Re: The OFFICIAL STNG-R general discussion thread!

My first impression is that it still looks very soft. The effect shots have a lot more detail but the live action stuff still doesn't look that sharp to me. I do prefer the colour timing of the HD version.

Having said that, I suspect that softness is a result of the low resolution of the video on EW website, instead of a problem with the remastering.

Yeah, that video isn't HD for sure and still looks pretty sharp for its res.

I want to see uncompressed screencaps from the blu-ray, not long to wait though now, 7-14 days off from getting some actual uncompressed HD samples.

The colors are so much brighter in the new version. I wonder if that will lay to rest some complaints that TNG wasn't as visually interesting as its predecessor? It's certainly tempered my opinion of the series' photography.

The starbase creature actually looks worse. You can see that it's basically a plate with frayed strings glued to it.
The 'improved' shot where it comes out of the ground looks amazing- all the underside detail! Who knew?

Well, it appears that the HD giveth and the HD taketh away.

I'm beginning to be mildly curious in these just to see how the rest of the model and effects work holds up. That's the first stirrings of interest I've had in anything TNG-related in about 15 years, so there's a win for CBS.

HD certainly exposes things that were meant to be invisible on the TV screen such as the make up covering the joins in Spock's ears.

I was thinking the same thing. The farpoint aliens really do look like ropes stuck on some plates now. I think while this is an example where HD may give away some of the cheap FX shots, everything I've seen of the ship looks fantastic. TBH, most of the early stuff was pretty out there in terms of design. The Farpoint aliens are definately an example of this, Nagellum is another. The dustbuster phasers are certainly a WTF decision.

While the first two series may have been more out there when it came to the art, the budget and technology of the day really hurts them when it comes to HD, imo.

I really don't think it will be until the 3rd season where the show will really shine in HD. As everyone knows, that's really where they got their shit together when it came to the visual style of the show. The two piece uniforms, Cobra head phasers and Riker's beard really helped sell the illusion of the 24th century and add some detail to the world

Well then don't buy seasons 1 and 2 if they hurt your eyes.

It will be hard to resist buying each season at it comes out, knowing that a series box set will follow.

Didn't say they did, just pointing out a fact that seasons 1 and 2 are overall a cheaper, uglier affair.
