So, this is kinda random but I figured I'd share anyway.
A friend of mine got rear-ended the other night in downtown San Jose, and the dude drove off without stopping. Her dash cam caught the offending vehicle pulling back into traffic, but she said it was "too blurry" to see the license plate.
Hitfilm to the rescue!
I got a copy of the footage from her, denoised it, did some sharpening, and eventually managed to get a solid frame of the truck. Unfortunately, someone's headlights had blown the plate out completely, making it totally illegible. Still, I was a bit excited to be able to play CSI, if only for all of ten minutes.
