Recreating ending credits?
#1
Hello,

I imagine that this may split opinions, but I thought I would ask. In the event of constructing a complete reconstruction of a film (using uncut/cut sources etc), would it be preferable to recreate the ending credits (over a textless, but higher quality version of the credits scene) or simply use a lower quality source for their entirety? 
The higher quality source (in this case, HD) of course looks nicer, but there will be a few frames inserted from a lower quality source that might have credits on them. So if either choosing to recreate the credits, or leave the credits scene textless, a few frames would either suddenly feature text (or two layers of text potentially overlapping).

The ending credits on the lower quality source are in multiple languages too, so attempting to even OCR or transcribe them them may prove difficult due to a decrease in legibility.

Any feedback/opinions are appreciated.

Perhaps you could recreate missing frames credits (text only of course) manually with use of vector graphics.

Like what Blue Underground did in the 4k remaster of Zombie basically, right?

I think so, but I can't be 100% positive. I think they recreated whole font or just found the one used.

You could always try to do just that, find the correct font, then just adjust the font spacing etc.

WhatTheFont is a good website with a font detector.

There's one way is to delete everything in the old credits in the image except the fonts.

They you can layer them on the new HD textless. As you will basically own the credits layer only.
