What? Fanthom events and STID have nothing to do with each other. The Fanthom thing is one day special events and would be arranged by CBS not Paramount.
Right, I know they're separate. This is just my speculation, but I wonder if Paramount is concerned that having two Star Treks in theaters on the same night might take away from whatever box office STID would do (even if its one night during the week). And since it sounds like there's friction between CBS and Paramount, CBS may have decided to stay out of the way and do the next Fathom screening in the fall for season 5 when STID will have closed. Since the profits from Fathom are going to charity, its not like they're losing money.

But having a Fathom screening while STID is playing puts Trek back in competition with itself (even though its just one night) which everyone probably wants to avoid. I'm sure Abrams would not be pleased if old Star Trek episodes are screened in the theater next to his new movie.

I hope I'm wrong though, I'd love to see an event for season 4!
Ok, im lost. What friction are you referring to?
There was a rather hyped up article that said Paramount asked CBS to not sell anything TOS related at all for a period of time around the release of STID, which CBS was unwilling to do, so there is this notion that the former cousins (CBS and Paramount both used to be under the Viacom umbrella) are no longer get along.

Re: Season FOUR OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

Our Friends at Trekcore have posted some new screenshots from Season 4. I'm actually liking Modern Video's work here, even though when they get to the screenshots of Redemption, you just know it's CBS-D doing the work. Looking forward to adding this set in late July.

Agreed, Modern Video looks like they're doing a fine job (of course CBS-D's work is a class unto itself), so glad they found a new VFX house to work with!

I've got to say that I'm not that impressed right now. There seems to be more color saturation on some shots but they don't really feel 'HD'.

Re: Season FOUR OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

And I see a lot of color noise apart from that (Guinan pic).
I just hope these are all VERY BAD screenshots that have nothing to do with the actual S4 set.
To be quite honest, I can't see ANY of the HD sharpness I'm used to on most of these comparison HD shots. They all look just a little better than upscales to me. Oh dear...

That particular still has a noticeable amount of motion blur, which is inherent to the source, so the ship looks a bit soft at that particular moment -- but you can see resolved grain on top of that blur. And as TrekCore notes, the shot has always looked rather poor. I'm not sure what could have made it look substantially better.

I couldn't disagree more. They look nothing like SD upscales. The live action looks just as good as Season Three. It's the same film and DP after all. And I don't see color noise, I see colored grain, especially blue specks, which are a characteristic of Kodak 5296. It has fine tabular grains in all but the fast yellow layer (which tend to be dark blue colors and shadows). This is just what that o-neg looks like when scanned with modern equipment.

One thing I noticed when looking at this still is that the level of detail and realism on the 4-footer isn't as good as the 6-footer. Especially when you compare it to this shot.

Ok, if you say so. It's just that none of those comp. shots blow me away like they used to before. Maybe will have to see that in motion.

Re: Season FOUR OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

Totally agree with Maxwell Everett. The live action material is just as good as Season Three... the "color noise", as Maxwell points out, is GRAIN... and if you watch the 1080p video you'll see it adds realism to the scene rather than detracting from it.

"The Loss" shot - as I pointed out - is the weakest in the trailer, but then the source material is pretty shoddy too.

And for those asking - there will be no theatrical event for Season Four. Sorry, folks.

Most of these are huge improvements, except for the one Ent-D shot that was apparently flawed from the start.
