I. Description of Cinematic Glitching
Cinematic Glitching is the alteration of in-game cinematic segments by moving in-game objects to target places located on the Field-Of-View of the virtual cameras that "shoot" the Cinematics prior to the playback of a Cinematic.
This is possible due to the fact that Halo 3: ODST's cinematics are rendered in real-time by the Halo 3's graphics engine, rather than being pre-rendered videos.


II. List of Glitchable Cinematics
Bellow will be shown images of cinematics before being glitched and after being glitched.
The possibilities are endless: you can place any object anywhere, but we have a thing for Plinths. :)

IV. SGP Guide Update Procedure
SGP Guides are initially created in a "Work-In-Progress" (WIP) board as a separate topic.  The WIP topic is where members discuss, edit, and eventually approve "release versions" of the guide.  Release Versions are then copied to the main "SGP Guides" board and set to read-only.  The WIP topic remains open for replies in order to accommodate future updates.

If you would like to propose an emendation to this GUIDE (correction, addition, etc.), the WIP topic can be found here.
