Surely gargons are of a color not apprehensible by our primitive sight organs…
I watched 20 seconds and realized there still needs to be a human involved for this process to be good. Lots of blotchy B&W areas still persist.
The colorization is a good first pass, but there are points where the computer needed some additional guidance
I lasted 6 minutes and 23 seconds. It’s the B-ist of the B movies. John Waters could do a remake.
Yes, the Earth is hanging in space like a speck of food floating in the ocean, waiting to be devoured. That’s how I’ve always thought of it.
A: “Did you get the special effects guys to make that alien monster prop?”
B: “No, our last check bounced and they demanded money up front this time.”
A: “Screw it, I’ll just stop by the fish market on my way to the shoot.”
I will hear no disrespect against this film, and the glorious lobster monster.
(In all seriousness, it’s a horrible movie, but I love it.)
Here are a few other films I’ve done that came out okay:
Cat Women on the Moon - https://archive.org/details/cat-women-of-the-moon-240p
Beat the Devil - https://archive.org/details/beat-the-devil-1953
Many of the others I’ve tried very much did not.
For sure. I also started with a pretty low resolution original copy, and the model was trained on higher resolution images. This is one of the better results I’ve had so far, honestly. Some of the others I’ve done are especially bad.
I’m still learning how to best use DeOldify, and I’ll be using it as a first pass before manual cleanup.
It seems like a great place to start, and build from.
Yeah, I mean if you can go back in and clean things up, this is a great place to start. And the results really are nice. I wish I understood more how the computer knows what color things should be.
You give the computer a bunch of black and white images, and tell it to guess what color the images should be, then you grade the computer based on how well it did, and then you tell it to try again.
You do that thousands (hundreds of thousands) of times, iterating and improving. You keep doing that with more and different pictures that have a known good colorized version, and eventually the computer starts to get it right most of the time.
Then you start to give it images that it hasn’t seen before, and if you’re very lucky, it starts to get those right to.
I didn’t do the original training here, but that’s the basic idea.
That’s pretty cool.
I was hoping this was about Mike Pondsmith’s 1980s RPG also called “Teenagers From Outer Space”.
I really wish when people did things like this they would start with a good copy of a film… So many artifacts.
