Hello all,

Not sure if I'm posting to the correct place, but I've upscaled Dark Omen cinematics to 1080p, removed the black bars, removed some noise & sharpened them. Wanted to share the results with you. Used something called "Topaz Video Enhance AI" for it. Tbh it did most of the work by itself, I just played a bit with the presets.

There were a few details it thought was noise and removed (like snowfall in Nagash cinematic), but I believe the overall result is very nice, and enjoyed rewatching the cinematics in their new 1080p (kinda) glory. It also gave me a reason to play the campaign again for the millionth time.

A few screenshots of before-after, in case you don't want to download/watch the actual videos, but curious about the difference;

I'd advise you to download from Dropbox for the full experience, as YouTube does its thing, and compresses videos kinda badly.

Amazing, they've never looked so good. Well done and great idea, many thanks. They will be perfect to include in the DOR (Dark Omen Returns remake project) but also enjoying watching them.

Thank you Driant, the videos are great. Finally also my children like the cutscenes. The Hand of Nagash cutscene I remembered for years.

Thank you for all the positive responses, glad you liked them.

@Jaroslav80 Nagash was my favourite cutscene, the scenery is so beautiful. I've used the below snap as wallpaper for many years!
