What's AnimeRefiner?

AnimeRefiner is an AI that can beautifully enhance animation resolution.
Any animation can be 4x higher and 4x higher resolution.
You can convert it into beautiful images as if they were made in that size.
SD size (640x480px) anime can be converted to FHD size or larger,
HD size (1280x) 720px) anime can be converted to 4K size or larger, and
Full HD size (1920x1080px) anime can be converted to 8K size.
Deep Learning is a unique technology that is incomparably more beautiful than previous technologies and can enhance animation resolution.

Features of AnimeRefiner

High-resolution by the state-of-the-art AI technology (Deep Learning)

AnimeRefiner uses Deep Learning to achieve high resolution in high quality that traditional image extension and interpolation techniques (up conversion technology) have not enabled. By the unique AI model used in resolution enhance AI「Photo Refiner」, you can higher the resolution of animation 4 times in both length and width. Having learned many features of low-resolution and high-resolution animations, AI can higher animation resolution incomparably more beautiful than previous technologies.

1. Removal of various types of noise

2. AI estimates and generates sharp edges

3. Express the shadows beautifully

comparison with existing technologies

Many conversion (upconversion) techniques extend the video to interpolate the middle. Therefore, the edges may be ambiguous or the noise may be stretched as it is. AnimeRefiner learns what high-definition images should be like, so you can create high-resolution images from low-resolution images.

The edge is sharper and the thin outline is smooth, rather than the high resolution of existing technologies.

Non-High Definition Issues

We can also support 2-3 pulldowns and interlaces, which are problematic with anime and live-action videos. AnimeRefiner uses Deep Learning and Computer Vision to address these issues.

2-3 pulldown

A method of converting animation recorded at 24 frames per second into 30 frames per second of video signals used in television broadcasts and VODs.

deinterlacing

The process of converting interlaced video, such as a typical analog television signal or a 1080i format HDTV signal, to a non-interlaced format.

HIGH-RESOLUTION PROCESSING SEPARATING SUBTITLE

Subtitles are synthesized after the production of the animation, so there are cases where the subtitles and images are processed differently. Therefore, if you process it centrally, the subtitles may not be clean even if you can clean up the anime. Therefore, AnimeRefiner is able to process subtitles only, anime only with anime, and synthesize them later to achieve beautiful high resolution even in situations where subtitles and images are mixed.

Enables output in a variety of color modes

We have added a mode that allows you to produce multiple patterns of output, from a mode in which the original animation color is increased to a more attractive color using AI.

No need for a high-spec machine

In hardware, the high-performance GPU cluster and in softwear, patent-pending high-speed inference technology enabled high-speed inference. For example, in the CG field, rendering on their machines used to take time to obtain high quality images. But with AnimeRefiner, you can transform into a clean animation without using your own hardware.

Multiple file formats (ingresses)

It supports various encoding including Apple ProRes 422, H264, and MPEG-4, so it is possible to enhance the quality of various file formats such as .mov, .mp4, and .mpeg.In addition, while the output is based on .mov, we can respond to your request.Please contact us for more information.

Save time and money for remastering and 4K and 8K animation production

4K remastering of past anime at low cost and speed

It takes a lot of time and money to produce an animated remaster. To increase the resolution, you have to enlarging the size to re-draw the blurred part by hand and repair it. You need to cleanly repair each frame while eliminating video noise and more. With AnimeRefiner, AI will re-master high-resolution anime by conjecturing. It is possible to make a beautiful remaster version by removing noise from the animations. AI replaces more than 90% of the remaster work.

Reduce the burden of creating 4K animation

With the spread of 4K TV, the need for 4K content has also increased. However, it takes more than twice time to draw the original picture in a 4K size as in a full HD size. AnimeRefiner enables a new method of creating by up-converting the original HD-sized Key Frame to 4K. This allows you to produce high-quality anime such as 4K and 8K with lower cost and speed. The budget reduction effect for 4K and 8K animation production can be expected.
