Wal-Mart will price match the Target deal, including the additional $10 off. It is where I got the combo last time.

Except for the cloning tool duplication, but I doubt that will stand out when watching the episode.

In regard to what? The matte painting or the CG space creature?

If you're referring to the matte painting, it was done by hand by the classic style matte painting master Syd Dutton in his shop called Illusion Arts (Syd learned from a real old school matte painting master and TOS matte painter Albert Whitlock). So that's only an apt term if you're referring to the digitally rendered space creature

The vineyard. It has been touched up digitally in several spots (visible due to the tweaked elements being sharper than the rest of the painting) and there are repeating patterns in the leftmost row in this cropped pic:



The four "dots" up top, and the foot-track itself is duped lower down. Like I say, I'm betting it looks fine in the ep itself, what with movement and all.

TrekCore's review is up: http://trekcore.com/blog/2013/07/rev...son-4-blu-ray/

I think this screencap is screaming for a widescreen extension for a desktop wallpaper! http://tng.trekcore.com/bluray/image...st-planets.jpg

Awesome, thanks! I figured it would be rather simple given the framing, I'm just terrible at photoshopping :-P

I'm inclined to agree with TrekCore that the digital recreation of Junior's birth in Galaxy's Child doesn't look very good.

It also has a small, telltale compositing error. Notice the sharp, one pixel wide matte line around the mother creature in the lower left quadrant of the shot? That's because the compositor used the animation's alpha channel as a holdout matte, which pulled in a bit of gray around the edge. The compositor could've possibly fixed this by "choking in" on the matte just a tad.

If this animation was done in Maya, I believe there's a "composite" checkbox in the render options that would've eliminated the problem in the first place. It's a little odd that something this basic got overlooked... but I suppose either they were rushed or CG animation isn't Modern VideoFilm's forte -- though they claim they do 3D visual effects on their site:
