    Thief cutscenes- Better quality

    Hey taffers (meant as a term of endearment of course)

    I’ve been working on up-resing some of the thief videos- as what we have are a little less than Stella quality. Some are turning out quite well and thought I’d share some here if anyone’s interested:

    https://youtu.be/aTLCmwVTTC8 - The eye is blind: Thief Gold
    https://youtu.be/ZHI4sIp7Ee0- Ending : Thief Gold

    Thief 2 videos are proving a bit trickier but the process is smoothing out a lot of the compression artefacts

    https://youtu.be/F3wXxz8UE9o - “Not poetry; Prophecy” - Thief 2

    Just a bit of fun but thought you guys might enjoy!

    Thanks. But are you aware that there are already, I believe, two hi-res movie packs floating about?

    Not at all- where are they living?! Also couldn’t find any on You Tube when I went searching

    Ah I found them - I see those have just been interpolated to get the frame rate up - My focus was on improving the quality

    I did it with the german versions a while ago. Interpolation with Topaz Gigapixel AI to 960p(rendered in 1080p for Youtube), then increasing framerate to 60p with DAIN App(in the meantime more tools for that came up).
    I asked Bentraxx a while ago for remastering audio, but haven´t heard from him later...
    If someone has interest to make the scenes a pack for the games, you can PM me.

    Now if we could just do something about the 8-bit hiss in the audio.

    Well, somehow the audio was improved in the limited possibilites such old files have.
    Some tools exist.

    Can't hurt to have another pass at them with new upscaling technology. I've seen some really decent upscaling on episodes of Star Trek Deep Space 9. That software should be able to do a good job on the Thief movies.

    These are definitely some words.
