  1. Don’t worry I know you’re not shading because it’s true, my old upscales were too sharpened and there were some artifacts on Britney. You’ve totally right as I used old versions of Topaz AI (VEAI and Gigapixel AI) so this thread and the video are old and I’m planning to fix all problems with newer upscales. Now that I’ve upgraded everything, the quality is now more natural especially on my latest videos: PS: the AI may always make some artifacts due to a poor quality source, there’s almost no fixes as the AI couldn’t guess faces (unlike Remini which can guess how a face would look but could make also artifacts or create an artificial face). Indeed YouTube compress (a lot) the videos, it’s so frustrating especially when a video have a film grain effect like My Prerogative or If U Seek Amy. But yeah I agree, it’s better to watch the DVD rips or ProRes Masters on TV which is able to do real time upscaling since they are the official videos, mine are edited due to copyrights so yeah the Official videos are ofc superior than my edits. If your TV have a built-in AI processor to upscale in real time videos, then it’s better than Topaz AI (which I use) because Topaz runs on a computer with the GPU of the computer and takes ages to upscale a single 4 minutes videos, while the TV have a separate AI Processor which is designed for real-time AI upscaling, I think some Samsung TVs have that feature which is pretty cool!
  2. Because I found the DVD version a little bit weird in terms of colors, I found the same problem with Overprotected Darkchild (pinky tint while the real tint is more orange, we can see that on a screen behind Britney on Hold It Against Me). For Stronger, the Director’s Master ( https://www.josephkahn.com/project/7784/britney-spears) don’t have too much of green tint and seems like more blue tint than the DVD version, that’s why I made the change. But I’m planning to remake another remaster of Stronger with better editing and better quality as I updated Topaz AI softwares (the quality is far better now). Actually, it doesn’t really highlight things the director didn’t want shinning, because those things are already there on the original videos I use for upscaling. I always use ProRes Masters or DVD VOB Masters, the AI software will not "create" details but use all information of the video to redraw everything in the final upscaled resolution. The details were already there on the ProRes Master (skin imperfections for example) but upscaled in 4K with AI will make them more noticeable as the resolution is higher, that’s all. The explanation of why the official videos on YT don’t have those deep details is they were too compressed (and more blurred/smoothed with the new Official HD remaster) that hide those details. That’s why we may believe those upscales restore details that Directors would hide, in reality, it’s that I use (almost) uncompressed sources as ProRes Masters were all details are still there and not lost after many encodes and compressions. Now, most of her old music videos were shot on films which means that Britney’s videos can also be in HD or 4K natively, but the reason why they mastered her MVs in 480i/480p resolutions only isn’t because the technology weren’t too advanced for directors, it’s just that TVs could only display SD contents so they had to edit her videos in the SD resolution. Now if they want to release native HD/4K videos, they have to re-edit everything which is expensive, that’s why AI upscaling is here, at least for people who want to watch videos in better quality (even if we can’t reach the native resolution with upscales but it’s better than nothing). But I agree with you that we may lose that "experience" we have with old music videos after upscaling them.
  3. People (nowadays?) seem to find the (unfinished) music video "cringe", "uncomfortable" and "weird". Look at the comments, most people seem to agree with the same fact, it’s cringe and the video is making them uncomfortable: (It’s not to promote my video or anything, just check the comments to see what I’m talking about)
  4. Indeed, all of my edits are unblocked for all countries, everyone can watch Britney’s videos on my channel without countries restrictions. The only bad thing, is my edits aren’t the official videos. Which is so weird, is the fact that Britney’s videos are blocked on her official channel for no "obvious" reason, idk why my edits work but not official videos. As far as I know, my edit of Gimme More isn’t blocked in Canada. It’s almost like the official video, with just some additional scenes.
  5. The problem is that we aren’t even sure that first LQ video is official or not. Since there’s no logo of a TV channel, that means it was potentially ripped from an original source, but where? We still don’t know. Maybe from the CD single but there’s absolutely no rip of it on internet... I still don’t understand why the label didn’t officially released the video somewhere. I mean, probably not on her official channel but at least somewhere else like on Greatest Hits: My Prerogative DVD as a bonus video for example.
  6. Oh thank you so much for asking to @Roxxy, also thank you so much @Roxxy! Apparently it was also aired on MTV Philippines, so maybe it would be easier to find some accurate information?
  7. Yeah that LQ video of That’s Where You Take Me on YouTube looks legit, it have a few differences in the editing but there are no major changes. The other versions out there look more "finished" as there are additional scenes instead of black fading transitions where we can find on the first LQ video, maybe the new versions a sort of "Director’s Cut" or some people re-edited the video by using the making of DWADT and 2001 VMA, something like that.
  8. Yeah I just saw that before and thought that looked like an official single but wasn’t sure if it’s not fake. Lmao yeah at least we are (almost) sure that’s the official video but it’s kinda weird to release a Video Promo for a song that isn’t even a single. However, it was apparently very popular in Philippines so idk.
  9. Thanks for the research! I didn’t know that Bombastic Love was a single too! For That’s Where You Take Me, there’s this CD-rip under "Singles" folder of Britney Media, with the scans of the CD-cover of the single. So that’s maybe confirming that’s actually an official single? https://cloud.mail.ru/public/7mAu/FUZTZpCSe/Singles/2003 - That's Where You Take Me [Philippines Promo CD Single]/ But the music video is missing there.
  10. Oh, I found indeed many people on YT who confirmed that appeared on MYX TV, a popular music channel in early 2000s in Philippines. Just found this page, where it confirms that was released as single and also had a Promo Video as bonus on the Single CD. And that Promo Video is actually the music video which makes sense.
  11. Thank you for confirming! So it’s one of the rarest single of Britney
  12. Indeed, there’s no other sources of the original music video, not even a TV/VHS rip which is weird since we even got a TV rip of a channel airing the Original Music Video of Gimme More (2011 Leak, it’s not even an official video). I did a research on internet, and I never found the original video or a TV rip. But many people confirmed that was aired on Music TV channels of Philippines and also Brazil, idk if @PokemonSpears know anything about the music video being aired in Brazil. I’m not sure if it was really released as single, but it’s probably true as the audio of the music video is longer than the Album version. It has also ad libs on the beginning of the video. It sounds more like an official audio edit for the music video to me but idk.
  13. That must be indeed the major label (SME) which is the holder of copyrights and probably owns her videography (as SME, Sony Music Entertainment, owns JIVE and RCA). There are indeed many issues, especially on her official YT channel. The Overprotected Darkchild Remix video missing, wrong titles on some videos, the bad remasters from Sony which look, sometimes, worse than the original 480p... And actually, they didn’t uploaded Overprotected DC Remix on YouTube but added a vertical video of it on Spotify, on Overprotected (Album Version)... I-
  14. I know it’s been a long time lol but here you go (AI upscaled in 4K) I think it’s the best quality out there since there’s still no CD-rip from the Philippines’ single.
  15. I get why you think it’s weird, I mean, it’s not common to change a mind like that, but I don’t think her father decided to delete this music video. I know she is taking a break until her father isn’t the one who run the conservatorship, but in general, he don’t mind what Britney does on her artistic creativity as long as Britney is working properly. The most accurate, and easiest fact to believe is that Britney changed her mind due to how vulgar and inappropriate the video is, as she already said, she is a mom. If it happened to Work B***h, then I don’t see why it wouldn’t with the original Make Me. Because if the chains and the cage are the reasons why it got scrapped, then the new video for Make Me would have the same level of vulgarity/inappropriate contents as the first version. But here, the new video is softer than the old one, with a whole new concept which totally proves the "It just didn’t worked" as the old video [the leaked cut to be precise, as it’s not the Director’s Cut] had no-sense. Not saying the new version is better, both are trash in my opinion. I hope you understand more my point of view, but I totally get why you think it’s so weird and suspicious how she changed her mind like that. And to answer to your last post: yes, the leaked cut was edited by someone else and not by the Director.
  16. Exactly. It’s just Britney who didn’t liked it, it’s not that deep. I don’t think her father has anything to do with this music video, it’s Britney who changed her mind after thinking to potential consequences. In my opinion, it’s not weird, because it happened the same thing with Work B***h. Even if she shot the whole music video, she said that she did a lot of things that aren’t on the final music video. The half of Work B***h video was cut by Britney because she said that she is a mother: So it’s not surprising that she finally changed her mind on the first version of Make Me too.
  17. If she makes new songs like Glory’s songs, I doubt that she will dominate the charts as those types of songs don’t hit all generations and all people. If she makes songs like Circus/Femme Fatale’s songs, I think she can easily dominate the charts with good and fun music videos. Womanizer, Circus, I Wanna Go, Till The World Ends and Scream & Shout are the perfect types of songs for dominating the charts again, especially because of their choruses. Also, the promo is really important (unlike the Britney Jean or Glory eras where there wasn’t enough of promo). She also need to do more TV live performances to promote her songs. But for doing all of that, the most important thing is: Britney. She should be ready for this new era, she should have the energy for performing again, doing music videos, recording songs. And of course, it’s if she wants to.
  18. You had the opportunity to continue trolling by posting other photos before admitting that you’re trolling no one will believe you now
  19. I understand absolutely nothing on this thread. Soon we will get this thread: "New photo leaked of Britney with Lady Gaga, Madonna and Katy Perry!! OMG 😱😱😱"
  20. Wait so another twitter account teased a photo with a special person?
  21. It’s like someone used the blink feature of Remini, which makes someone’s face smiling (as apparently on the original photo, Britney wasn’t smiling). Or maybe it was manually edited.
  22. It’s an app for iOS and Android which improve and upscale your pictures with AI. The results are really good when the original picture is high quality. But if the original picture is too low quality and pixelated, the results may be weird as the AI guess the face due to the lack of details. You can try and download it there: iOS (iPhone/iPod/iPadOS): https://apps.apple.com/fr/app/remini-ai-photo-enhancer/id1470373330 Android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.bigwinepot.nwdn.international&hl=fr&gl=US
  23. And the thing is that picture is actually true and not fake, that’s definitely Britney’s clothes style, and also I recognized that’s just Remini’s AI who messed up faces as the photo was too low quality. The title of the photo shows that’s from Remini. UPDATE: the title isn’t from Remini. Indeed, this picture is true because it’s Britney but her face is heavily edited, I wonder if it got some AI treatments with Remini or with another app. People are so mean. Don’t listen to trollers, you’re free to share pictures here, just ignore those trollers and mean people. @Lost In Space
