Thread: Interpolating old film/NASA footage with aritifical intelligence

  1. Talking Interpolating old film/NASA footage with aritifical intelligence

    For some months now I have been messing around with a program called DAIN-APP. Depth-Aware video frame INterpolation (DAIN)

    This program uses the GPU and a trained neural network to analyse two frames and generated 'new' ones.
    To basically interpolate footage from 12 to 24, 30 to 60. It supports 2, 4 or 8 times interpolation, so 6 to 24, 15 to 60 is also possible... you get the point.

    And because a lot of old NASA 16mm film footage was shot at 6 to 12fps, this seems like a primate candidate to interpolate to a higher frame rate.

    Here is an example of interpolating 6fps to 24fps:

    Initially I added music to them, but most people just want it bare-bones with the comms. To experience the footage without any clutter, as if they were there.

    When possible I try to synchronize footage with photos and the TV feed taken at the same time. I had many ideas to add text, explanations, extra info.

    But most people just prefer original mission-only content, anything else just gets in the way of the experience. They're aimed at space-history enthusiasts, who mostly know what they are looking at anyway and just want an as clean as possible view.

    Here are some video's I've made so far:

    Seriously good stuff. Have NASA not done this themselves? Have you sent this to them? It's not like they don't include emhanced footage on their websites.

    Thank you guys!

    An older video that I plan to remake without music, when I get access to more complete TV footage.
