I suspect the lack of Okuda is because this is a small batch of episodes meant to test the waters of market interest in TNG-R. He'll probably be involved in the full TNG-R project.

Re: The OFFICIAL STNG-R discussion thread!

WOW, a great article/interview with Daryl Baskin, STNG editor!!

http://postfifthpictures.com/2010/02...ek-tng-editor/

5. Is it possible to re master the series in HD?
All the film was vaulted. Including the dailies, with :10 second handles on them. I think Paramount is working on getting all the shows no HD.
More info...from STNG's 4th season onward:

Home for ST:TNG in the fourth season became The Post Group's new Digital Center in Edit Bay B. ST:TNG moved so it could work entirely in the digital format (D1) and abandon the fickle one-inch analog tape format. The reason ST:TNG was analog for three seasons is simple, the technology just did not exit. To bring this point home further, even now some of the equipment in the bay is still considered R & D (Research and Development) and came with no manuals.

The total list of the equipment in the bay is astounding; Abekas A84 (there are only three in the U.S. and the first and third one built are at The Post Group), Abekas a64, two Abekas A60's, two Sony D1 Digital Recorders, CMX 3600 Edit System, DFX Paint FX, ADO 2000 With Digital Interface, ESS-5 Still Store, Quantel Mirage (digital version) and Touchscreen Digital Routing System (The Post Groups' own system). This, of course, does not include the software that is necessary to make all this work. And, it takes all of that hardware and software to bring together all the various elements for ONE effects shot.

Despite what we think today, The Post Group was state of the art. From the AVS forum.

I'm wondering if that should read "I think Paramount is working on getting all the shows to HD".


I have to say this is the most exited I have been about a Star Trek project in a long time. I can't wait to see the first HD episode!

Re: The OFFICIAL STNG-R discussion thread!

Thanks RAMA for that great link and quotes.
For the non-industry folks :
Dailies with 10 frame handles really helps with TNG-R because most likely that means only the 'circled takes' 35mm negatives were saved. A negative cutter cut the negative with these selects. This would lead me to believe notes were kept for take#s used and eye matching cuts gets it down to frame accurate.
So not ALL of the camera negative was just stuck in a vault.

Re: The OFFICIAL STNG-R discussion thread!

Thanks for making this thread, Rama!

I've just finished a brief editorial on the TNG Remastering project over at TrekCore if folks want to take a look: http://tng.trekcore.com/bluray/

It's interesting looking back at the DVD screencaps for the four episodes announced to be on the sampler and seeing the different challenges the remastering team will face.

It might be interesting if they did have all the dallies to add back in deleted scenes and have an extended cut of the episode on Blu-ray. That isn't to say don't but the original aired version on but on.

That would be interesting, but too likely to draw fan ire from certain parts of the fandom. They're better off focusing on improving the episodes as they are.

Re: The OFFICIAL STNG-R discussion thread!

Don't see much of a difference myself, from an extend cut of a TV episode to an extended cut of a film. So long as both are availbale what's the problem.

Re: The OFFICIAL STNG-R discussion thread!

I think it would be a nice bonus if they included some remastered deleted scenes, but I think I'd prefer to see the episodes as they aired.

One nitpick I have is how Encounter At Farpoint is broken up into Part 1 and Part 2. When TNG premiered it was as a two hour episode. I would really like to see the show presented as one long episode rather than as a two-parter. How is it presented on the DVDs?

I don't know, but I figure it would be the two hour episode version on the remastered version.

As far as I recall all home video releases of the pilots and double length episodes were in their original 1 episode presentation. The only exception are episodes that were shown in two parts on their first broadcast. Therefore, I'm confident the blu ray releases will follow the same format.

I'll definitely be buying the initial disk. That quality will inform my decision to buy other seasons. Currently I own 3-6 on DVD.
