The treatment of the old video through the Topaz AI software is a very frustrating and at times lengthy business. If it is going to crash with your settings it lets you walk away or more likely go to bed or on holiday with crossed fingers that it will be processed. Anyway I'm having yet another go at the 1980's Glasgow material taking it up to Dave Cole's 1990 scenes, other shots from Tim Bubb and Richard Lomas. It will be great when it is finished. The easiest parts are ripped from DVD then just processed at not too high a setting and the results seem splendid. Mixing sources just confuses and trying to scale to high leads to a crash ( eventually).
I have my hospital pre op to attend tomorrow, then I can make the payment, 5 days before at least. It is the weekend put aside for the decoration of our bedroom before my op and alas the new carpet which has been delayed until November. Getting the dining room back to good order involved Mandy in two falls, a bruised bottom was the worst injury thankfully although on the second try some broken vases and a stretched plastic storage box which Mandy tumbled backwards into and got stuck. I made sure she was ok and then fetched the camera, no I value my life too much to spread that shot so widely, hard luck!
Slide show tonight from Chesterfield a couple of days back, the DVDs are on the shop.
