I had someone call today with a VHS security tape they wanted to have someone enhance in clarity and zoom in on a frame to identify who had broken into their property. So, I have visions of "Alias" and other TV shows that display all this high tech enhancing of unreadable license plates etc. for crime investigations.
I have Media 100 XR 8.2, Boris RED on Mac OS 10.2.9
Are these functions available in Media 100 or Boris? If not, what kind of programs are used to enhance video?
Thanks for any input, I always want to find out what is possible and with what...
if you happen to know anyone in law enforcement who may have access to a system.
As Floh suggested, try exporting a still and manipulating it in Photoshop using Unsharp Mask. You could also take a look at the individual red, green or blue channels in the PS Channels palette to see if any single one of them is a better jumping off point (contrast, etc.) to start manipulating from.
