Low Quality Cutscenes

[ Edited ]
9 replies 392 views Edited Jun 3, 2013

Maybe it's just me, but when I played the demo, the opening cutscene looked really "grainy" & "pixelated".

 

It looked as if ND just downloaded the video from the internet, & put it in the game.

 

I find it odd, becuase in the trailers, TLoU cutscenes look INCREDIBLE

 

Is it just me? Did anyone else notice this?Smiley Frustrated

Looked fine to me. And far from low quality.  

 

Low quality seems a tad harsh. 

 

I just watched it right now and it looks fine to me. A tad dark, but that it.

I think it's because it was raining and dark. Looked misty to me.

Since cutscenes are prerendered videos, there is a chance that ND might have compressed them more aggressively for this demo.

Isn't the entire demo heavily compressed? It seems awfully small considering the amount of content, I would have expected it to be shorter for that size.

I wouldn't call 2GB for a 5min demo awfully small. The entire game is supposed to be 26GB and it will offer at least 10 hours of gameplay.

I was merely talking about the videos, not the actual gameplay rendering quality.

Heh everyone I've seen has taken about 12 minutes on it.

 

Wouldn't personally know if it can be done in 5 minutes. If I had it I would have tried that though.

Don't forget, this isn't even the whole cutscene, only a snip it of it. I would like it if the camera looked like it had rain on it, or had saw dust on it in the cutscenes. It would look cool, imo.
