Buying an HD tv and buying a Blu-Ray player just so I can start buying Blu-Ray disks isn't a luxury I can afford anymore, and could take months or even next year before I'd have enough money. Due to my dabbling with 3d, I am interested in seeing how effects were changed. But CGI doesn't thrill me as much as it probably should, simply because I've worked with 3d and know how some of the effects could have been accomplished. Two things I've never quite learned to do though, are particle effect explosions and transporter effects in 3d. And I never seem to have my ships moving fast enough in battle scenes. My capital ships come out okay, but my fighters always look like they're going twenty miles an hour, even with moving starfields.
