I repeat my previous question : until the 3.33 DVD/BD aren't released outside of Japan, we can't put on the character's bio box on the upper-right their post-2.0 allegiance to WILLE, or Mari and Asuka's mental age of 28, or it's OK?
Also, can we be sure that the character ages in NTE are the same that in NGE, like are we sure that Misato is 29, Ritsuko 30 or Gendo 48 in 1.0? If there isn't any source stating their NTE, how do we put their 3.0 age? We take the one already listed and we add 14 years?

Also, is there a convention about the uploading of images? For example, in the screenshots of Rebuild category(which I uses a lot lately), the image of the 3.0 section of Lilith seconds before exploding into LCL is called "Eva3-33 C1241 lilith.jpg"

So the image name is divided into three parts :
- the name of the movie ("Eva3-33")
- a code composed of the letter "C" and a number ("C1241")
- an eventual name for the image ("lilith")

OK so to what corresponds the second part of the name?("C1241")

Seriously, that is the most fananked theory I've ever heard, more than Mari being Marty McFly travelling through time to keep her parents (Asushin) together. -- Jäeger

The cut number in the screenplay. I'm not sure where we're getting those from for Q already, though.

I really need to make a proper post and wiki page about this. I'm busy with RL projects at the moment, but for now I can say that the cut numbers come from official script books, and also that Reichu has compiled an extensive list of named screenshots and thumbnails for all three new movies and almost all of the old NGE series.

For now, collections of these thumbnails these can be found at the following links


Image thumbnail list images  SPOILER: Show



WARNING: 6MB+ Files

Right click to save and don't be downloading these twice.


I'll zip these up eventually one of these days. Ideally, most of these thumbs should be put up on the wiki somewhere.

http://evageeks.org/temp/1.11_thumbs.jpg
http://evageeks.org/temp/2.22_thumbs.jpg
http://evageeks.org/temp/3.33_thumbs.jpg

These thumbs are all on the wiki anyway, but People might need the reference if they want to upload a larger version.

Some minor thoughts on uploading screenshots (of the films).

Personally, I think that an image size of 640px wide is large enough for most purposes, unless there are tiny details which need say a 960px version. 1200px wide is almost certainly too much. Consider uploading a 320px version if you just need a wide/non-detailed shot.

Also Remember to save image in jpg format. Quality level 85 is good enough for most purposes, though you may need to increase the color sampling factor for images which contain a lot of red (i.e. most 3.0 images).

Thank you for the references OMF! :asuka_thumbsup:

By the way, how do you resize the screenshots to make them 640px wide? I use VLC and the options only have the choice of the image format.


On a side note, I'm surprised how early the final scene of 3.0 was created, even before the final battle! Was the staff that eager to create Asuka manhandling Shinji? :lol:

IrfanView is a great piece of software for doing loads of simple and quick image manipulation like resizing, saving as different formats, doing all the above in batches etc. I can not recommend it enough.

Well that's the fun part about having the actual BD instead of a rip: it comes with loads of extra goodies.

If someone is interested in them, I've got all those screenshots for episodes 05-26 in all their 480p unprocessed PNG glory. They're somewhere around 10 GB, though.
