Re: Rumor: TNG-HD is a-coming

Opening up the image left and right is no option either. Directors of photography exist for a reason, and shots are composed by framing them properly.

There are some TV DVDs of 4:3 shows around that open up the frame to gain (force, really) a 16:9 image, and what you get is...
  • Most of the time: Empty space left and right. Lots of it. Actors huddling each other center frame.
  • Sometimes: Half faces, noses, ears of actors that are not supposed to be in frame.
  • Every once in a while: Visible production equipment.
Completely unacceptable. Just look at the European releases of Buffy.

TNG in HD has to go OAR, or it's a no go.
