neat stuff there.
Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)
thats really cool
"What lies behind us and what lies before us are small matters compared to what lies within us."
Ralph Waldo Emerson
It doesn't really translate well on TV because we're used to all sorts of special effects on television, but I bet it looks pretty damn cool in person.
So, was the anchor able to see her as well, or was this just for the television audience?
It looked horrible. Like Princess Leah with blue static all around her.
I wasn't impressed with it on TV. Supposedly is looks a lot better when physically there.
Wow, a person standing in front of a greenscreen and motorized cameras. Whoop-ti-doodle.
It was so awful when they had to put remote reporters on a screen. How primative!
a long time ago I was forced to attend a star trek convention, kicking and screaming all the way in - I found myself in a big auditorium where they beamed up Scotty and a few other people in the audience.
Wolf could see her the same way weather reporters see what they're pointing at on an off camera screen. The concept isn't new, it's just that today's hi def streaming doesn't make it look as bad as it could have.
I think it would work best if both of them were 'teleported' together to a virtual stage which is becoming popular.
If she were standing in front of a greenscreen with a fixed camera, as she's digitally inserted into the studio that Wolf Blitzer is standing in, she'd always be facing the camera (like the monsters in Doom II), since that's what the footage is.
This special effect involves a green room with remotely-controllable cameras, so that as the studio camera moves (or they switch cameras at the studio), the remote cameras move to capture a shot from the same perspective.
