Totally shameless A/B comparison to show what a train wreck Female Leopard was before I worked on it, and a peek at what the actual DVD encode of the scene looks like. I went out of my way to find a chunk of the film that shows both the issues on the source and the artifacts that the fix cause. I hate tiled Japanese bathrooms almost as much as I do ornate Italian wall paper - both are basically asking to get raped into oblivion by any DVNR and scratch repair tools out there. Still wish I had added just a bit of grain on top to hide the fact that I only got rid of about 3/4 of the source noise, but ah well.
