I dare to call this one a restoration instead of a simple clean-up as I usually do. Why is that? Here you will see.

Before you download the video please watch this (on youtube below) or download here a sample so I can avoid making screenshots (video shows it better anyway) - https://mega.co.nz/#!WN020AQS!4ArhzvP7J7DB1hnZYkFIkjA2JQ6iZ2lwg8lnNgZhoHQ

* Some time ago on some other thread I uploaded a compare sample of this already but it is outdated as it looks much worse than it does at the end *



Something to note -

1) Why not a DVD?

- I hate the outdated MPEG-2 compression which makes you to render stuff with about 9000 bitrate and it still looks worse than encoded with H.264 2500-3500 bitrate. So there's waste of bandwidth for me.
Also I don't want to do authoring and make menus because once I do I want to make it look cool and interactive sort of with After Effects animation. That takes way too much time.

2) Why 640x480?

- well, it's smaller file size that way and there is no considerable detail or pixels lost because as we know the source is shitty VHS which originally is even smaller resolution than 640x480.

If there's anything you want to know feel free to ask :-) All I can say is that it was pain in ass but at the end it turned out rather well in my opinion.

Brilliantly done ! Tell me you do this professionally.


Artists must pass on, but sometimes a mix of passion, good fortune, diligence, expertise, and meticulous labor can capture and restore some of the beauty they left behind.

Thanks.
No, that's just a hobby :) I like messing around with videos and trying out some new things.

As a sidenote, I forgot to mention that I filled in the blank gaps in the audio stream (Under Pressure & Keep Yourself Alive).

Holy balls of fire, this is probably the best we will ever get, considering how shitty the source is.
It looks very similar to the official videos GREAT JOB :D

Why isn't there a D...no, only joking. This looks incredible, thank you so much for your continued hard work.

And an even bigger thank you for not bothering with a DVD. This way we can truly appreciate your restoration attempt.
