Can Apple TV see movies on a Time Capsule without my computer on?
Will the Apple TV be able to see and play files on the TC directly? I don't mind storing my iTunes library on there. Simply, I have more movies than will fit on the Apple TV (syncing). The streaming works well, but my computer has to be awake/on.

No. The software built into the AppleTV doesn't read remote HDDs it can only speak to remote iTunes. The Time Capsule is remote file sharing, not a remote media server.

Once the iTunes libary is on the time capsule, your apple tv should be able to stream content from it wirelessly.
