Saw this ad on facebook. This has to be total bullshit right?
Especially at the 1m mark with the 2 women in the car.. There's no way it would 'know' to add freckles and pores and armpit stubble to the woman on the left, right? I can see this being a thing but would expect the results to be a little more weird looking, almost cartoony as its not going to be able to add detail, just sorta 'sharpen' what detail it has... Has anyone messed with this or something like this?
Only one way to find out...Pay the $200!
AI "dreams up" details
There is an app called Remini to enhance old blurry photos, it only works on faces though
looks like they took 8k footage, downgraded it, made it the before, added back the original footage as the after then $$ Profit!!!!
Try the free trial muppet.
I don't know how this software works specifically, but there is a technique called 'super-resolution' (OpenCV has an implementation), that takes multiple frames with slight movement between them and builds up a higher resolution image from them. It sort of solves what the underlying image must be based on the variations in pixel values for a given feature across multiple frames. So the whole CSI "enhance" does exist to some degree if you have multiple video frames.
If you then morphed that high resolution image using optical flow from the original video, you could probably get a decent result. It would probably need to be a relatively static scene to work.
Neither of these are AI, but there might be some GAN magic involved in blending edges and inpainting in fast changing scenes. I don't really understand how that stuff works so just a wild guess.
As for this TopazLabs software. I think Ash Thorpe was really impressed by this on one his podcasts. Sounded like he tried it with good results.
