Re: Can this really be true?

No big thing, but to help I have moved it to software which I think is a better place for it

The results on their website look a bit like they have JPEG artefacts to me. I'd need to test against a few other bits of software to give a full opinion

Regards
Andy

So many spinoffs from CGI in the movies, with machine “learning” tweaking algorithms to make better interpolations from one pixel to the next.

But once you exceed the human visual limits, is there any point?

Re: Can this really be true?

There are all sorts of tricks that can be done in software when you upscale (or other tricks like removing blur), but they will inevitably suffer from potential artifacts being introduced. It would be a really impressive algorithm if it could add detail that was relevant to the context of the image - adding rock edges where there should be rock edges or eyelash detail where there should be eyelashes. If we ever get to that point, then the camera will become pointless since the computer can generate the whole image without anything to start from!

The camera will still be there to capture moments to remember. But as far as creating an image from scratch then current CGI is getting pretty close to being able to fool the human eye.
