All the cutscenes have been upscaled to 4K, except starting from this game, I have upped the bitrate else there will be noticeable loss of quality between AVI uncompressed (after upscaling) to Bink 1 Compression. The file size will be doubled or 10 times larger than the original cutscene sizes.

 

Introduction

Originally, these files are rendered at 1920×1080 / 1080p. As we all know, when moving your monitor’s resolution to 4K can have some ugly side effects on game video files and in-game gameplay when the screen resolution is set on 1080p.

Using AI upscaling software, I have applied appropriate upscaling methods, which added few extra details whilst keeping the clarity of the video as original (with deblocking).

I have also upped the default bitrate of these video files compared to the automated Bink compression bitrate, due to the amount of detail missing when the video file has been compressed.
