HaDenGUp-scaling the frames and removing blur using Topaz A.I. Gigapixel
#11
Hey this is a good idea; it looks like there's a lot of upscaling code out there and I had a look around for something free that would work similarly. The most promising thing I found is using TensorLayer:

You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login to view.

And this is the specific upscaling script example that's in the examples:

You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login to view.
You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login to view.

Haven't set it up but I'll try to see how well it works.

For some examples, here's the SRGAN project before it was integrated into the above links:

Workflow is simple, convert as usual but before creating the video, upscale merged folder and use those frames to create the video.

what is meaned with "upscale merged folder" ?

He basically makes a new folder with all the images he upscaled, and uses that to compile the video.

from the merged folder ? how could i upscale them ?

After you convert, you take the images in the merge folder, and put them through the program to upscale. You should not rename the files when up scaling, but just have the program save it to another folder. Then, once all up scaling is done you take those images and rename the folder "merged" and replace your old folder. Then run the bat file to convert to mp4 file

And what program can is use for upscaling ?

If the replaced face was slightly blurred and the dst image was sharp, would upscaling it help to sharpen the face? Or would it just make it larger, but with the same relative blur?

Yes it likely will help.

@HaDenG Gigapixel keeps crashing on me... it only upscales ~500 photos / 76000+... very frustrating and not functional for me.

In my case, it helps with blur and sharpens the replaced face.

Hmm, that's odd I've never experienced any crash with my GTX1080 although I only import 1500 pics max to Gigapixel in one batch. It takes a while anyways.
What's your GPU by the way?

I am working on new Emilia fake. I will post the result here for sure. It may take a while though as final video's duration will be 04:45.
I may post some frames.

Has anyone tried gigapixels' video upscaler? Apparently gets better temporally stable results..

I am using a 1080ti. I will try scaling 2x instead of 3x. It just crashes with no errors like it was never opened.

Where is this program? I am currently trying to upscale each frame
