Tychus Findlay Prison Release Cinematic. Starcraft 2: Wings of Liberty. Trailer (Reformatted 16:9)

Published on 10 Feb 2019 / In Gaming

"They say a man never really knows himself... until his freedom's been taken away. I wonder... how well do you know yourself?" - Arcturus Mengsk on the day of Findlay's release. Findlay was sentenced to cryonic imprisonment, designated as Convict 626. His rap sheet included convictions for narcotics violations, theft, jailbreak, piracy, grand larceny and murder, and he was a suspect in other murders. He was sentenced to death, but the sentence was later commuted to solitary cryogenic incarceration for life. He was still a prisoner after the fall of the Confederacy, in the era of the Terran Dominion.

Eventually, in 2504, Emperor Arcturus Mengsk offered Findlay a deal. In exchange for freedom, Findlay would assassinate Sarah Kerrigan or possibly have him attack Raynor. Findlay agreed and was released, sealed inside his old Confederate CMC armor; only upon completing the task would he be freed from the armor. If he refused to follow his orders, the suit would shut down his major organs. The release was masked as another convict becoming an indentured marine. Findlay could communicate with Mengsk with infrequent encrypted communications.

For his part, Findlay initially claimed to have escaped from New Folsom Prison while being transferred and killing a dozen guards with his bare hands. Later Findlay claimed he was freed by the Moebius Foundation, and he was sealed in his armor until his debt to them was repaid.

That's initial cinematic video to Starcraft 2: Wings of Liberty (2010) PC Game.

Well, since I liked in general what I got with the previous videos, I decided to reformat this one to 1080p Full HD ratio (that is 16:9) as well... Originally video was 1920:818 (that is 2,35:1, close to the movie widescreen ratio of 2,39:1). But if you don't have the monitor with that aspect ratio (and I very doubt that you do), you'll get "black lines" above and below video that I personally don't like. But I didn't simply "rescaled" the video - thus you would miss many important details, because in some frames the meaningful part is located not at the very center but on the left or right side of the frame. So, I cut the original video into 50 pieces defined but the scene and keyframes and imposed different scaling, spatial interpolation, i.e. transitions, to each of the pieces. Thus almost nothing notable material from the video was lost.
