    Default Over CGI'd?

    In S12 and 3, the water effects looked real.

    Now come mid season 4, the water looks like jello..

    I'm talking about at roughly 17min in when the jumper is flying to Atlantis, after they recruit the travelers..

    Anyone agree?

    The in-house screwed up, again. The gate only had 8 chevrons.

    One thing I was wondering, did everyone think the scaling was right? As in not 'Camelot' style. If I had to say one thing it was the hives looked a little small compared to the other ships imo, they should've dwarfed all the other ships and I didn't see that in the battle.

    Why is that such a big deal? I never understand why that is such a big deal.

    Because it's down right retarded. What possible reason could they have for it, other than incompetence? It wouldn't be so bad if it had only happened once of twice, but they have been doing it since season 3 at least.

    It's not like they do it on purpose. Beisdes it's not that big of a deal since that chevron is pointless anyway.

    the final 2 are always embedded in the floor/ramp/whatever.

    Well it never has been utilized. So untill they decide to use it I'm not going to nitpick on that small detail.

    well it is just a minor detail. however I do agree with jenks, they did it right in the past why can't they do it again. it's certainly not that hard, just 9 chevrons instead of 8. it really doesn't bug me but I do see his point

    I see his point to it just doent bug me. The only time something bugged me in Stargate was the obvious stock shot in the very begining of the season 4 premire of SG-1.

    Here's the first full pegasus gate seen on sga

    So yeah, they do have 9 chevrons.

    And the 304/Hive size difference was wrong too

    veeeeeeeeeeery wrong

    I think he's talking about the space gate, which had 8 cheverons last night as I just checked on the iTunes episode. Not a huge deal but they should get on that. The sizing of the ships may seem off due to distance, keep in mind they were spread out all over the planet according to the council of war. If we say the Deadalus of the Apollo inside a hive it would probobly look similar to the image above.

    oh the gate they take to meet the wraith...
    forgot that one.

    maybe space gates dont use the 9th chevron at all, or are made by asurans or something... a race that has no idea what the 9th chevron is for?

    but yeah, shouldn't the 8th chevron be dark anyway?

    Don't try to justify the incompetence of the cgi people in the matter of cotinuity, they've confessed they don't care about it and they create animations just based on the coolness factor

    Care to state evidence for your rather bold claim?
