Crusade VHS sales promo video


I have converted the Crusade sales promo for the VHS video tape collection into
extremely high quality RealVideo format. Check it out and relive the memories!

"In our darkest hour, the fate of
all humanity rests not with warriors,
but with those that seek the truth."

Thanks! That was fun and being in the US, I would have never seen that video otherwise. /ubbthreads/images/icons/smile.gif
Very well done advert!!!.....thanx for posting it

hey, do you have any other ad's, trailers in high quality????

- i have a lot of low quality ones......my favs are the tnt versions of the ad for B5 and the ad for ITB - but they are all so low quality or low frame rate
All Crusade episodes were filmed in widescreen.

I have also converted the Crusade episode introduction
into RealVideo format at 22 frames per second and
moderate high quality 280 kb/sec resolution.

I assumed as much - I was wondering if the vhs release was the widescreen version

hey, how about the CGI, was it rendered in widescreen or was it like B5 (not renedered in widescreen but designed to look best once cropped)

Correct, only in PAL format vcr's, i have found some that will play both PAL and NTSC format tapes, just have to check around, and they cost abit, check amazon.com, i've seen them there, but you have to be lucky and find it when they have them in stock, they don't get very many.

Great for you NZ, but here in the US, you are lucky if you can find one, and even luckier if you can find it for under $300.00 (US) <font color=red>no rudeness intended in the post, sorry if anyone thought i was being sarcastic or something originally.</font color=red>

the biggest problem with us is that the vcr's have to be NTSC first and then any other format second, b/c it has to be primarily compatible with the US's NTSC tv's.

It's a big bumber to have all these Format differences in all of our media.
well at least with VHS it was not intentional like DVD zones!!!

VCR's are so cheap here /ubbthreads/images/icons/smile.gif
There really isn't much of a market of PAL capable vcr's here. The only time it matters is when getting a foreign video tape and that is rare enough not to be a big issue.

<font color=red>Don't get me started on DVD Zones</font color=red>/ubbthreads/images/icons/mad.gif They really tick me off. If i manage to win the lottery down here in Texas or something, then i'll buy the multi-format VCR and all the PAL video tapes from the U.K, copy them to NTSC tapes, and give them away to all of you.
No profit involved, so it's legal/ubbthreads/images/icons/wink.gif

Uh huh,Sure ya are/ubbthreads/images/icons/wink.gif I'm just going to wait for the DVD sets, with Star Trek doing theirs, B5 won't be far behind.
Thanks , those videos were awesome.
YOU wouldn't happen to have (or know where I can get) similar quality videos of the titles sequences for each season of B5?
