing:

Comments (both positive and negative) are appreciated.

I look forward, Mr. Nattress, to your results.

I also would like clarification on the use of Shake, though just finding the reference will make me research this question at Apple. The only thing I can add besides questions is the mentioned use of Photoshop. There is an excellent 'format' used for fractal image growth called GF Print Pro, now on version 5. While not as perfect as capturing the image at the resolution you would like originally, it's quite good. Designed for print media, it works with both RGB and CMYK. The extreme downside is the fact that even with macro automation, you're talking about frame by frame.

One note: What drew me to this thread was that I have EXISTING footage of a subject who is dead. I need to incorporate it with HD footage. Between the footage being shot and now, there have been a few changes in DV reality- What we now call High Definition becoming more common than Standard Definition. Many of the posts in this thread seem to be smugly declaring that shooting HD to start with keeps one from being an idiot.

Does anyone really believe that what we now know as HD will not be supplanted by higher resolution cameras, indeed, by 3-D, tank 3-D and even cameras shooting for hologram projection stages? Do you even today want to compare the highest DV HD with kodachrome? How about 4X5 kodachrome? It makes IMAX seem small. I do doubt, though, that anyone could think of a reason to transport 4X5 film for motion pictures.

Jeez, what a strange rant. Anyway, I'm looking, as the originator of this thread was, for a good way to upres.

Has anyone used this? I am fond of their Magic Bullet Editors and Look Suite, myself.
