Cool beans.
Truth needs no defense.  Nobody can take those footsteps I made on the surface of the moon away from me.

The video stabilization definitely makes it easier to watch.
It suddenly struck me that that tiny pea, pretty and blue, was the Earth.
I put up my thumb and shut one eye, and my thumb blotted out the planet Earth.
I didn't feel like a giant. I felt very, very small.

I have been experimenting with this kind of processing too:








Does anybody know a list of all 16mm magazines and at which framerate each scene was shot? I need this to convert the video files to the correct FPS before interpolation.

6fps 16mm interpolated to 24fps on the left.

The quality of that is amazing!

Uploaden this last week, got blocked by automatic copyright ID.

Source is certainly raw MXF files from archive.org, not Discovery.

My dispute has since been rejected by the claimant. I can make a dispute again but i don't know what to do now...

Absolutely!  Between these and The Expanse, it's like actually being in space  ;D

And thanks to apollo16uvc for the great work.
