Patterson-Gimlin Bigfoot video gets makeover

A 4K remaster of the infamous footage, which is alleged to show a live Bigfoot, has been posted online.
Filmed in 1967 in Northern California, the Patterson-Gimlin film has long remained the most hotly debated and tantalizing piece of footage ever recorded in relation to the Bigfoot phenomenon.

The video, which offers a clear view of a large bipedal ape-like creature walking along the creek bed, soon became world-famous and has attracted the attention of Bigfoot enthusiasts and critics alike.

Now in a renewed bid to obtain the clearest possible version of the controversial video, YouTuber 'Bigfoot AI' has used modern software to stabilize and remaster the footage in 4K.

The lengthy upload includes several zoomed in sequences to provide as clear a view as possible of the creature walking across the frame, as well as details about how the remaster was processed.

The remastered footage itself can be viewed from around the 50-second mark.

I didn't find it yet. Is it M K Davis? Seems he might have been one of the first to stabilize. But reading his blog about it, I didn't see that he used an actual reel film as his base.

I think it may have been MK Davis. I just searched for it and didn’t see anything on the first couple of pages. A year or so ago it was one of the very first that came up. As I recall it was around 27 minutes or so. Basically it was a documentary about the creation of the stabilized version. The cameras went with the guy as he went to the home of the lady that owned the original with his equipment and scanned each frame of film. So that first stabilized version is not going to be too degraded.

It's Mr. Munns in the widow's home making a copy:

You can make it look better but it's not necessarily more accurate. In the case of colourising retro still images: You have a pretty good idea of which colours to use and can sharpen an image, so they can generally make an old image look better. It's just a still after all, nothing changes frame-by-frame, easy to add/enhance things. Eg. Making a more photorealistic still is much more easy than making a deepfake photorealistic video. But with a video, when the file used was not the original footage, you're relying on upscaling. The video may look better. But extrapolating 4K resolution from low... [More]

can you give me the time stamp where widow patterson lets the crew in and they make a copy of her documented orginal film, i watched the first 5 min just saw munns in a room no one else there, the scene looked stagged for dramatic affect. since i find munns claims biased and based on his opinion i stopped there.

He’s already in the room. The homeowner never appears onscreen. She must be camera shy.

Looks even more fake

ah, so it could very well be staged at any location, for drama, not that i see anything epic if widow patterson did welcome in a camera crew and munns for tea and flim duplication,  but i just wanted to see her and how she appeared in a video. whiles munns has done a great deal to promote the PGF is a hoax i am just not warm to his cranky  egomaniacal style, but i do get it and his agenda and motivations.
