SHERRYPIE SHOOTS FIRST! Nah, just kidding! 🙂
I’ve been doing this remaster thing now two years randomly. It’s almost done. I’ve re-opened all the old Lightwave 3D scenes (some scenes were modifed 15 years ago!), tweaked the lighting, render settings, camera settings – and added some 3d volumetric particle effects, mostly explosions. And added more debris everywhere! I thought the edit was perfect 10 years ago but now it feels quite slow in many places – we just were not that good editors. I guess I have learned something during these years. The new edit feels much snappier – also some new scenes have been included in new edit.
It’s great to have more than 200x the CPU horsepower compared to what I had 10 years ago…. More details about the process later but for know, check out this small clip what’s coming up for the REMASTERED VERSION. And before somebody asks, why not 1080P (although youtube says it is 1080P, it is only for getting a better bitrate)? The source material wasn’t just good enough (the shot material, 3d models etc). So 720P was the optimal solution.
