Curiosity Rover’s Landing On Mars – Now In Amazing Homemade Ultra-HD Version
Independent video producer Bard Canning spent 4 weeks trying to improve the footage of Curiosity’s landing released by NASA last month, and the result is insanely amazing. He used thousands of tracking points in a technique called motion-flow interpolation, and added sound effects to make it look and sound even more realistic. The original video was made out of 297 frames, and Canning’s version looks like a real video with thousands of frames. Check out his result, and also a side by side comparison. NASA – watch and learn.
