  1. Here the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eF4jioW1Ijs&feature=you...

    I want to fill the black bars to the sides and the tiny bit under the video to achieve full 4:3 Aspect ratio.

    How can i do this?

  2. "fill the black bars" -- What does that mean? You want to remove the black bars? Just about every editor has the ability to "crop" and "resize". Is this what you're looking for?

    I dont know what crop is exactly but yeah i would like to resize so it is full 4:3.

    Kinda hard to explain. Kust look at the Picture i posted above. Toom in and press F11. It should just like that.
    My video is smaller than that picture.

    Any tutorial about resizing videos?

  4. So crop away the black borders, resize to 1440x1080, then add black borders to the sides to fill out the 1920x1080 frame. Every video editor can do that. Something like the attached video?

    It's not clear to me exactly what the aspect ratio of the video sans black bars should be. I assumed it was 4:3. Though, if you just remove the black bars you have something closer to 5:4.

    Thats exactly what i want!

    But how did you do this?
    If you have the time could you give me a little tutorial of what you used or a video link pls?

    It looks so much sharper than mine aswell. My Mind is blown.

  6. Exactly what I did probably won't help you because I use AviSynth (a text script based video filtering system) and the x264 command line encoder. I downloaded the video as test.mp4 then:

    Code:
    ffVideoSource("test.mp4") 
    Crop(34, 2, -30, -6)
    LanczosResize(1440, 1080)
    AddBorders(240, 0, 240, 0)
    Most GUI editors will allow you to do something similar. First apply a crop filter to remove the black borders. That leaves you with a ~576x472 frame. Then apply a resize filter to make the frame 1440x1080 (4:3). Finally add 240 pixel wide borders to the left and right to fill out the 1920x1080 frame.

    Actually, I didn't use LanczozResize() to upscale the video. I used advanced upscaling techniques with nnedi3_rpow2(), aWarpSharp(), and Sharpen(). I also quickly (in terms of writing the script, not processing speed) denoised the video with McTemporalDenoise().

    If tell people what video editor(s) you use someone can probably give you more specific instructions.

    Sounds veeery complicated.

    Maybe i should tell you this is the fist time for me editing a Video.

    However the Result you achieved looks very clean i would like to try it are any tutorials you would recommand?

  8. I am using Sony Vegas 11 pro.

    BTW those Sharpening filters you put in your video. Is it no oversharpening the picture in theory?

  9. Yes, they are probably over sharpening a bit. The actual script I used was:

    Code:
    ffVideoSource("test.mp4") 
    Crop(34,2,-30,-6)
    McTemporalDenoise(settings="medium")
    aWarpSharp(10)
    Sharpen(0.5)
    nnedi3_rpow2(4, cshift="LanczosResize", fwidth=1440, fheight=1080)
    aWarpSharp(10)
    Sharpen(0.3)
    AddBorders(240,0,240,0)
    You could fine tune all the sharpening to your liking.
