Re: DS9 on blu-ray -- What can we do?

They used primitive CGI to fix the seams on Odo's makeup in Season One, cover up microphones extending into the image and reflections of studio equipment on the display screens.

Back in those days of standard definition resolution (regardless whether NTSC or PAL) they could get away with it (you wouldn't / didn't notice) but in remastered HD the original camera footage would reveal those flaws, therefore these need to be fixed again with state-of-the-art CGI.

I really don't know how big this problem is, hopefully they didn't get too sloppy knowing "We can fix this with CGI in post-production."
