I made a mistake with my newly bought compact camera, before a trip to Japan. Instead of taking single pictures, I ended up with a few short "MP4" video files (1 second, 2-3 frames). I could "easily enough" extract individual frames with ffmpeg, using help from:
- Extract all video frames as images with FFMPEG
- Extract images frame by frame from a video file using FFMPEG
- Fastest way to extract frames using ffmpeg?
- How can I extract a good quality JPEG image from an H264 video file with ffmpeg? [NOT TRIED YET]
I am unsatisfied with the quality of some frames, and as there is very little motion, I would like to restore or recreate a superresolution image from those two-three frames only, using the motion vector.
I would appreciate suggestions, software experience, etc. For readers interested in trying algorithms, I provided in the 22 MB file StackExchange-AVI2JPG.zip two examples with media information (obtained with MediaInfo) and camera reference (to avoid unwanted advertizing). One leaving Osaka, with a relatively nicely flat image:
the other from Nara, Todai-Ji:
where the wire fence is sharper, hence the individual frame quality is poorer. I enjoyed my trip, and would be glad to share crisper images of the first day (a view on the Fuji in the early for the finest eyes).
