(on this one, turn down your monitor's brightness and turn up the contrast for best effect)

Keeping in mind .. the PCIN renders haven't been optimized for dithering ... in areas where the PF0-PF3 colors intersect, checkerboard dithering can be done to reduce the flicker.

 

The super 9 pic is a double-interlaced Graphics 9, but the BAK color is changed every character line to get a wider color range.

 

I don't know if a screenshot of real hardware will suffice, but maybe a video of it perhaps ... or some way to blend the frames.

Haven't messed around with these in awhile, but a post on the rastaconverter thread inspired me to try some pics based on the TV series Dark Matter:

ICE - Interlace Character Editor ... a series of experiments I have been doing, rendering pictures in character flip modes similar to Super IRG.  Most of these mix Graphics 10 or Graphics 9 with Antic 4.  They do flicker, but I've gotten some good results too.

 

I started a thread awhile ago with these experiments:

If you could zip up all the forest and tiger scenes and PM them to me I'd appreciate it.  I'm curious as to how they will turn out.  320 pixel resolution would be perfect.

Gunstar: Could you post me the original files for those forest scenes and the Bengal tigers?  I want to ICE them up ... :)

Jmccorn: Very nice pictures. I may try some ICE pictures of these. Its been a while since I messed with them. The android pic would do well in MIN mode.
