Visualizing a digital restoration in one image

How do you replace bad frames without reencoding?

You could do the same with replacing the credits.

Basically, you can't exactly replace a frame without reencoding, BUT you can use something called "smart rendering" which only re-encodes the parts/GOPs that have changed and 1:1 copies the rest. So, the replaced frame and the frames in the same GOP would be reencoded but most other frames would just copy the data.

I believe TMPGEnc has a product called TMPGEnc Smart Renderer that does exactly this. I think there's also some freeware that does it, and I hear VideoRedo also does it.

It's no mystery really, you mentioned you were working on this a while back Evit:

You have a much better memory than I do. Sorry for creating two threads for the same thing, I totally forgot about that.

@Tom has anyone tested this TMPGEnc Smart Renderer yet?

I want to use it for a project, but I don't currently have the money to buy it. But I think somewhen in the coming months I'll get it.

IIRC there is another software I'm aware that does the same, and it is free AFAIK: SolveigMM AVI trimmer

never used, but I'd give it a try - even if I can't think to use it (or any other software) to do 1000+ cuts! Eek

For a restoration like this I think the sanest approach is to re-encode the whole thing.

I'm glad to see Escape From New York didn't put you off any more restoration projects!

Every time I say "this is the laaaast time!" but I have plenty of stuff to work on, unfortunately for the board it's mostly Italian restorations, Buck included. And I'm still waiting for fiber optics to reach me Dodgy .

For now I plan to keep on re-encoding (I limit myself to one and only one re-encode), so far it has always been 90-something minutes films on a very slow 2-pass encode and quality didn't really lose anything visible, obviously it would save a lot of hours not having to re-encode anything but I don't know what kind of learning curve TMPGEnc Smart Renderer might require and I'm always doubtful of freewares so I let you guys experiment on these promising programs Big Grin Big Grin
