Wing Commander 4 DVD was only originally sold as part of the Creative Labs Encore 2x/5x DVD-ROM bundles, and Prophecy DVD was also given the high quality DVD treatment and scheduled to be included in a later Creative Labs set. Unfortunately it was replaced by a non-upgraded version of Freespace on a DVD, but AD has found a few mentions of the final product when it was slated for release. The first is a hardware site in the Czech Republic that mentioned the possible inclusion of the game in the original 5x drive bundle. The FilmLook company also talked about their role in the high quality transfer of Prophecy's video sequences.
AUSTIN--Origin Systems, producers of the legendary Wing Commander series of CD-ROM games, has completed postproduction and authoring of "Wing Commander- -Prophecy" for the DVD-ROM platform, with live action sequences shot in digital betacam and processed in FILMLOOK.
The last bit was premature. Prophecy DVD was never mass produced, but at least there's always our behind the scenes costume continuity polaroids.
This is the first time that FILMLOOK has been incorporated into the DVD-ROM format. The game includes feature film-style live action sequences, shot on digital betacam and given FILMLOOK processing and final color correction before DVD authoring and compression. The "Wing Commander--Prophecy" DVD-ROM is available at computer software retailers nationwide.
