Well there's this thing called photoshop.... [Roll Eyes]
I have to admit I get rather annoyed when people slap on the "CGI" label and assume it's all done by computers. Allot of what we saw in LoTRs obviously relied heavily on traditional miniature work, though the untrained eye seams to have trouble appreciating that just because it's a model, doesn't mean it can't be digitally enhanced and just because it's CG, doesn't mean there isn't a real element in there somewhere.

Well, when you mention "CGI" (AKA: Computer Generated Images) I think it's fairly logical to come to the conclusion that it's mainly done by computers. But that's just me. [Big Grin]

As I said, the assumption that something is "CGI" and applying that label to anything involving computer in the first place is part of what often vexes me.
The key word there is "Generated". It's very misleading.

Indeed. I think of it more as "Computer Guided Imagery".

Well, sorta yes and no- a lot of all-CGI effects have a video-game quality (sit through Van Helsing for this) and there's the movies with only CGI (that dreadful Final Fantasy movie or the Starship Troopers series) that obviously uses no models...

The line is really blurring with traditional filming of real scenes/objects being enhanced (sometimes frame-by-frame).

God, don't even remind me of Starship Troopers. Just saw the third one yesterday, absolutely terrible. Didn't even show Jolene Blalock's boobs, total waste of time.

I thought they were going to do the book's "power armor" in the third movie (I know I saw the second, but I must have blocked it from memory).

The T&A in the first movie (Dina Meyer!) is the best part...though I confess....it's somehow a movie I watch whenever it's on TV.

The movie is based on religion. At one point they literally get on their knee's and start praying for God to come and kill them all. It doesn't bother me BECAUSE it's religion, you just have to see it to understand.

And the suits get only a 10 second shoot'em up sequence.

Here's an unusual one, they're auctioning tapes that were used to play animations on the Enterprise B computers. Link.

Wow! Is this still going? That's a prety cool lot, but I'm not gonna pay 65 quid for ten videos I can't watch. Probably beta, anyway.

It's been going on since the last time this thread was posted in, but nothing of interest has turned up. Some items have been put up half a dozen times or more and they just can't shift them. It seems not everybody has more money than sense.
