Talking TR5 FMV's 20th Anniversary 4K Remaster

Hey everyone,

Yeah, I know. It’s been too long! People have asked “Where is TR4 and 5?” “Has LeonDeka died?”

Well, rumors of my death have been gravely exaggerated. Sadly, these remasters just took way too long to do and were much fiddlier than the last ones. This is due to reduced computing power recently, busy with work and a home and family life. Trust me, it creeps up on you!

However, after a year and several arguments with MS Windows later, I finally have (what I consider to be) faithful remasters of the CGI cut-scenes from Tomb Raider 4 and 5.

And apologies if the wording looks similar, but I am posting this between 2 sub-forums to save time.

Now, I know that people have done these already, and you can go on YouTube and search for “TR4 4K upscale” and get 50 results. However, I feel the difference between the “I’m feeling lucky” search and myself is that I did pour a lot of love into each video I did. Manually syncing audio takes time (don’t ask) and finding the right algorithm for the style of the CGI and encoding does wear you out. Plus, I had to fiddle a bit with the colours too.

Regardless, after all this strife, it is done and it is complete!

As usual: YouTube links and Uncompressed Drive links are featured below!

I'm particularly excited to see these TR5 ones! I always remember the quality being a bit below average on these ones .

I would've thought you would use the PS1 version of FMV05 since it's the only one that doesn't look like it's forced into 256 colors. I have no idea why that somehow got passed quality control for the Dreamcast version. Also the audio and video don't appear synce up properly, probably because the video is too fast.

I think some of them are too dark, especially the opera one. But otherwise, they look great! Happy to see cutscenes from this gem remastered in full.

Actually yeah your right, there a lot darker,

i had a look on core-design site since it has all fmv psx and pc and i noticed the psx ere a lot brighter and less glitchy looking compared to pc

and there are few more out of sync issues here and there in the pc versions but the ps1 version seem much better synced, this is also the same with tomb raider 4 fmv's
