Babylon 5 CGI on youtube

I came across this video on youtube. Makes one wonder what B5 would look like if it was remade today. Very nice CGI http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ut4XW...eature=related

Hmmm...Video doesn't seem to work for me, maybe he's taken it down, for some retooling? (Unless it's my firewall?)

Re: Babylon 5 CGI on youtube

That was really great. Makes me hanker for a blu-ray release with new effects.

It played in very stilted fashion on my Droid, but only when I selected Browser not YouTube, and then would never play again.

Looks pretty. But what were they talking about? Crusade?

That's a helluva question. I doubt it's about anything "Official" ....i.e. from Warner Brothers, unless it's a bit of unauthorized or pseudo-unauthorized leaking

It sure does look beautiful (even if it is rampant copyright infringement), but for me, Babylon 5 was never about how good (or not) the CGI was.

Re: Babylon 5 CGI on youtube

It's for a fan-made project titled "Dark Rage". I don't think the effects are necessarily any better than B5 seasons 4 or 5, which hold up quite well. The only problem with B5's effects in the 50 inch HDTV era is pixel resolution.
