Re: Season FOUR OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

It's been said that it depends on the VFX team doing the episode Curry or Legato. Dan Curry liked 30 fps so every other episode has it's VFX done that way. It was kind of odd, but one had a distinct preference for doing at video speed rather than film speed. Which could help explain "Identity Crisis".
Yes, the two main VFX supervizors on the show were Dan Curry and Rob Legato. Rob Legato liked to shoot at 24 frames per second and Dan Curry liked to shoot at 30 frames per second. So basically, every other episode, one is 24 one is 30 – for the visual effects. So, yes, we had to – on all the episodes that were shot at 30 by Dan Curry – we had to put a 125% speed up on each of those elements so that they matched the original. We’re using Autodesk Smokeand Flame to do those speedups. For the most part, they are indistinguishable from the original. If and when there are artefacts from the speed-up process, we take them out and clean them up if they are noticeable.
