Transporter effects: I thought they looked great. Different people have different priorities, but reflections on the floor (or lack thereof) weren’t a big deal for me.
Agreed. I'm just happy that they've finally brightened the beam up, and removed that dull, overly-pixalated look it had.
Same goes for Q's energy orb and the phaser beams. It was just amazing to me how much cleaner and sharper
every effect was.
Even Q's "flash" effect looked brighter and more realistic.
Speaking of the Q-flash FX, if you look at when Riker is watching the episode on the back of the battle bridge, that uses the SD version, with the bad edit of the Q-flash in it.
