Re: The OFFICIAL STNG Next Level Bluray watch and review thread
Could the framing issue be due to damage of the original negative for that episode? Maybe the edges had damage that was too expensive to restore, so a decision was made to crop instead?
It's certainly possible, but there's a few things I can think of which make that rather unlikely:
- The TV Transmitted Area they're supposed to be using is already set back pretty far from the edges of the negative.
- Every time a live-action VFX shot is shown, they consistently go back to the larger DVD equivalent area; no problem there.
- They probably wouldn't have chosen the episode for the sampler in the first place if they noticed it had significant damage.
