Default IMAGINA (The CGM Project)

The Computer Graphics in Movies Project is a project who's goal is to make a documentary on CG from 1973 to 1993.

This documentary would length 120 minutes but it's subject to increase. It will be encoded in MPEG-4 H.263 in the resolution of 704x384 with MP3 sound at 192 Kbps.

Several audios will be available :

- Original audios of the movies in original version subbed with informations about them (MP3 @ 192 Kbps)
- An audio commentary of the team on the documentary and the project itself (MP3 @ 128 Kbps)

Here is an excel file which shows the advancement of the project :

There's 10 people in this project :

- Krystatos : Encoding & Assembler, Checker, Fansubber, Off Voice
- Gorkab : Infographist, Encoder, Artistic Director, Project's Creator, Cinema's Credits Finder, Cinema's Credits Supplier, Off Voice
- Look That : Infographist, Cinema's Credits Supplier

- Zaknafein : Cinema's Credits Supplier
- Tidus San : Cinema's Credits Supplier
- Flo : Musician, Element of Social Cohesion
- Mr Bob : Cinema's Credits Supplier, Encoder

For the moment, 60 movies scenes have been encoded on 61 :

If some of you are wondering why a social element can be ****ing doing here, here is a little response in french :

Well, I remember the people in the tribunes, in the scene with the circus to be computer simulated. One of the first computer simulated scenes in movie history by the way :P

Mmm yeah sorry... I confused it with something else... Found it a bit strange myself too...

Ben Hur was one of the first movies where one created things that didn't existed in the picture. The simulation was done with other techniques, it weren't computer graphics as suspected, sorry... ops:

Two New films added...

- Labyrinth (1986)
- In The Line Of Fire (1993)


Those two movies are now on downloading and both has AC3 sound, they are also in XviD and DivX.

So for the moment, despite my Premiere & After Effects problems for the black lines, there is 48 scenes encoded on 55 !

The last encoded scene is the horrible morphing made for Ghostbusters 2 (1989) :
