Some guys just made a car out of Lego.
it could not distinguish between what was on the screen and real life.
That's ridiculous, as I was trying to tell Katie Couric only the other day. Wouldn't let me get a word in edgeways though.
Well, for a start, 24 doesn't go nicely into 60 so if you do have a particular keyframe position that you want to keep precisely, you'll need to work carefully around it.
It may also be that you've specially keyed an object's position (perhaps camera position for a cut to another angle) in two neighbouring frames for a particular effect, but interpolating between those positions for the extra frames just doesn't work. Or you might end up with an intersection of objects which didn't happen on the original frames.
Then you've also got the problem of extending the number of frames at either end of a scene. Suppose you have (for simplicity's sake) three frames in a scene:
and you want to triple the framerate. No problem, just stick two extra frames in for each existing frame:
Ah. Where do you get the two extra frames you need at the end? There's nowhere for the animation to go because (quite possibly) you only keyed right up to frame G originally, and that was the frame you wanted to end the shot on (as a hobbyist editor, one can get pretty picky about that). You could insert frames at the beginning of the scene, but that's the same problem. You could stretch the whole scene out more - here by inserting three frames between AD and DG - but then you'll be altering different scenes by slightly different amounts.
They'll also be less motion blur with a higher framerate, so errors that may have been covered up might become more noticeable.
If our government commits an illegal act, who is able to enforce it?
Not only that, but (I am assured by those with better knowledge of the stories) a lot of the stories were about situations where the three laws weren't sufficient.
What do you need from me?
Just your name, address, favourite pet's name and cup size.
Perspective is such a wonderful thing
Not from where I'm standing.
The desert scenes were filmed on Mars.
I would, but I'm not sure you exist, so there's probably no point.
which claimed as many as fifty prevented attacks
Are you sure they didn't say "up to fifty prevented attacks"? Zero counts!
No, I mean that's what the documentation seems to say.
Where can that be found? The closest thing I've found amounts to little more than a speculative brochure.
The answer is, of course, fuck all.
What the author meant was:
Here's what I think about project management skills, and here are a few vaguely coincidentally similar situations in sci-fi movies to make me look nerdcool
I don't see anything in the article to suggest this would be for the carrier, and not the owner, to control.
Glass half empty much?
Most likely this is just a method to take away one of subscriber's freedoms - to become somebody else's subscriber.
Why do you assume that?
