It's probably better to do the frame interpolation very last (if at all). Also, this last time I used ffmpeg's frame interpolation instead of butterflow and while I think it looked better in some places, it definitely messes up pretty bad in others.
I don't know about others, but I love the big exposure boost version.
I second that, but maybe toned down just slightly.
The term denoise is a bit misleading. One primary way to achieve the smoother, more natural look is to add dither which adds a small amount of noise to the picture. This takes two colors that are close to each other but are visually distinguishable and moves them closer to one another by moving some pixel values up or down a bit. This has the effect of blurring boundary lines. This greatly reduces compression artifacts like blob and banding.

Hi Rhymer, are you still around?
Id like to ask, if I can add your two videos to the DREAM Mod please? viewtopic.php?f=27&t=1168&p=14152#p14152
I would ofcourse mention you in the mod creadits and also in the DFMOD description in the game.
Two years later, somebody else attempting to AI-upscale the intro video...
The guy's doing a lot of AI upscales on his YouTube channel, but I must say, I don't find the result as convincing.
The community upscale was really a collaborative labor of love.
