I’ve been testing out VEAI with some old Lo-Band Umatic tapes and generally it is doing a very good job at enhancing the picture quality. I am very impressed with what it can do. However, it wold be great if the AI algorithm could recognise the kind of tape dropout known as Comet tails. The 1 frame white horizontal flashes that are very common on old Umatics, VHS tapes and Beta’s. I would have thought these would be very easy for the AI to pick out and replace with sections from previous frames or lines above or below.
