I've just uploaded anim0012, 0014 and 0015. with the revised sharpening script the raven in 0012 doesn't look as bad IMO

Edit: As I am happy with how 0003,0005,0012 and 0013 turned out I am archiving the raw upscaled assets for those. If you wish to preserve those I've uploaded them here https://mega.nz/#F!B6AXVQAK!5-hhtiyM7XhTwzdqZueamA

Is there any interest in the book animations without "aspect ratio correction"?
Thanks for update!
Yes I think the aspect corrected books are too much high, so it would be cool to have non aspect corected ones as well to choose from

Thanks for doing all this!!!!

Alright. I've encoded and uploaded versions at the original aspect ratio now.

These new ones seem to be perfect, Im going thru all the vids now, picking the ones which appear correct on the monitor.
Than I will play them in the game using the console commands.

Ive noticed theres is just one version of the anim0010, so I hope its the good one :)

I will report back after I test everything.

Awesome job!!!!!

PS: Im going for this kind of look:

just a fast note:

the book videos - I like the new noArc better.

Only strange thing is that the noArc version of Anim0006 has black borders on top and bottom (and it looks ok I guess - aspect wise) - other noArc anims of the books dont have the black borders.

Difference in resolution is the noArc Anim0006 has 1440*816 and other noArc book videos are 1440*900 - so there is some slight inconsistency there. Either way. Its good as it is so no worries.

My guess is, that the 1440*816 might be actually better than 1440*900 because it has less distorted aspect ratio - MAYBE. Its not big difference and I think all these vids will look cool eitherway.

PS: the 1440*900 is actually a fullscreen on my 16:10 monitor and it looks good as well.

I apparently forgot to upload anim0010 in its aspect ratio corrected version, I've uploaded now for the sake of completeness.

Yes, anim0006 is cropped tighter than the others, it's like that in the original as well. Here's a comparison between the two

As for cropping the others to match anim0006... I'd like to hear others thoughts about that first, before I set out to encode a third version...

Oh so it matches vanilla, in that case all is good, dont match the rest to 0006.
Downloading 0010 now
Thank you :)

Muhaha! I created the anim0004 - I colored the brown borders to pitch black and Ive used the unused music "D1"
This one turned out nicely Id say
My plan is to add the original voiceover on top of the new music after its cleaned. I hope Pango will be up to doing that.

I've uploaded another version - it's an attempt to sync up anim0006 with one of the other book FMVs, and use those for the cropped off top and bottom. A bit rough right now - I plan to tweak the motion estimating code later to see if I can improve it.

Great idea, that would be a nice trick!! Fingers crossed.
Ive contacted Pango and asked him if he is up to do the sound cleaning for the new videos. He is REALLY good at it. Lets hope he will be interested.
That would make the efforts complete.
I redid the 0002 video (from the stills) in the meantime. Now I like it.

Ive found a error

anim0014 and 0015 the noArc versions

They are different than the videos in the originals. Not sure what is the cause.
your 015 sounds like 014 in original
and 014 sounds like 009
