Jazz Jackrabbit 2 Intro in 1440p (1920x1440) resolution


If you wanna download it, here's the GD link: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1zW...WbOys_ZATTwZkF
Video quality comparison: https://drive.google.com/open?id=15o...n3rC-H5QwbvFYs
Left: Upscale, Right: Original (SD)

For experiment purposes, I decided to upscale the Jazz Jackrabbit 2 intro to 1440p quality by using two neural networks: Topaz A. I. Gigapixel (for Epic Games and Orange Games clips) and Waifu2x Caffe (for Project Two Interactive intro and cinematic animation). The editing process was done in Adobe Premiere Pro CC. It took me several hours to upscale every frame from this clip (neither Topaz or Waifu2x are supporting video files, first you have to convert a video file into several PNG/JPG still images, then upscale them in mentioned programs and finally combine them back into one video). Nevertheless, it was worth it, and I'm personally pleased with the result a lot. Enjoy watching

That looks really damn sweet! Now we need someone to make it 60 FPS and we've got ourselves a flawless gem.

Not to be "that guy" but 1440p is not 2K, 2K is 2048 x 1080

Thanks! The idea is quite good, I even tried to implement it in Adobe After Effects, but unfortunately it did not work out.

Yeah, my bad. But anyway, I hope you enjoyed this remaster.

Now we need to find a way to import it to JJ2 and make it so that the game renders it at 1440p and not 200p. That would be cool.

I have no experience on such stuff whatsoever, but I'm ready to co-operate with anyone who knows how to make Jazz 2 game render the intro in 1440p, so, I'm all for it
