The TMP uniforms definitly loose something when they were on film. I remember thinking that they sucked for years, then I saw a few at some traveling trek exhibit at a museum and seeing them and thinking... "man, if they looked like that on the tape, they would have been much better."
As I said above, the transfer process to videotape badly washed out the colors, so if you saw it on tape, then you weren't seeing the uniforms as they looked on film.
It wasn't just the colors. The little details were lost, and are still not as present on the DVD.
Those uniforms are best viewed in person.
