BAD TAPE CHRONICLES (Cont'd)
The attached "chase scene" video sample is the short scene from which the comparison frames are taken. It's from an early capture of the same tape discussed above. It's been inverse telecined. Capped with old AG-1980 and AIW 7500 AGP to lossless huffyuv
In the movie a small crowd is chasing a street thief into the woods, followed by the main character in a horse-drawn carriage and who eventually rescues the thief. Early in the clip there are high-speed closeups of the thief's face. Distortion is easily seen in the sloppy encoding.
The sample frames show how each line tbc device and component handles the badly encoded closeups:
