Re: Sliders: New DVD with Correct Episode Order, Fan Upscaling Experiments
Well. Let's not go nuts. The stairs on Quinn's house are clearing giving the AI a lot of trouble in the upscale. The Sorcerer scenes suffer badly when there are high levels of light that blow out the character's faces in the highlights.
It is probably fixable and I know Transmodiar will have thoughts, but I'm going to refer back to what Transmodiar said when I told him how terribly my first draft outline of SLIDERS REBORN had turned out -- let's just aim to get matters from terrible to adequate.
I think it's a big deal. First off, what you've done is a big upgrade. Second of all, topaz, and other algorithms similar are only going to get better. If that is in year, what, 3, imagine in 4-5 years what it will be like. Maybe it won't linearly get better and maybe it's done 80 percent of its gains. But I know it's definitely gonna get even better.
When you add some other playing with the colors, saturation etc etc, to the mix (as we know the pilot and first season is a bit "faded") I think something pretty damn superb is possible.
So yea, I think this opens up the Sliders 2.0 era. The content can become much fresher and modern.
