  • Image editing in the movies

    ...and the only evidence they have is a surveillance video still shot from 100 yards away showing a blurry license plate. By pressing a couple of buttons, the technician is able to make the plate number clearly snap into focus

    Am I the only one that gets irritated when scenes like this happen in the movies? Or is there some software out there I'm not aware of?

    One of my favorite shows is CSI but I have seen them zoom in on a tiny image reflected of someones glasses in a photo and get the details of a road sign and I had the same thought. Not likely in this life time. Is that something like poetic license only photogenic license?

        My favorite miscue in the imaging department was in Jurassic Park where they showed all the computers that were controlling the park - they zoomed in to show that the computers were Apples, but then when they showed the screenshots, the screens were all Windoze!

          Hey, now there's having a sharp eye. I've seen that movie several times and never caught that one.

            I only noticed it because I'm a diehard Mac fan...

              Tent on Malolotja revisited
              by BigAl
              I recently asked my students, as part of an Internet awareness assignment, "What is the significance of the 'Tent on Malolotja'?". As this image was discussed in an earlier thread, I thought I'd share what the students found.

              What I was actually after was:
              • what had been done?
              • you
              ...

              "Remembering" vs. "Rewatching"
              by Doug Nelson
              I recently got into a conversation and mentioned that a movie they mentioned remembered better than it rewatched. The person I was speaking with had no idea what I was talking about, but I'd assumed everyone thought about movies in that way. Some movies simply seem better in the memory, even very recent...

              Stereo Microscope/Camera
              by thomasgeorge
              For those interested in getting up close and peering into the very small details of the photos which cross your path, there is no better way than doing it with a stereo low power microscope. While at first glance, such an insturment may seem unnecesssary and even slightly worthless to those engaged...

              OK, we have a thread for books, a thread for music, an entire forum for cooking, it's about time we had a thread for my favorite subject: movies.

              I'm a total moviephile. I have every movie channel our cable system offers, and netflix.com's biggest subscription package. And I wish I had...

              Sleeper Movies
              by Ed_L
              Do you have a sleeper movie that has become a favorite of yours? If so pass it on. Maybe others will enjoy it too. No "Gone With The Wind", "Citizen Kane", etc. Here's mine:

              "The Earthling"
              No, it's not a science fiction movie as the title might suggest....
