Re: How Far Should TOS-R Have Gone?

Honestly TOS-R needed a knowledgeable VFX director on it,—someone with a background or understanding of how optical effects work on FILM—in order to make the effects fit seamlessly into the show. The big problem with the TOS-R effects, beyond the dumb boo boos (e.g. the orange "blue flame" and the Enterprise actually vanishing behind the limb of a planet...which would make said planet about 10 miles across) and crappy models (hel-lo low poly Klingon ship) is that the effects don't feel like they belong next to the footage that surrounds them in terms of LOD (level of detail), grain and lighting style.
I wholehearted agree.
