Frame interpolation software `` Dain-App '' that moves animation and movies slimy using AI



The software ' Dain-App ' that can interpolate frames and express them smoothly even for videos with low frame rates has been released as an alpha version. AMD's Fluid Motion and SVP are known as frame interpolation technologies, but Dain-App recognizes the depth of space in the video called `` DAIN '' and gives priority to objects closer to the viewer than objects far away. Frame interpolation is realized using AI that samples and interpolates intermediate frames.
