Re: WB considering HD update

I was watching some of this last night....

I think we need to get them on Babylon 5 immediately. It is amazing, and a bit frightening, what people can do with visual imagery these days.

Re: WB considering HD update

You may have seen, there have been some fan attempts to reformat B5 for HD, though obviously not to the same level as Star Wars fans, but it's a taster of what's possible.

Yes I've seen them and it hurts to watch.

I sooooooooo hope Lyta's Shadow is right, but you know watching clips like these reminds me that WB likely won't put as much care or effort into any attempts they make.

Re: WB considering HD update

FYI, there's a fan project on Reddit, apparently upscaling the footage to 4k via AI techniques. Still early days.

There's already a full HD upconvert available done by a fan, again, check reddit for P2P links.

Re: WB considering HD update

I just feel like I would have picked a different clip. I mean the scene is fine, I've just always cringed at that "Oh boy" and the end.

Thanks for sharing Ubik.

Who knows if they'll get it done, but seems like a good time when many are restricted in terms of going out and doing 'real world' stuff.
