No, it’s not about beer.
ALE is a Anti-Lamenessing Engine, but sadly I got no idea what “Lamenessing” means, but that doesn’t stop me from using it.
What it does is, it take a series of frames from a movie and combines them to a high resolution image. The frames need to be nearly exactly the same, but with a small movement of the camera, which means that edges will be place differently on pixels.
I’ll get back when I’ve played with it for a bit and post examples.
P.S.: Played a bit more with it – it’s not that fantastic at doing really large versions, but it may be useful when trying to get a better quality pictures in not much higher resolution. I still may post some more information in it later, but probably not.
