Default Re: It's official. HD DVD is dead.

Well, it's because older movies with CG in it weren't made for HD at that time. Filmmakers weren't thinking of HD, only SD where they doesn't have to worry so much about errors being exposed to viewers. Also they didn't have budget or technology to do super realistic looking CG scenes at that time.

Now that HD is here, all filmmaker starts to think about it and few went ahead and re-do some special effects or whatnot, mainly for HD releases. Also they have kind of budget/technology to do all for realistic looking CG scenes which are more suitable for HD.
