Re: Season FIVE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread
Looks good. So it appears that the flyby shot in BOBW II was indeed an alternate take as I originally thought... even though the window light pattern looks strangely different (though it was hard to tell with all that motion blur).
I guess the two primary changes to the CG model were adding detail to the phaser strips and to the hull to bring it more in line with the 4-footer. But no change to the deflector -- not even making the inner blue ring smaller. I wonder if this added detail was done with displacement maps or is it all real geometry that was added? A displacement map would have been far easier, of course.
