Another prob on occasion (and I remember this with guest ships, like the vessel in THE WOUNDED) is when they'd either speed up a shot in post or record it at 30fps instead of 24 (I think that was a Dan Curry thing, never Legato.) The vessel takes on that Telenovela look that screamed (and to me still screams) 'video/cg' ... in essence it is taking a decent model shot and making it look like a cartoon
The 30fps thing always bugged me too, and it really fooled me into thinking that those shots were done on video for a long time. Makes me glad that the remastering team have been converting those Dan Curry shots into 24fps so that they at least don't stick out like a sore thumb. Did Dan Curry ever explain why he preferred shooting his stuff on 30fps?
