The before & after looks great! Franz calls for more Stains sample to help R&D. #RestorationAsiaV
Franz Hoeller, HS-ART Digital Service GmbH, on Stains - still a nightmare?.
What he call stains, looks to me like the infamous Asian green mould. Franz demonstrates the new semi-auto filter for DIAMANT-Film Restoration Software to tackle this nightmare. #ReadyPlayerOne
Simon Lund, Cineric, on the elimination of cross modulation distortion.
Nick Deocampo on the Historiography of Asia's "Lost" Cinema. Last year it was 120th anniversary of the arrival of film to Asia. Sadly not many people bothered or remembered. #RestorationAsiaV
Adrian Wood on Lost and Found? Thirteeth Sultan. A curious case study of an unidentified film within a film! Noted as sepia tone and natural colour but all extant copies are in B&W. S/o to Todd Wiener, @firstname.lastname@example.org, Dominic Bekaert @email@example.com, ABS-CBN, @firstname.lastname@example.org
"No film has ever come out in better condition after entering a vault."
Jim Lindbergh on FILMIC Virtualization Model for Digital Motion Picture Film Preservation: Harvesting more that is FILMIC in Digital Film Preservation.
"1910 film, 8 mins scanned by LOC. Left on its own, without much intervention. Looking good 107 years later."

"A film on Hollywood, made in 1928 with $98 ($1000 today dollars), is still with us today. Relatively little human intervention." -Janice Allen. #RestorationAsiaV

Wow Apple ProRes 4444 file is finally playable on #VLC3 "Vetinari". I know it was supported since 2.0 "Twoflower", but somehow it always end up as GREEN whenever I tried to playback. Glad it's working now.
Wow, finally a better way to keep DPX/TIFF image sequences from film scans. Uses my favourite flavours MKV and FLAC. First release to be launched during FIAF Congress 22–28 April 2018 at Prague.
