Cliveh,

Similar technology has been developed at MIT at 2006 and I saw its applications at many softwares.
You are giving an Ansel Picture to the software , it analysis its high frequency details and apply to your new picture. Its possible to mimic everything to everything , color and bw. I forgot to say it carries one histogram to other also.
Softwares uses preselected images and its details and zombie images appears at the screen.
I think if it would be possible to mimic some classic cinema frames , it would be great. I dont know whats going on at these softwares but crazy rat race is going on.
