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! ;-)
