Wow, they're going to re-render all of the old episodes in HD.

South Park: TV's Longest Week

 Quote:
Although Comedy Central won’t be HD until January 2009, “South Park” episodes are already being produced in HD. An even bigger task is going back to re-render the first 174 episodes!

“We’ve always been digital pack rats, so we still have all the Maya (and before season 5, Alias PowerAnimator) scene files we used to create the show,” says J.J. “Since HD has become a real possibility, we’ve started re-rendering all those old episodes at full 1080p, which also means re-framing all the shots from standard 4:3 to full 16:9.

“It’s very labor intensive, but it also means that we’ll be the only animated show from the pre-HD world that will have its entire catalog of episodes in full native 1080p. It’s pretty sweet.”


I'm sure glad they have money.

I hope they don't just stretch some scenes to reformat.

"Oh my God... You've stretched Kenny"

"You Bastards!"

-- You will be able to see the scissor marks on the paper cutouts they use.

-- The six to seven total colors they use will look more vibrant.

-- It will reduce motion blur when the heads of Terrance and Phillips separate from their jaws as they speak.

But most excitingly!

-- For the first time, we will be able to truly identify if Scuzzlebutt does indeed have David Hasselhoff for a left leg.

I dunno. I've been enjoying the fact that the Simpsons have (finally) gone hi-def. It doesn't change the content, but the same could be said about any programming material.

But if someone ever does 'Eat Bart's shorts,' do you really want to see that in HD?

OR

Is it Edna krabappel that you want to see in high definition?
