Resident Evil 6 | QHD/60FPS+ Upscaled Pre-Rendered Cutscenes
By Nom_Nom✔
There is few pre-rendered cutscenes in this game, similarly to Resident Evil 5. Therefore, it would not take much effort into upscaling and using frame interpolation software. The WMV3 files used in this game impose a lot of restrictions.

I will be making multiple versions of this upscales, including 720p@60, 720p@120, 1080p@30, 1080p@60, and 1440p30.
This is due to the limitations of using WMP within the game to playback video files, specifically WMV (Windows Media Video).

Introduction
Using both Topaz VEAI and Flowframes (for frame interpolation), I have managed to upscale and (hopefully) implemented frame interpolation into the pre-rendered cutscenes for this game.

However, 4K does not have frame interpolation support as no software can concurrently convert into WMV at 4K@60. If anyone wants to support me in this regard, let me know.

There are many limitations embedded within this game. The game used to be able to withstand 4K WMV files but now crashes upon playback. Therefore, the upscales are up to 1440p/QHD.

Join my Discord Server[discord.gg] for future upscales. I do usually state extensive information about video playbacks and limitations in games such as this.

More pictures are on Nexus Mods. Steam has 2MB image size limitation that 1440p & 4K PNG images can quickly exceed.
Download & Installation Instructions
This upscale is hosted on Nexus Mods. This requires a free account to be able to download on Nexus Mods.

If you wish to download interpolated pre-rendered cutscenes, see optional files. You will see 60fps and 120fps. The game is locked at 120fps.

I have not tested the upscales to be installed via Fluffy's Mod Manager, however I have packaged the files to be compatible with the mod manager, so give it a try!

My bad. Permissions should be fixed on the Discord Server. (Assuming you are in the support channel),

If that is the case, then re6logo.wmv has a high bitrate. I will try to get this resolved and uploaded as soon as I can.

Well ... e5110.wmv (the leon plane crash) and e5120.wmv (the rocket that explodes on the city) runs well in the game. It is only rhe6logo.wmv that runs in slow motion.

(I tried to get into the chat on Discord, but it tells me that I did not have permission to send message) XD

Also could you come over to my Discord Server as it is better to help you out rather than on here.

They supposedly meant to be using VBR/Variable Bitrate, so it is only using 80k+ kbps on frames that demands the bandwidth to playback 1080p 60FPS.

You could try AVS video converter. Since that is the only converter that supports WMV3 codec. And yeah it is not the PC specs. WMP is limited to one or two CPU cores to process videos, which makes 4K playback unlikely or any other qualities/framerates.

I think it may be because of the bitrate, which is very high with +80k kbps
Do you know what program I could try to convert one of the files to lower the bitrate?
I don't think it's the PC specs. WMP runs the videos fine.

Well, re6logo.wmv is the only one I've tried in the game, which is the one in the intro.

What if you use 720p 60FPS? Also is it a specific video that is running slowly or is it all of them?

That is odd. They are working fine on my side. What are your hardware specs?

Videos run perfectly fine in Windows Media Player, but in-game they run in slow motion.
I'm using 1080p 60fps

Not yet. I am currently working on making one for RE5.
