Digital Pictures

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum


Digital Pictures was a company specializing in video games featuring exclusively FMV for gameplay that were usually released on the Sega CD/Mega-CD, 3DO and Windows.

Logo (October 15, 1992-1996, 2017)

Visuals: On a black background, a green globe appears incredibly close to the screen and starts to zoom out until stopping in the middle of the screen (now being quite small). A red shape resembling a "d" zooms out and rotates placing itself on the left of the globe and a blue shape resembling a "p" places itself on the right of the globe.

"Digital Pictures"

fades-in above.


  • Occasionally, the logo would feature the text "Licensed by Sega Enterprises, Ltd." underneath on some Sega CD games (very few games from Digital Pictures were on the Saturn, though).
  • There would sometimes be no line underneath the "Pictures" and it would be bold like the "Digital" part.
  • On Slam City, the globe turns into a basketball and bounces on the ground 3 times before the logo fades out.
  • On the Make My Video series, after a bit "Digital Pictures and the "dp" would disappear as the globe eases in a bit, then "MAKE" comes in from the right in front of the globe and flashes, then it would repeat for "MY" and "VIDEO", then the name of the artist or band, depending which MMV game you're playing (Kris Kross, INXS, Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch, or C+C Music Factory) would zoom out onto the globe, and then after a second zoom in away from the screen before fading out.

Technique: CGI.

Audio: A mixture of radio static, beeping noises and a descending electric guitar noise culminating in a loud "BANG!" noise when the text fades in. The Slam City variant also features a man shouting "SLAM!" The MMY series has a guitar riff on each flash with the last one sustaining itself for the duration of the logo.

Availability: The regular and the no line version can be seen on all versions of FMV games like Sewer Shark, Make My Video, Ground Zero Texas, Double Switch, and the cult classic Night Trap. The "Licensed By" variant can be seen on Corpse Killer and Slam City with Scottie Pippen. You'll find this on just about every FMV game on Sega CD/Mega-CD, 3DO, Windows, and Mac, and even later CD-based systems like the Sega Saturn and the PlayStation (it may be on FMV games on CD-i and Amiga CD-32 as well). Surprisingly, this logo was preserved on the 2017 re-release of Night Trap for PC, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and PlayStation Vita.
