STNG remastered and in 3D?? CBS weighs in on this!

http://www.trekbbs.com/showthread.php?t=120132

From the future board.

While I think 3D is unnecessary, if it gets the work done for remastering STNG, I'm all for it.

Since I'm not going to get a 3D set anytime soon, no hurry.

Now Hoshi dropping out of the air duct, topless and in 3D, that's a different story.

Total waste. The effects aren't that dated at all.

I'm no fan of 3D, but if it'll help convince them to remaster TNG from scratch, I'm all for it.

The effects of early TNG weren't bad per se, but they are let down by terribly lo-res video compositing.

Tosk nails it on the head. Most of the FX were very good, they just don't work well with new HD formats.

We're currently rewatching the series on DVD, and there's a lot of FX shots that have the potential to look good, but as noted the lo-res video compositing is what has done them a disservice. If they occasionally look a bit dodgy on DVD then the HD formats will definitely show any problems even worse.

Re: STNG remastered and in 3D?? CBS weighs in on this!

Do we really watch for the special effects? I can't imagine how 3D would make an episode like "The Inner Light" any better.

I'd rather see them take the money and use it to tell some new stories, in whatever medium and in whichever timeline/universe they want to.

Only for the special effects? No. But they are part of the equation...and just as important as any of the other parts.

Is it wrong to want all aspects of the show to be equally good?

I agree...It annoyed me when I watched it BEFORE HD...you could sometimes see the low res lines through certain spaceships, and other fx. Has nothing to do with creativity..just tech.

:faceplam:

Look, the 3D in Avatar was awesome but it was filmed in 3D there's no way they can convert TNG into 3D and make it look good on the budget they're going to have for a 20-year-old TV series getting a DVD-only release.

I'd much rather them invest in re-editing/cutting the episodes and redoing the SFX for a high-quality BD disc release.

It will have to happen eventually.

As repeated repeatedly on this thread and others, TNG's special effects in space were done on video... and even at DVD quality look dodgy. On Blu-ray they would be certainly ratty and dogeared.

It's just an age/quality thing. The battle scenes from DS9's Way of the Warrior however look fantastic, and unbelievably they were done with actual models and not CG.
