Yeah, I adjusted a little the colors to be more accurate and essentially because the colors on the official weren't good (Britney were too white or idk), I didn't only adjusted the saturation, but tried to play around the gamma, chroma, RGB colors, contrasts, etc. to have a polished result than a regular saturation. I was afraid that people wouldn't like but hopefully, it seems that people liked so yeah, thank you so much! :makeitrain:

It’s a great concept but clearly Britney wasn’t that in to this era and looked exhausted mentally and spiritually

I agree, she wasn't at her best, maybe the Circus era energy would fit more this music video, even if some people find the concept of the music video just awful where I don't understand (but respect) why.

I hate how much her videos are so compressed, low quality but you're doing magic. Thanks.

Actually, VEVO didn't uploaded in true 1080p on YouTube due to bitrates limitations. But even the Director's Mastered 1080p video (uncompressed, the size is 5GB lol it's so huge) is awful:

It is from the Pro-Res archive? Looks like an actual 1080p YouTube video.

The Blu-Ray rip looks way better

What program did you use? I’ve been trying to upscale some of her older performances that are in a lower quality

Gigapixel AI with some corrections made on After Effects. You need a powerful computer with an expensive GPU (nVidia GPUs are advised), it can take easily a day or more for a 4 minutes video so if you don't have a powerful computer it will take forever. Also, I advise you to upscale only good quality videos, because you wont have good results on 240p, 360p, or bad 480p videos, in general, you will have better results by upscaling an SD video to HD and HD to 4K (rather than SD to 4K). That's why I will do If U Seek Amy in HD instead of 4K.

Noted! I’ve been using some sort of trial with Topaz to improve the quality of her Florida dwad show. It’s been over a week and only halfway through 😂😂😂

frames look hit or miss cause of the original quality, but atleast a lot of the pixels are gone. Definitely a learning experience tho

Yeah at first, it was just some experiences where I learn how to use those softwares and wanted to share them on YT, then people asked me for more so I always learn new methods to improve more the videos.

All those directors who try to make the old movies effects on their music videos... Essentially when the music video have a futuristic/high technology look...I don’t understand him... :huh:

Okay, why not for My Prerogative, but actually, I don’t understand why they added that film grain on Do Somethin’, If U Seek Amy, HIAM, etc.
