Showing how well the DAIN-AI can interpolate low framerates. Slowed down footage to get the point across. This scene has by far the most extreme movement out of all the footage. Its a worst-case scenario.

That's amazingly good, considering the frame rate of the original.  Having spent many years working in computer graphics (simulators then games) I'm still continually amazed at the progress which continues to be made in all parts of the field.

I saw the Apollo 16 rover 60fps earlier on reddit /r/all - Congratulations! :D It's great that you're breathing new life and interest into this footage.

SO where does this leave the bar of skill and effort required for a work to be transformed enough?
Maybe the new interpolated frames could fall under transformed works? But that is complicated, could others independently create bit-identical interpolated frames with the same software?

There is probably no precedent. Closest thing I could find is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bridgeman_Art_Library_v._Corel_Corp.

WOW!!!  That has always been my favorite DAC footage, and you rendered it beautifully.

Thank you so much for your time and effort.
