Re: Season THREE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

The 2K film scan would have been of the Full Camera Aperture (the entire exposed image -- just like what you see in the S2 gag reel). What this is about is CBS Digital doesn't want to spend the time and money to re-conform the episode from scratch by going back to the originally scanned files/tapes which they most certainly still have.

CBS's conform process is rather complicated (See here). Though you could argue that the hard part has already been done -- the correct shots have all been found.
