Re: Rumor: TNG-HD is a-coming
21 pages of circular bitching.
My 2 cents are that if they need to remake the effects to try to make them look similar to what the original artists intended. These people are still alive and ready to be consulted. Tell me it wouldn't be awesome if they got together again to work some of their original plans into the cost conscious shots of old. How about a Ambassador class that looks like originally intended instead of the one Greg Jein had to build in a weekend? The loss of the 4 foot D wouldn't be too awful either!
On the other hand if they can somehow reuse the old FX, that's cool too. Appreciate the unreal amount of work the model makers and filmers put in on a crazy schedule and very limited budget, huh? It's history and they should be proud of making the best looking sci-fi TV show of the time.
16:9 or 4:3 doesn't matter to me as long as it's done competently.
I think I mentioned some of this 20 pages ago.
I still feel the example of the actual
aired HD version of STNG from TATV is all you need to make a decision on if the 16:9 format is for you...it seems to work.
