Film restoration/recovery Anonymous 09/01/2020 (Tue) 16:19:58 No.429
[JW08 ~ 08/27/2019] Recently started to dig up some "forgotten" films that need love in order to restore or redistribute them. Let me know if you want me to look up a specific film you're interested in, right now we just finished a second try restoration for Madness by Cesare Rau https://youtube.com/watch?v=PI_wY7EUU_M ...and next we want to move onto Cerco de Terror and Appuntamento a Dallas. (The first edition of Madness had a bit of color correction problems, it was too fucking dark at times) On 8chan someone requested Gillo Pontecorvo's La Grande Strada Azzurra, so we're currently working on that too.
[JW23 ~ 02/24/2020] >Fused under film assets There's a lot BD released out there with audio that is much inferior to older releases (most notably Laser Discs) but still with better video. Are there any ongoing projects of syncing/remuxing older audio tracks with the newer video? Looking into I see a lot of posts complaining about poor audio but nothing about syncing it with the better existing tracks.
>>430 Here's a good resource for cataloging audio quality among different releases. http://blah-ray.blogspot.com/
>>431 Interesting site. Maybe this is a bigger problem than I realized. I remember the DVD audio was synced and muxed as the primary audio track for Heart.of.Stone.1950.720p.BluRay.x264-GABE.mkv >The Bluray audio (2nd track) is denoised and has a metallic sound.

>>429 Wow, you finished working on this pretty fast. Groovy music on the opening scene. I saved the youtube autogenerated subs. They're kind of messy, but the timings could be helpful in creating English subs. Waiting for the site admin to allow .srt so I can post them.
>>434 Thanks man, dont worry about it. I'm working the subtitles right now, I'm about twenty minutes into the first edition, once those are done i'll just transfer them https://youtube.com/watch?v=Rw-p5cI3_lw Left the first draft up because I might work on the second one a bit more
>>435 >I'm working the subtitles right now very proactive
If you can find the ultra rare stuff there was a thread from the old board called Lost and Unobtainable Films https://web.archive.org/web/20190801221123/https://8ch.net/film/res/2402.html
>>437 thanks for the link. I wonder where everyone went, I have a few lost films too
>>438 >I have a few lost films too Really, which ones?
>>439 Recently I've been talking with the editor from Nocturno magazine and he asked me about an Alberto Lattuada film called L'Imprevisto starring Tomas Milian. Its lost apparently because he owns the only known copy, and its a tv rip. He saw it in a couple of festivals as well but no luck finding the film. Great polish poster tho
>>439 Then there's a couple of Italian films which I'm not very familiar with, one is called Paint your Policeman Yellow https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0205871/ which has very little info and theres Questa libertà di avere... le ali bagnate https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0067646/?ref_=nv_sr_1?ref_=nv_sr_1
>>441 It sounds like you're a real deal film collector. And by the way, did you say that you were looking for Deseos? I remember it was mentioned on the old board.
>>429 Is this Andrew Ruse from MDE fame? Why are you getting into film restoration?
>>429 Do you know anything about either of these films? The soundtracks are well-known by collectors (both recently re-issued) but the films are nowhere to be found. ZOO FOLLE (1974) Not on imdb! <The score was composed for an Italian TV movie in 1974 directed by Riccardo Fellini (brother of the most well-known Federico), originally released on Ricordi Label in the same year. Featuring Edda Dell’Orso and some of the best Italian session-men leader in the soundtracks and library landscape such as Maurizio Majorana and Antonello Vannucchi (from I MARC 4), Nino Rapicavoli on flute and Giuliano Sorgini himself to organ, keyboards, piano, drums and percussion. A PUGNI NUDI (1974) https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0071092/ <A young man comes out of a reform school properly reformed, but life outside will bring him to the underworld again. His second reform will be short-lived.
>>445 I'll ask some collectors to see if they have them, but there was a weird fall in online presence from italian collectors, dont know why. Most of them went rogue or their websites expired. Maybe its the economy, there is only one or two in my town. Whats with the J&B tag lol?
>>446 >there was a weird fall in online presence from italian collectors Interesting. I remember visiting an Italian trading site a few years ago but I can't remember the URL. I'm surprised the collecting community is active at all because a lot of trading has been replaced by torrenting. There are a number of Italian collectors on cinemageddon. That site has plenty of rarities, but most of the films you have mentioned are not there. Oh, and J&B seemed appropriate since it's in so many Italian movies Dump notes: J&B was a custom flag
>>447 I like the way you think lol, I work with an american writer and he always tells me that we should feature J&B to follow the trend.I've been trying to get into cinemageddon but I just gave up, I guess I'll put my time and money on finding actual film prints here in Italy.
>>448 Yeah cinemageddon is difficult to join. The mods briefly opened the site to new people in January (it had been closed for 2 years). I had a few invites but I gave them all away. If I ever get more I can send you one.
How do you colour correct these movies? What tools? Anything I need to know? Something like this would be easy enough, right? I can produce something with Photoshop in 5 seconds that looks alright, but that's obviously only for screenshots. Also, the start of this movie is like an alternative dimension version of Xavier: Renegade Angel. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GGQPIxHBDEA
>>450 >How do you colour correct these movies? I'm curious what OP uses. I've seen people recommend this tool made by a Star Wars fan. But I don't see a public link for it? He says "Please send me a PM, if you’re interested." https://originaltrilogy.com/topic/Color-matching-and-prediction-color-correction-tool-v13-released/id/18128 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5OtaGT3A8Bs <The tool can only work with images, but you use it to generate a LUT, and that LUT can be applied to an entire video.
>>451 I found a download link on page 35. (Windows version) https://ln.sync.com/dl/e51125f10/njry8grb-juw5i7vz-ttrapwci-cb4cxh9j/view/default/4077649850007 It's a big install. The required code compiler it downloads is over 1GB. The program takes an eternity to start up and is rather finicky. This is my first result... might need some practice.
>>452 I got it working now. I used the two images I posted earlier to create a matching model that I could use for other screenshots. For my first attempt I used one of the few captures from the film that didn't look like crap that I could find. It's simple to use. Just needs to be used in conjunction with another program that can take the data and apply it to an entire film, I think.
>>453 Used a better model. It takes less than a second to conjure each image once everything is sorted.
>>454 Yes the skin tone is looking better now. I wonder where that blue tint on the DVD came from?
>>455 The only release of the film that I know of is that crappy bootleg. The video is covered in scratches and other errors too. I don't know how it got the tint, but there's plenty else wrong with the video so I won't debate it. Fortunately the film has been restored by the Hong Kong Film Archive. The only problem is that it has been restored since at least 2007. Earlier this year the HKFA released Ann Hui's (who, funnily enough, acts in Love Massacre) film The Secret. HKFA's previous release seems to have come out in 2016, and before that in 2012. So, hopefully they'll come out with another movie in 2023, and maybe it'll be Love Massacre (The Spooky Bunch would also be cool), but it probably won't be. Another issue is that their release of The Secret doesn't even look good. Yeah, it's better than the previously available VHS rip, but the colours look weird.
>>456 Oh I see. It might be helpful to find stills from the HKFA restoration to try for the color correction. I couldn't find very many of them, but how about this one? https://screenhk.wordpress.com/2018/06/02/love-massacre-1981-review/
>>457 That's a promotional shot. So that particular frame doesn't appear in the film. I did try it out with the closest approximate, and the result was reasonably okay, but it looked terrible when I applied the settings for the other stills.
>>458 Too bad, I wasn't sure. Maybe there are no stills to be found. Well, if you ever process the full video let us know.
>>454 Great job! I didn't see much of Dre's software but it seems like it works out frame by frame, that's insane but it looks great. I've always wanted to do a frame by frame restoration because like you said Photoshop can greatly enhance a film.LUT's are fairly easy to use specially if you have a simple video editor. For a simple digital restoration I usually correct the colours & levels manually, sometimes I find a useful LUT that makes the job somewhat easier but in my opinion if you want to render and clean an entire film using one or various software you'd need dedicated heavy-ish horsepower. Or at least a nearly new, clean PC. I used to work on my brother's Mac laptop and that was a low-end wonder for digital edits. You can always process the film in segments if you don't want to strain a "cheap" PC I guess This is a quick single frame edit I made for one of my favourite scenes of Madness, (the croc statue) tho I can't remember if the before pic was already enhanced. Just imagine what an actual frame by frame restoration could look like.I take it you don't have much memory on your PC? I am dying of stress because I am in the same situation, all of my work I've done it in a shitty second hand laptop that will soon die, depression and alcoholism are seriously affecting me.
>>460 My PC is mid-range, I think. 16GBs of RAM, and an AMD Ryzen 5 2600X 6 core processor. Which software do you use? The Dre program can't fix a film by itself since it only outputs images and various data for importing to other software.
Davinci Resolve looks pretty cool. There's a free version with color correction so maybe you don't even have to pirate. DrDre's program might be a slower method unless you want to match a screencap exactly. But if you are experimenting with colors the Resolve LUT Browser looks like a better option. <New visual LUT browser makes it faster than ever to find, preview and apply LUTs. https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/products/davinciresolve/color https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dIQKEz2jzrw
>>448 >I've been trying to get into cinemageddon but I just gave up Are you still interested or no?
>>460 >>461 Do you guys know about AviSynth and Vapoursynth? You can do these type of jobs with it. You can apply what you've done to over multiple frames with a simple script. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AviSynth http://www.vapoursynth.com/about/ AviSynth is older/Windows only but has a simpler syntax. Vapoursynth works on other OSs and changed the syntax so some of the pre-made avisynth scripts still haven't been ported. Both will do what you need. You can find a GUI for avisynth here: https://github.com/gispos/AvsPmod/releases
>>465 I've used Avisynth as part of a ripping procedure (with MeGUI and AutoGK before that). But I've never used it for custom scripts. Once I tried to make "Zoetrope" clips but it kept giving me an error.
>>445 I found A Pugni Nudi if you're interested
>>467 Ah I see it now, thanks for mentioning it. All this time I assumed it was never posted anywhere but apparently it's been too long since I searched for it.
>>468 No prob, tho I'm very interested in Zoo as well. I used to listen to I Marc 4 and Edda all the time for years, now I transitioned to the master Cipriani since he is the main inspiration for a work in progress
>>468 Hey! I really need your help because I'm an unbelievable dumb fuck and missed the ratio threshold, can you help me contact a CG mod? You got my email right? I'm desperate because I was involved in several projects and it would be a shame to leave them all abandoned
>>470 Are you locked out of your account? Did you buy any upload credit?
>>471 Yeah, can't login, I was advised to seed until the ratio gets fixed but that could take months. I was just worried about the pending projects. I did buy upload
>>454 Did you ever finish working on Love Massacre? If so I am interested in watching your restored version.
>>474 So it's hard to find. Nature documentaries are probably lower priority to save compared to an actual film. At least we have the music I suppose Nice photo with Sorgini rocking the leather vest + leather pants. His Africa Oscura album is pretty good too, it's a moody contrast to Zoo Folle.
>redistribute I'm looking for an obscure jap film called Avec Mon Mari (1999), as far as i'm concerned its unobtaniable atleast in the US. Also looking for Waiting For The Flood (1990, which in all honesty is likely lost, VHS is out of print https://letterboxd.com/film/waiting-for-the-flood/
>>476 Looks like a Big Black album, I'll let you know if I find anything
Lately Karagarga is getting custom color uploads taken from Gaumont blurays that tend to have a lot of yellow.
>>478 Wow those are great, nothing worse than a film drenched in piss. Same problem with the Police Story release
>>477 I have found a single copy available on Amazon, I will purchase it and rip it for you.
>>480 Doing God's work anon
>>481 No problem. Avec Mon Mari will arrive from Japan, it'll take a bit of time to get to me in the States. I will try and rip it for you and upload it to secret-cinema.pw. I usually lurk this place, but decided to be more involved and post.
>>482 Thanks! Sounds great.
>>483 Avec Mon Mari has arrived, I will setup my equipment to rip it. You can contact me via xmpp @ lazarus@neko.im or lazarus@404.city
>>484 nigger just post a mega link like everyone else
I was thinking Cocksucker Blues might be the most famous film that hasn't been restored at all. I doubt it can be restored very well without going to the source. Given its reputation I was prepared to be shocked. Instead I got bored and bailed out halfway through. There's some sex and drugs but plenty of uneventful footage and forgettable (often barely understandable) dialogue. The Stones' star power evaporates as soon as they step off stage and start killing time before the next gig.
>>437 >Promises Written in Water He moved onto a new movie called April that's stuck in development hell. Why does he have to be a sap even at his age.
<Over the past year, I spent most of my free time restoring (and learning how to restore) this vintage 12 minute exhibitors reel from 1975. Finally finished it and posted it on YouTube. Here is the link to watch as well as more info below. Logan's Run: Selected Scenes '75 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=seAFOzrAds8 Logan's Run: Selected Scenes '76 (raw vs. recolor) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l3-ScJLFXqk <Created in November 1975, this is the earliest known compilation of footage from MGM's LOGAN'S RUN (released June 1976). Designed to be shown to theater owners and industry professionals, but deemed too slow paced. Instead it was further trimmed down resulting in the quicker paced Selected Scenes '76 (running only 7 minutes long). <Since it was never intended to be seen by paying audiences, quite a few "spoilers" are included. It also contains clips from deleted scenes, as well as alternate camera angles of familiar sequences from the released film. The music is from ICE STATION ZEBRA (1968) because Jerry Goldsmith had not yet finished composing the score for LOGAN'S RUN. <Never issued on any home video format, Selected Scenes '75 is scanned and restored from a badly damaged vintage 35mm film print. Perhaps the only print left in existence.
>>488 Great work anon! Always neat to see things like this
>>484 Could you also post a mega link? Thanks in advance.
>>484 Hopefully the requester got it somehow...
>>490 I'm still alive anon, I'll post the mega link. I was looking for a platform where I could host a file of that type, you've just reminded me. I will rip the film and drop a mega link this week, I promise.
>>491 I did, I've just been busy with work lately. Being a video game tester drives me crazy.
>>493 >Being a video game tester That sounds awful
>>494 Oh believe me, it is. I work for one of the worst, EA. I'm only here because it pays more and is full-time compared to other jobs in my area.
>>494 Here is the film: https://mega.nz/file/E3hWma4A#qHxT0zbVtz7C4Ddw25YJJREROSrBkU-b7KvP_EpPUfI Note: The audio and picture quality is not the best, but I know you were looking for this film and would like to see it right away. I'm going to keep trying to convert/stream the film via VLC. I attempted to rip it via Handbrake but I think there's some kind of encryption that messes with it through Handbrake.
>>496 If there's encryption on the disc, you could try DVD Decrypter before ripping
>>496 Just use MakeMKV to get a straight mux
>>498 I run a Linux system, that won't work. :/
>>499 Dude LInux is where the whole scene got it's start. Look around.
>>499 Here you go. The essential MKV program. https://mkvtoolnix.download/downloads.html
>>499 MakeMKV supports GNU/Linux, you just have to build it yourself https://www.makemkv.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=224

Did we lose this guy? I don't remember him posting after the domain change.
>>572 We lost pretty much everyone. But we'll rise again.
>>572 i think he is on most of the main private trackers
I'm back :) Starting a new scavenger project while I cool down on the other ones (Deserto Bianco/Mio Mare and a few others) "Deserto di Fuoco" from 1971. As soon as my business partner showed me the intro I was in, and now I won't stop working until we get a proper resolution so that we can enjoy this unique opening as God intended.
>>808 Yeah that's a cool intro. Do you have any leads on a film print? The title theme really stands out. I wasn't sure if I'd heard it before, but it's the first track on this big comp of Edda Dell'Orso https://www.discogs.com/Edda-DellOrso-Al-Cinema-Con-Edda-DellOrso/release/484405

I wanted to upload the pics from IMDB but I forgot hehe sadly Edwige doesn't use this dress in the film... Maybe she does in an uncut print? One can hope, again...
>>808 Thank you for the work! Glad that you are back and open for suggestion
I always like these side-by-side restoration clips. Here's Сказка о звёздном мальчике (1983) restored by http://d-cinema.by/ from a source which has a lost much of its color to the pink fade. https://invidious.tube/watch?v=ZQPG-G3xkj8 I don't think this film has subtitles anywhere, but it looks interesting. Soviet kids sci-fi based on the writings of Oscar Wilde. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0213249/ There are more restoration clips and complete Belarussian films (without subs) at https://www.youtube.com/c/BelarusfilmDigital/videos

Have any of you guys tried Topaz Video Enhance? Usually I see it applied to early silent footage, upscaling, adding color and interpolating frames to smooth out the footage. The results can be surprisingly good. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC1gVCrX5uEFc0s_8TIYGqmw ("AI" is mostly a marketing term -- it's better to call it "machine learning".)
>>1856 Is it online?
>>1857 I downloaded a pirated version but haven't installed it yet
>>1856 I've used their photo programs and i find the old non-AI versions yield better results, at least the DeNoiser and Sharpener ones, the newer versions took down some comparison tools and streamlined the options to add a general AI slider. Many programs have been fucked in the butthole with this "AI" fad, they were already simple enough to use but with this new wave there's even less options, i fear the actual userbase is not as mentally sharp as i thought. In terms of the Video Enhance one, i've seen results for their 4k conversions/upscale and it leaves tons of artifacts like outlines and mushy texturing that looks like beauty filters, also a pervasive digital fine grain that looks odd in places like skin tones or foliage. Like everything it should be used with moderation, 60FPS doesn't look good with sources that were under 20FPS (like old timey reels) because the technique just multiples frames and makes variations with motion, so low FPS videos suddenly looks like heavily motion-blurred video game footage. The coloring aspect i didn't know, that does sound promising and the only one i can think of because that does save massive amounts of time.
>>1860 >it leaves tons of artifacts like outlines and mushy texturing that looks like beauty filters, also a pervasive digital fine grain that looks odd in places like skin tones or foliage. That's too bad. I haven't actually watched a full film that's been restored like this. I've only seen short clips and screencaps. The person who made Begotten for KG converted the Topaz video output to PNGs and then touched them up with Irfanview and Premiere. From the caps that project looks quite good considering the extremely grainy source, but I didn't actually watch it (and the bluray is supposedly in the works but who knows).

>>1874 >converted the Topaz video output to PNGs and then touched them up with Irfanview and Premiere That's a double step, intensive but sounds good, he probably moved contrast to pull detail out of the shadows. I recall watching that movie many years ago back in the old, old place but i almost felt asleep, it is an artsy direction with the purposely high key grainy footage so in that case i don't think he had much trouble. >I haven't actually watched a full film that's been restored like this The Gay Porn Acting without the Porn community has some Topaz 4K conversions and few 8K scene upscales if you really want to see what a normal, standard upscale looks like. Here's screencaps comparing the same scene in the classic wholesome, totally non-gay and definitely not awkward dialogue sequence. Because these flicks had native speeds of 30FPS from the typical digital camcorders the 60FPS conversions are not that jarring, 24FPS can still cut it but in old timey sources that have FPS below the 18 count, like 16, 12 or even 8, the footage starts to look jarring. I haven't seen it but i guess if you apply motion blur the program will overwork and produce, i suppose at best, scenes akin to artsy 90s asian action sequences if original footage had considerable camera movement. Interpolation software and procedures have greatly advanced in recent years so that quality gap in low FPS footage can be somewhat narrow now if the original camera position was static, but we are still a bit far from decently upscaling low-resolution footage.
>>1874 I re-edited the trailer for Begotten using his footage so I had to watch that version several times next to the old trailer footage (which wasn't too far from the best source out there) and its a major improvement. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XGYXpPjdbNU I think this was the perfect storm, Topaz doesn't do well with 480 artifacts but Begotten worked because of the stark black and white. There's a DVD to 4k upscale of Blood In Blood Out that blew up on YT and there's quite a few artifacts, somewhat unnoticeable if you just watch the movie. I've been upscaling music videos with Video Enhance but there's definitely a limit, I think I might start to do them scene by scene to get the best results, still undecided if I should do Madness again, upscaling each scene this time...
I love doing production stills with gigapixel, here's Death of Yazdgerd from 300Kb to 11Mb which seems kind of excessive. >>2654 And De Mille's Male and Female, 36Mb (LOL) https://mega.nz/file/IG1SED7B#oc2f-27uQjGzmdbSOlwoI2DFvK1HSOIoHzowkeAcsfw
Here's a fanmade restoration of an AFI documentary about cinematography featuring interviews with the likes of Vittorio Storaro and Haskell Wexler. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0105764/ For a documentary that celebrates high achievements in film photography, the original DVD transfer is barely above VHS quality. This restoration project replaced all film c;lips with contemporary HD transfers from Bluray, TV or Web. The remaining content was upscaled using Gigapixel. https://odysee.com/@film:e/Visions-of-Light---The-Art-of-Cinematography-(1992):7 Since this documentary was made in the pre-internet 1990s, with the participation of Hollywood industry groups that want to promote their product, the scope of discussion is mostly limited to well-known American films. Regardless, it's interesting to hear cinematographers speaking about their visual inspirations, career experiences and creative approaches. There's another fanmade restoration from Deus Ex Film Prof that was deleted from youtube. His version might be more advanced because he superimposes the interview segments atop the film clips. https://twitter.com/DeusExFilmProf/status/675471763875213313 https://secret-cinema.pw/torrents.php?torrentid=34653 (7 GB) https://t.me/NAcinema/903 (900 MB)
Here's a poster restoration, there was a nasty watermark and you can see a bit of a shadow so if anyone can clean it better feel free!
>>2676 Ah, seems like I missed a spot on the upper right, oopsie... And this next one I couldn't clean the watermark without fucking up the background
>>2673 Neat documentary. Good restoration work as well.
>>2670 How do you do that?

>>2688 Tweaking around with Gigapixel AI, works wonders if you have a fairly decent copy like with >>2676 The De Mille upgrade was fairly simple because the source (taken from the Bonn Festival screening) was already quite good although a bit foggy, Giga only enhanced it further! Here's the original for comparison:
>>2692 LOL I didn't mean to use italics, just ' 'quotes' '
Might not be the best place to ask, but figured I'd try anyway. In 1955 Lee Sun-Fung directed a film titled 寒夜 aka Han Ye aka Cold Nights aka It Was a Cold Winter Night. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0205113/ https://www.themoviedb.org/movie/176323-han-ye This film has made multiple "best of Chinese language" lists, but the film appeared to have been lost, with the only known copy belonging to the Hong Kong Film Archive. However, two versions were uploaded to YouTube sometime last year (both of these have been removed at this point): a 240p version https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g8JtjfN9jV4 and a 480p version with a watermark https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N5iSFirbpPg I downloaded both versions before they were removed from YouTube and I have uploaded them to this mega folder. https://mega.nz/folder/dDF2BZrb#ej8C-XsdmygClo-q9iFsGQ Would someone be able to combine these two sources to create a 480p version without the watermark?
>>2709 Are you sure the 480p is accurate? It could just be a mask from the watermark itself. Regardless, thank you for catching it on time!
>>2710 I'm not sure. I'm not real good with resolutions. I was just going off the dimensions. However, comparing the two screenshots I included, it does look like the 480p version could just be the 240p stretched out and with added pillowboxing
>>2711 pillarboxing*
>>2709 I agree that it looks like the same video upscaled (or re-encoded) But since you bring up logo removal, I know people have had good results with InpaintDelogo https://github.com/Purfview/InpaintDelogo Here is the short guide posted at karagarga ______ 0) Read help/manual(in script) about parameters mentioned below. 1) Run this function to get "Loc" values: InpaintLoc(Loc="100,100,-100,-100"). Adjust "Loc" crop parameters around logo (aka "Left,Top,-Right,-Bottom"). Use even(mod2) numbers. 2) Prepare the "mask" manually, or start InpaintDelogo with "Automask=1" and "Analyze=2", automask result can be adjusted with"aMix". Some basic delogo parameters for non-transparent logo: InpaintDelogo( mask="D:\mask.bmp", Automask=0, aMix=0, Loc="100,100,-100,-100", Mode="Inpaint") Subtitle extractor parameters: SubsMask2Img( ImgDir="", CorrTh=0.8, SubTune=235, SubMinDur=12, SubSuspect=0, ImgType="png", ImgInflate=0, ImgInvert=0, ImgSize=1 )
