Re: Season THREE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread
Wait, whats wrong with Sins of the Father? Do we have our first Season 3 complaint on the same level of HTV?
Not at all. This issue goes all the way back to the Next Level sampler disc from January 2012. "Sins of the Father" was scanned at 2K in exactly the same way as every other episode thus far -- that is, at 2048 x 1556, full camera aperture. For whatever reason (probably to avoid rescaling the image), the tighter "action safe" area (which just so happens to correspond to an area that is 1440 x 1080 in size within that 2K scan) was chosen instead of the 5% bigger "TV Transmitted Area" (AKA broadcast safe) for all the non-VFX shots.
CBS *could* have CBS Digital reframe all the affected shots but they chose not to and consider it completed.
