I do wish (modern) Corrie would sort out the frame rate of their occasional CGI elements. The robin Mary’s been talking to in recent episodes looked like it had been rendered in 25ps giving it a filmic look.

I’ve noticed this effect quite a few times before, meaning CGI sequences often look quite jarring and unrealistic. Surely it can’t be a major thing to produce it to match the rest of the programme.


They managed to render the tram crash CGI in 50i, after all.

They also did a fantastic job in simulating Kevin’s son’s amputated leg a while back...



I even wondered at the time if they’d hired an amputee actor for the role in advance of the storyline.

But then at other times they produce something shoddy in the wrong frame rate. Perhaps one of the designers on the show has got the wrong render settings saved on his computer. Wink

The robin looked more like stock footage than CGI to me.

Edit: speaking of the tram crash, does anyone have a 50i recording of it?

I suspect it’s stock footage of a robin, placed in the scene by computer. I’m not sure if that strictly qualifies as CGI or not.
