Raster Vision examples:
open/close all folders
- Perhaps the earliest example comes from "Captain TVideo," a spoof on Captain Video that appeared in a 1954 issue of MAD magazine (still a comic book at the time). Every single panel is covered with hand-drawn horizontal lines, which add to the spoof's running joke that the production values of Captain Video were terrible (which, by all accounts, they were).
- Common in the films of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
- Averted in Videodrome, which is credited as being the first film to feature low-flicker television.
- Used in stylized form on the poster's logo, however.
- Used for a Video Phone showing only the back of the President's head in The Crazies (1973). note
- Used in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope for the holograms. This is an early use of Raster Vision as an aesthetic - the crummy holograms fit in with the worn-out nature of the tech shown in the movies.
- Seen on the Nostromo's various computer monitors in Alien (but see Alien: Isolation under video games, below).
- Vertical raster bars appear on the TV set inside the Construct in The Matrix.
- Once La Résistance has unlocked the data from the mind of Johnny Mnemonic, J-Bone hijacks the airwaves to wide-band (broadcast) the cure for Neural Attenuation Syndrome to the masses. His broadcast is twitchy and low-resolution, but still coherent. This undermines the Evil Plan of Pharmakom and the Yakuza to keep much of humanity tethered to a cure to the disorder they created.
- In the original RoboCop (1987), the title character sees in raster lines after becoming a cyborg.
- On the close-up shots of televisions in Lethal Weapon.
- In the holographic interface in Paycheck.
- Used for some (but not all) video screens in Interstellar.
- Appears on the final TV screen shown in Don't Breathe.
- Used not only for video footage but for the poster of Europa Report.
- Contact features a lot of this, with a whole scene dedicated to showing a science team trying to make sense of a TV signal from deep space.
- Appears on the spaceship's black and white monitors screen in Ascension.
- In the video for "Ghost", part of the Mystery Skulls Animated series, this effect is used for a flashback... as shown in a picture frame...
- The video for "Weird Al" Yankovic's "Word Crimes" includes a snippet recreating the Windows 95 desktop as seen on a CRT monitor.
- Used for the opening seconds of Meghan Trainor's "NO" video.
- Used in the video for "Crack" by The Left Rights (the part that recreates Super Mario Bros.)
- Occurs naturally on the CRT Video Phone screens in Babylon 5.
- Appears in the period-correct screens on Stranger Things.
- Appears on the TV screens in The Man in the High Castle (which, somewhat oddly, are 16:9 CRTs - in the 1960s.)
- Used in the archival footage in the Netflix documentary series Wild Wild Country.
- In order to recreate the feel of the Nostromo from Alien in Alien: Isolation, CRT screens were videotaped, with that footage then dropped into the game and displayed on in-game screens for the proper analog feel.
- Used for the dispenser screens in Team Fortress 2.
- Used on the futuristic computer screens of the Combine in Half-Life 2
- Shown in SOMA. Especially odd for the setting, being in the year 2104 using flat-screen monitors.
- Raster lines appear as an overlay on kill screen playbacks in Overwatch.
- The Stella Atari 2600 emulator includes some optional effects to simulate a CRT TV.
- The outro for Game Grumps takes the form of a CRT screen (with the show's logo burned into it).
