  • Audio Upscaling Technology
    Are there any functional audio 'upscalers' available at the moment? I.e. something that can convert low quality compressed audio into higher quality audio, in a similar manner to AI image superresolution, or video upscaling, or frame interpolation.
  • How do we increase the resolution of images and videos?
    There are other schemes that people have come up with like waifu2x but I have never worked with them at all.

    I trained a model using [StyleGanv2](https://github.com/NVlabs/stylegan2) on images i scraped from astrobin, cloudynights, and r/astrophotography (cropped 512x512), then selected and upscaled using [waifu2x](http://waifu2x.udp.jp/) to get what you see here.
  • Does anyone have more of these? (They're the hi-res source of the dream sequences.)

    Ok, I got back to my computer and had time for sleuthing. I found this reddit post that has what looks like a similar image to what you posted. They say they used Waifu2x. I used diffchecker.com to see if I could find a difference between the image you posted and that one. I didn't notice one in the image difference tab, in spite of the different file size. If I had to guess, it's probably just more aggressive compression that isn't visible. I also went and tried to upscale something else myself. I used waifu2x.udp.jp to upscale a different image to see if it had a similar style. I did 2x twice to get the original post resolution of 4x. My results are here. To my eye, the strokes on the hat have the same quality as the one you sent and the bleed on the wheat looks about the same too.

  • Can someone please fix the r/Starlink subreddit image? The right side is cut off.
    reddit.com/r/Starlink | 2021-03-24
    You could use something like http://waifu2x.udp.jp/ to upscale and remove aliasing if you want to try, could even just do that for the original image to make it look better if you'd like.
  • Does anyone have the final illustration you get for finishing the game?
    Not sure if there's a larger version out there, but you could always use something like waifu2x for these types of things, since they're in an anime-ish style.
  • any good tool that lets you upscale anime to 4k easily ?
    reddit.com/r/anime | 2021-03-21
    If you just need upscaling, here is the documentation for doing it using ffmpeg. This will probably produce artifacts and lower quality though. If you wish to avoid this, use waifu2x for frames or dandere2x for videos as suggested by /u/Epilex__ in their comment.
