The last Mac vs. PC video?
« on: January 14, 2009, 12:27:35 PM »
Fun video, VERY well done.

It’s amazing that a small production can do match moves (tracking camera motion from video, then inserting virtual objects) so well. At this rate, it feels like we might not even need actors in a decade or two. ;)

Cute :)

I'm not that fond of the visual style of the robots though, and sound effects could have used a bit more work (like, when falling and hitting the floor). I'm not sure what to think about the "balls" thing - is it funny or just too corny? The "upgrading to WinXP" was silly.

But other than that, a great little piece, and some nice transforms and terminators clichés there - I hope they make a few more.

So the Macs win by bullying .... and now in the real world ...

It is particularly nice that the Macs who bully are traditional 3 part PCs with enormous processor boxes - none of your namby-pamby slimline pretty white boxes.

Yes, there was a bit of corniness to it all, but well rendered corniness, to be sure.

I'm guessing here, but...
the moral of the story is it takes 3 Macs with automatic weapons to beat 1 PC in a fist fight...?

Wouldn't it be a riot if it turned out it was done on a Linux box? ;D
