i have bunch of anime DVD i have to make upscaled rips for a site. i came up with a process that clears up most of the noise and other problems.
but the process take to much time per EP and i am looking into how to automate this as much as i can.
first i use DGindex to the part that is needed from the DVD iso file , then i export it into frames with vitrual dub using avisyth scripts
then i run the frames trough Waifu2xcaffe , which is a program using an algoritem for upscaling and denoising.Code:TFM() TDecimate(Mode=1) McTemporalDenoise(settings="Low") sharpen(0.15)
then i use Megui and with "ImageSource" on the upscaled frames to convert them to MKV file , then i add the sound and the subtitles.
finished , but it takes to much time per EP,
is there a way to do the frames in one go? Rip the frame>run the first script on it > run it trough Waifu2xcaffe >run the last script and turn it into an MKV.
also i can also do about 6000 frames trough Waifu2xcaffe at a time so i have to splint because an ep has like 22,000 frames.

Waifu2X can be used directly in AviSynth as well, although it's absurdly slow. Unless you're convinced it does a better job upscaling (I'm not), I think you'd be better served using NNEDI3_rpow2, like so:
That's one way to speed up the process. A lot.
Waifu2xcaffe is the GPU version that OP is talking about which I'm going to guess is much faster.
The standard approach would be to check out the command-line options for these programs and then combine them in a shell script, if possible.
