This is pretty amazing.



FYI: Motion interpolation is a form of video processing in which intermediate animation frames are generated between existing ones, in an attempt to make animation more fluid.

Sunk without a trace........

Watch the video, it is amazing!

Truly spectacular, awe inspiring even, really improves upon the stop-motion style caused by the low FPS of the original.


Not surprised your thread sunk without a trace, I posted the first thread with the original descent video when it was released and it too disappeared to the depths quickly.

Guess people are too busy trying to find signs of foul play in the released images to notice beauty of the actual science behind the mission e.g. the logistics of the mission.

Thanks for posting it.

Absolutely amazing.

Mars looks very red in the footage too.

Unfortunately it's reduced to 720p. I'm not sure why he'd go to all this trouble and shrink it like that.

The video he replied to was 1080p which itself is reduced from the 1200 of the original, but youtube probably caps at 1080p which is why we can't see 1200 (my monitor actually displays 1200, so I'd actually like to see it in full resolution 1200, but not many people would be able to see that).

Since my monitor can display 1080p, the 1080p video he replied to looks better to me, but if you're on a 720p laptop and can't see the difference, I guess this one might look good in comparison.

Resolution is more important than frame rate, to me at least.

As a video editor I can tell you why.

Process time goes up with 1080p, dramatically up. As does file size and upload time. It is also (unlikely but) possible that Youtube cut it to 720...I've had that happen to me before.

Thanks for the film lesson, that has taught me quite a bit about film interpolation.

Thanks, I was wondering if it had something to do with process time. I've edited videos also, but so far not 1080.

Is it quite easy then, video interpolation? It seems like it is being used more and more in situations where complete running film can not be produced. It might be one of the reasons the NASA team did not feel it unnecessary to install a running digital camera on the rover.

Quite an awe-inspiring video man, thanks.
And don't worry, is the norm around here that actual scientific and enriching content is ignored while unfounded silly threads about whatever came to mind to an ADD ridden australopitecus reaches 12000 flags...
Just keep'em coming!

Oh I am aware of that, there's is a place for those kind of threads on this site as well, I suppose.

I might go an start one now actually.
