About this mod

60 fps AI-interpolated cutscenes with plans for different resolutions and framerates in the future

Why:


How:

  1. I grabbed the base game files and first put them through Topaz Gigapixel AI to clean up the images a little to decrease any chances of further lowered image quality from re-encoding. The upscaled 24 fps files look even better than the original at the same frame!
  2. I then used an interpolation AI called RIFE to interpolate the frames to 96 fps with a framecap set to 60 fps as the game seems to break with higher fps video. It took around 14gb of vram to render the videos.
  3. Lastly I made sure the videos were encoded in h264 since the videos won't work if they are not encoded as such.

Installation:


  1. Backup any original cutscene files located beforehand! They will be located in C:\(path to game install)\Kena Bridge of Spirits\Kena\Content\MoviesPC\Cutscenes or wherever you stored the game files.
  2. Replace the files with the ones provided by this mod.
  3. Enjoy!
Future Plans:

  • I do have the very same video files re-encoded to 192 fps at higher bitrates and it looks absolutely beautiful, however the game's built-in video player doesn't seem to support it. The videos end up playing in slow-motion. I'll try and look for ways to circumvent this as well as enabling hevc/h.265 support for smaller files.
  • I plan on doing 48fps as well since it should have less judder for those playing on 144hz monitors if there is any demand. Most people probably won't notice a different though.
  • I also might do a very high bitrate verion for those less concerned about storage and want as much graphical detail as possible.
  • I have also upscaled the tutorial videos from 1080p to 4k with plans to add 60fps. Will add them later.
