Film Restoration Software


History : The first version of FILM9 was released in early 2014. This version was published on the French forum "Le Transfert Pellicule". Once again, we thank all those who participated, from near or far, the many discussions on this forum. And of course, we want to associate, with this hi, all scripts, DLLs and other AviSynth filters designers.


Version 2 : Reviews, critics, various proposals have been included in this new version 2 of FILM9. Of course, nothing is perfect, and certainly other remarks will germinate and probably result in updates that will be followed below.
