been a while. So here is a new tutorial on how to restore corrupted timelapse sequences: e.g. a car driving into your night timelapse or a person accidentally illuminating your lens with LED headlamps for a second… Such a scenario can instantly ruin a whole sequence and a nights work.
Even worse are corrupted frames in a sequence due to SD/CF/camera failure. This happened to us on five precious day-night-day sequences during the #ESOUltraHD Atacama expedition 2014.
I suffered up to 70 corrupted frames per sequence by ultra low humidity/static/cosmic rays/high altitude (said astronomers). So here’s the method I developed in 2014 to restore all these sequences.
Watch one key sequence before and after restore. Do you notice a difference? The effort is well worth the result. Spread the word, glad if it helps!
