With the changes and additions that have been made to Advent Children Complete, there are still some more things to see. Comparing the re-rendered and upscaled scenes from the Blu-Ray side by side to those of the original DVD have given a look at some more subtle alterations that make a big difference to the film. Clearer images, slightly altered expressions, as well as other changes can be seen below. The Advent Children Complete screenshot on the left, is paired with the original Advent Children image to the right. The last page holds a full gallery of 32 side by side images.
Check out the full list of images by following the link at the end of the article to see the list of changes, and check out the screenshots in full size. A huge thanks to our member CloudStrife1992 for getting the screenshots and compiling the images together.
The opening scene panning down into Cosmo Canyon has new lighting, and slightly different animation in the clouds.
As it pans down into the canyon on Nanaki and his two children, you can see a lot more color and detail in the background, and a much more desert-like sky.
The view over the top of Midgar is much more crisp, has more vivid colors and details. The water now reflects sunlight, and there is a great deal more detail in the distant hills and mountains.
The first view of the Northern Crater shows a change from the original lighting that is now more blue and less grey, and allows better view of the snow in the air.
Upon dropping down into the Northern Crater, Shinra’s helicopter looks slightly different, and there is a better view to the crater walls through the fog and clouds. You can also see the snow swirling around the helicopter blades.
