The Angry Beavers Seasons 3 & 4 Restoration Project (HELP NEEDED!)

Recommended Posts

Hi-dee-ho, Maynard here

 

I'm looking to remaster The Angry Beavers using the Shout Factory DVDs and AviSynth filters TComb and WarpSharp.

Here are some samples of the filters in effect:

There's just one problem standing in the way.

The filter I'm using to remove the Dot Crawling seems to be merging with the wrong frame:h4puHkY.png

 

Each frame in the original footage has an identical one right after that, where if you blend them together, their individual dots cancel each other out. Is there any way to blend the frames with their identical variations instead of the different frame after?

 

I'm looking only to restore Seasons 3 & 4, as 1 & 2 don't have these issues, and are just blurry (as if the camera was near-sighted.)

 

On a side note: Are there any other filters I should add?

Well, what you are doing doesn't look bad at all so far. There are a lot of people here with DVD source encoding experience.

Do you have a vob sample of the source you can share?

Well, not a .vob, but an .mkv:

Hopefully it lets you download the raw file too and it doesn't get taken down too soon.

EDIT: for some reason, it censored my link.

Actually, I don't think this link works for me. Is there a different link I can use to get the file?

Always use mpeg2source as your frame server in AVISynth. If you use anything else you WILL get out of sequence frames every so often. 

 

Anyway, here’s your idea:

 

SeparateFields()

evn=SelectEven().Dup(threshold=8, maxcopies=1, blend=true, show=false)

odd=SelectOdd().Dup(threshold=8, maxcopies=1, blend=true, show=false)

interleave(evn,odd)

Weave()

 

lower the the Dup factor if you find you’re missing very small movements. You’ll get less effective dot crawl removal though.

 

Full disclosure: this code is lifted from a videohelp post that I remembered reading.

      I wanna see how good the quality on these sets are (I'm looking to maybe restore this series too, the DVDs look like VHS footage and the audio is mono)
      I would vastly appreciate whoever is willing to upload these for me.

      I'm having problems on the deinterlace of an anime, problems like the image, I've used the config down below, it worked for most of the animes I've tested it with few scenes having artefacts, but in that particular source almost all scenes look bad, I don't have experience with deinterlace, so I was configuring just the way that looked better for me. There is a way to fix that?

      Hello, anyone have the Dragon Ball Z Kai Nicktoons TV-Rip from C-W Version?
    • By DARKWINGDUCK287
      Tonight at 12am ET, Teen Nick is airing the very first episode of KaBlam! and I have no way to capture/record it! If someone could PLEASE grab this for me I would appreciate it immensely! I don't care if it's in HD, SD is fine! I don't need subtitles, dual audio or anything special and I can most certainly remove any commercials myself! I just really want a copy of this broadcast, as mine is not very good.... I hope I've posted this in time, I only JUST found out it was coming on. If anyone can help me with this PLEASE let me know! Thanks in advance!!!
