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.

It's Mr. Munns in the widow's home making a copy: https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x2njawr

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.   http://www.internationalskeptics.com/forums/showthread.php?t=172540

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.

I still cant seem to make up my mind about this film. Is it a man in a suit, or a real animal? I honestly dont know.

Either way, the film is valuable and must be preserved. I wasn’t sure myself, but seeing the enhanced footage, I believe it is one of the 20th century’s greatest hoaxes.

Well, even if the film turns out to be a hoax, i wouldnt be the slightest bit upset. I would be happy that roger patterson has provided us with a film that has brought years and years of debate within the cryptozoological community.

Sorry late to the party....they touched up a hoax film from the 60's? That's nice.
