Video Editing/Repair

Video editing is quite tedious and the results are often not perfect. Below are 2 short video clips. The first has a video glitch that lasts more than 24 frames and required serious effort to resolve.

The second video has been repaired by exporting individual bad frames into still images and repeating a series of copy and paste operations in order to overlay corrupted parts of the video. The results are very good but not perfect. Took more than 3 hours to accomplish.

Seinfeld DVD's

Volumes 1-24

Seinfeld is considered one of the greatest comedies television has ever seen. It has been released on DVD and has remastered video. The original broadcast is grainy and required much work to make the shows more presentable. Some of the original footage is compared to the restored versions as an extra on the factory discs. The results are still grainy and would require a little more effort in order to smooth out the video quality.

The gallery below represents the top 90 episodes that not only contain the newly remastered deleted scenes placed into the episodes they came from, but have also been enhanced further to brighten color space, increase sharpness and smooth out original video graininess. It was fairly difficult to match the color space of the re-mastered episodes with the original deleted scenes. The results are excellent and the spliced together episodes are seemless. As much as 2-7 minutes of additional material has been added to each of the episodes. This modified DVD set also has extras that are fairly entertaining.

Rock Video Monthly

Volumes 1 and 2

A service in the early to mid 1990's that would send a VHS tape with new music videos to your home every month. Each of these tapes contained 10 videos. UserX has seen more than 25 of these tapes and most of the videos are not very good. This collection contains the top 52 videos from Rock Video Monthly and 7 others from various sources.

The video below is the first volume title animation for a custom compilation of the best material from 25 of these tapes. In this presentation, it loops three times, but only loops twice on each of the DVD discs.

The gallery below has screen shots from the DVD cases and all of the menus. The video has been re-rendered to provide the sharpest and smoothest quality possible. The audio has an increased dynamic range and been passed through a virtual valve amplifier to sound more like audio from a high end tube amplifier. The volume has been raised to the maximum. The results are surprisingly good considering the source material is VHS tape.

Evil Dead II

This is a custom motion menu created for the movie Evil Dead II. It is a stop motion video made from more than 240 still frames from screen captures and images found on the factory DVD. Video of this type is time consuming to create. It is campy, but works well with the theme of the movie. Much more entertaining than the factory release. Perhaps If Hollywood spent more time making better media packages they would sell more of them.
