Is it just me, or did they tone down the transporter effect from Farpoint? I was REALLY liking the new, brighter effect they created for that episode, but in later ones it looks like they dimmed it much more to match the original effect.

The highlights in the effect do look dimmer on the "Code of Honor" screencap, but that could be due to the exact frame that was captured (it's a dissolving effect). Also, in the "Farpoint" shot, the actors are being lit from above and below by the practical transporter lights, so it makes the effect look brighter overall.
