The Embedded World Fair in Nürnberg, Germany, is one of the largest events in Europe for embedded systems. This year, several Blender Open Movie productions were spotted by an anonymous reporter.

A team of 8 people in China re-made Tears of Steel. The result is not just a translated version – they COMPLETELY redid all the footage and changed a fair bit of the CG as well. I think this is the most impressive proof of the Open Content philosophy of the Blender Foundation so far!
The Blender Foundation has finished re-rendering Tears of Steel with sponsoring from the Amsterdam Cinegrid Consortium. They’re in the process of uploading a new files, but as a spin-off, a higher quality HD version of the movie is now available.
The Blender Foundation has released over 4 terabytes of Ultra-HD footage from Tears of Steel under a CC-BY license. Their previous movies have all become standard demo material for HD equipment, and I’m convinced you will see this footage everywhere in the Ultra-HD market this year.
The Blender Institute has secured funding for a re-render of Tears of Steel in 4K. This means an ‘Ultra-HD’ version will become available as well. I guess that’s good news for people who spend a fortune on one of these new tv’s – at least now they have something to watch! ;-)
