Thanks to Sikke for the excellent source. You can view it here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M7dzhGdxgJ0

I reduced a great amount of small dust spots and scratches and run some general 'anti-compression' scripts (like I usually do for compressed videos).
I didn't get rid of the occasional big scratches (like fat lines over the screen) because it would take too much time to manually correct them all, it would be frame by frame painting work. I haven't got as much time unfortunately.

Watch this if you want -

I tried to do something similar, but your work is better ;-) Thanks, anyway, Sikke wrote me a PM and said me that he will upload a UHD transfer of his reel. Thanks again

Amazing, and thanks to Sikke for sharing it!
If I remember correctly, the video was shot on regular tape right? Either way, storing it on 16mm would make sense no matter what.

^ I'd say it's definitely film. No way a tape looks like this.

You're a genius, Chief ! This is better than the promo. Many thanks. Love the close-ups on Brian's genius playing !


>>Queen were my fave band in 76 and 77. Seeing Bo Rap on Top Of The Pops got me into pop/rock music (I was so impressed).
I taped the Ham Odeon 75 gig on BBC radio (may have been the repeat in 76) and played a lot - still my fave gig by Queen>>>

You are a genius chief!
I wish you could work with QP in the restoration of some videos like "Another one bites the dust" for example.
Thanks a lot for sharing this video in such quality. It really is amazing what you do to these videos.

Would you consider 'cleaning up' the damaged frames by using the corresponding pixels from adjacent frames? Or would that stray too much into revisionism for you?

As I said, it would take too much time. If Sikke decided to share the original file, I think I would do that though.

Whoops, I glanced past that - my eyes naturally went straight to the screenshots. I'd give it a shot myself, but I don't have the necessary software.

Bob,

Do you think your 8mm master of Montreal '77 would benefit from restoration by Chief Mouse?

It's not mine.

And clearly Chief Mouse could turn a turd into a juicy steak.



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.
