Visual Updates of Advent Children Complete

by April 22, 2009 0 comments


The flames a lot more crisp, and rise higher. The rubble of Nibelheim is also more visible underneath the flames.


Cait Sith is riding his moogle, instead of Red XIII’s head, and Barret doesn’t have a shirt under his vest anymore. You can also see Tifa’s boot throughout the shot. It never dissapears behind Red XIII like it did in AC.


The shot of the lifestream rushing across the planet to intercept Meteor and Holy has been completely revised, showing a a darker green in the lifestream, and greater amount of detail in the land that it’s rushing across.


The clear/liquid blue energy of Holy, the dark/rocky surface of Meteor, and the lifestream are all in a much better contrast, allowing a huge amount of detail to be seen.


The lighting inside 7th Heaven is greatly improved, falling more realistically on the papers on the walls, as well as the metallic surfaces of the walls. The medical book is shown in the foreground on the desk.

    A lot of these new changes were so awesome. The animation is so much better!

    I especially thought that the scene with Sephiroth in the first was particularly more badass.

    It’s absolutely gorgeous.

    Just when I thought, back in 2005, that they couldn’t surpass what they had created they come up with ACC 4 years down the road and blew my mind once again.

    Yeah I also noticed lot of differences when I watched the movie (yesterday *_*). Colors are better and I like the realistic effect they put on characters like blood, dirt and water. Also I totally love the new flashback about Zack. He’s a really great character and in the previous movie, the images of Cloud’s memory were too blueish and less clear.

    Wow, those blu-ray pictures are beautiful. Just when I thought the graphics in the original couldn’t get better….I was just proven wrong in a major way… =D

    I thought I noticed a lot of the changes, but this really points out the subtle differences in lighting and such. The change in lighting on Cloud’s face is particularly striking.

    looks like they made an effort to de-ugly things a bit and give us something to look at other than grayish blobs

    Did you all purposely leave out the changes in Aerith’s character?

    I kind of thought the graphic difference for Aerith during the church scene was much more significant then say Tifa’s or Kadaj’s changes.

    Guess it doesn’t matter, though.

    I’ve REALLY been looking for a screenshot of this movie, it’s the one of Zack’s sword at the end of the movie, after the credits IN GOOD QUALITY. I’d really like to have a rather huge picture of it for some graphic work, can someone PLEASE get a screenie of it for me?

    Send it to julietnoknife(at)live(dot)ca or leave me a note hwere to get it here, by email or leave me a message on my deviantart account (connected to my name on here as a link)
