Thanks RAMA for that great link and quotes.
For the non-industry folks :
Dailies with 10 frame handles really helps with TNG-R because most likely that means only the 'circled takes' 35mm negatives were saved.
I made a mistake
All the film was vaulted. Including the dailies, with :10 second handles on them.
-from the article.
Actually 10 second handles for every take kept are better as that would technically allow for a longer edit of scenes but i doubt it would happen as music cues wouldnt match, pacing would be off.
The episodes were longer back then. Today's episodes are about 44 minutes. when TNG-R goes into syndication that is minutes of advertising time that networks want so i wouldnt be surprised if the syndication episodes were shorter than the blu-ray episodes.
