    From the blog post:

    Starting from the birth of photographing in the 18-th centuries, videos became important media to keep vivid memories of their age being captured. And it's shown in varying forms including movies, animations, and vlogs. However, due to the limit of video technologies including sensor density, storage and compression, quite a lot of video contents in the past centuries remain at low quality. Among those important metrics for video quality, the most important one is the temporal resolution measured in frame-per-second or fps for short. Higher-frame-rate videos bring about more immersive visual experience to users so that the reality of the captured content is perceived. Therefore, the demand to improve the low-frame-rate videos, particularly the 12fps old films, 5~12fps animations, pixel-arts and stop motions, 25~30 fps movies, 30fps video games, becomes more and more urgent.

    Here are a couple of enhanced YouTube videos made using this technique:

      I get the soap opera effect hard with frame interpolation, to the point that I'll ask friends and family if I can change their TV settings when I'm at their house. To me, it looks like they've filmed my favorite movies with a camcorder. It ruins the special effects and totally takes me out of the movie experience.
