I think I recall seeing an image->ASCII converter once, for small pictures.. I wouldn't be surprised if someone made a big one, and just did that for all the frames in the sequence. Or something like that. Pretty cool stuff. I don't think I could stand to watch the whole movie that way though. ;D

it's probably related to this line-

var delay=80; // <---- delay after each frame

Is this the Matrix or the Matrix Reloaded? I just don't want to take the time to download 4.4 MB of a spoiler =)

The poster has demanded we remove all his contributions, less he takes legal action.
We have done so.
Now Tyberius Prime expects him to start complaining that we removed his 'free speech' since this message will replace all of his posts, past and future.
Don't follow his example - seek real life help first.

InSiDeR: mr.maX has always been here - if checked the roll call you'd find that he never missed a day (unfortunately these are kept securely locked away).

I don't really see what's so interesting about it. So someone ran an image -> ASCII program on part of a film, big deal.

I knew a bunch of software engineering students who wrote a program to convert full motion digital video into ASCII animations like this in real-time. Now that was impressive, epically when viewed on a big projection screen. Would make for a rather unique web cam too =)

Although, what is interesting is that you can zip that 4.4mb HTML file down to 480k -- most likely due to the overly redundant and repetitive nature of ASCII art.

I programmed an image to ascii converter once in php (needs mySQL for the char-db).
here's a link if somebody's interested: http://sourceforge.net/projects/img2ascii/
It's quite slow though, naturally. I'm pretty content with the results, here's an example of a gradient from white to black: http://switch.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/img2ascii/gradient_natural.html

The movie looks quite nice, though it would look way better with more letters. It just uses about 15 of around 170 possible different charactres, what would result in better grayscales.

cheers, Gweilo

Well, that's nice, but image to ascii is one thing, DVD to ascii is another
