Riven Flyby Restoration

Postby KathAveara » Tue Dec 03, 2013 11:41 am

Since Calum and I are finally about to begin playing through Riven, something we are both looking forward to, I took the opportunity to record the opening sequence, and while looking through my recording, I noticed that some of the images flashing across the linking panel of the Riven book looked familiar, and I mentioned this to Calum. Since then, we have managed to determine that at least some (we think most) of the images were sourced from other footage, and some of the stills, in the game itself.
We're currently extracting the individual frames so that we can confirm our theory, and hopefully, clear up the static, which seems to be formed by interlacing strips from consecutive frames. More to come soon.

After some tedious work, we've managed to extract two complete frames! You can find our process and results (compared with stills from the game itself) here, here, here, and here, on Calum's Flickr.

Credit goes to Calum for doing all the image manipulation.
