Re: Star Trek: Enterprise seasons Blu-ray spec. features wishlist

I'd love commentaries on each episode (voice ones, not those trivia box ones). More than that, though, I'd love it if they replaced the deleted scenes. Some of them, they'd have to put in the green screen stuff and the ambient noise, but there are some (two of them are in The Expanse) that were obviously cut post-production for time. If they made a "directors' cut" set like that, I'd consider buying the whole series (I already have the DVDs).

Star Trek: Enterprise seasons Blu-ray spec. features

M'Sharak brought up this article
the entire high-def library of Star Trek interviews, behind-the-scenes footage and special material filmed by Toolbox over the past 20 years.
Is Toolbox the company that shot all of the footage use in the Enterprise DVD special features in widescreen [16:9 video] between 2001-2005? It didn't quite look like HD but maybe it was?
I'm also going to say that most of that TNG, DS9, VOY footage would be in standard definition 4:3 from 1987-2001.



I mention it as this project is ongoing but when the Enterprise complete series comes out on Blu-ray will the special features have stuff in HD? Do you guys think Paramount Home video will actually come up with some new HD special features to sell the Blu-ray sets other than some audio commentaries?

Re: Star Trek: Enterprise seasons Blu-ray spec. features wishlist

When it comes to Paramount dvd didvision I read they have laid off people and rumors are they're cutting back on some of the plans for the dvds.I don't know if this will affect the Star Trek dvds. Since dvd sales are down right now.I'd like the Enterprise dvds to be on regular dvds too instead of just Blueray sets only since they're more expensive than the regular dvds.

I understand what you are saying. This is a thread about Enterprise on Blu-ray format and not specifically another release of the Enterprise series on video. This wishlist is for what we would like on the release. 2009 and 2011 may be very different economically for a fiscal year for Paramount and when there is no new Trek content coming after 2009 when the Generations through Nemesis Blu-rays have been released Enterprise is the next natural option.
Star Trek TOS season 3 is really the only planned release for Blu-ray in 2010. Between that and the Star Trek XII feature that isn't even in production yet will be a long time.

Since the 2005 initial release of the 4 seasons of Enterprise I figure Paramount Home Video may put it out on Blu-ray in high definition with the next Star Trek XII feature film release year probably around 2011-2012.

Re: Star Trek: Enterprise seasons Blu-ray spec. features wishlist

A wishlist of extra features I know Bound had extra scenes that were filmed and were cut. I'd like to see what the other deleted scenes from all four seasons could be added if there are any new sets. The interviews that are from the cast at Startrek.com why couldn't they be put on dvd too. Bloopers reels I really enjoyed those on the Enterprise dvds I have now.

ENT Bluray pricing?

Since HBO's original series seasons are priced similar to Trek by Paramont H.E..
HBO just announced season 1 of The Sopranos on Bluray for $69.99
http://www.highdefdigest.com/news/sh...ease_Date/3333
That season is over 10 years old!

i hope ENT will not be that price per season as street price...

As a Paramount release you can count on it being somewhere between $60.00 and $70.00 a season. Which is far better than what I paid for Enterprise on DVD.

Enterprise visual effects season 1 upconverted from standard def.

How do you get hold of Millimeter magazine? Do you have to have a New York background or something like that?
I've answered trevanian's quote from another subforum here
To tell you the truth I was at a studio yesterday in midtown Manhattan and I saw a current issue sitting with other magazines. It was subscribed to the studio tech guy.
You can read current Millimeter articles here:
http://digitalcontentproducer.com/

Scroll down to the bottom and you can read articles from EVERY issue back to 1997. I just did a quick search for the article with that answer:

Tales from the HD Trenches Mar 1, 2002
scroll down to "Colorist in a Hybrid World"

John Carroll, the show’s online editor at Level 3,
“Our visual effects shots are composited in standard definition and upconverted to 24p at CIS [Hollywood],” says Carroll. “Therefore, our visual-effects team has to be very aware of keeping the 3:2 consistent on their master effects reels. Outside material, such as stock footage, can also be difficult to upconvert and may need several passes through a format converter for varying 3:2 sequences from cut to cut. Aspect ratios may need to be changed, often resulting in the cropping or enlarging of part of the picture. It can be very difficult to blend these in with the rest of the material.”
Visual-effects plates are then downconverted to D1 from the 24p dailies or the master, processed, with effects added, and then upconverted back to 24p, removing the 3:2 and inserted into the show.
and in 2005 they did another article on Enterprise visual effects and the tech specs of the pipeline while shooting on HD video:
The basic pipeline for the show's production has been to transfer the original HDCAM tapes to D5 at Level 3, synch them with the separate DAT sound tracks, downconvert them to Beta SP, and offline each episode in standard-def on an Avid Media Composer (version 11.0.6) system (Meridian platform) at the show's editorial offices at Paramount.
“Then, after the cut is approved, we online tape-to-tape — D5 to HDCAM — and do minor color correction at Level 3,” explains Lauritson. “We cut visual effects shots into the master there after Eden Effects and Technicolor are finished with them. Eventually, we deliver a D5 HD master and a D2 standard-def digital master to UPN.”
Ron Moore, the show's co-visual effects supervisor (along with Art Codron), points out that the show's effects template has been gravitating toward an HD workflow since Enterprise debuted in 2001, long before this season's switch to HD acquisition. That was, in fact, a big reason Curry, Moore, and Codron located the pipeline at major HD-capable facilities in close proximity to each other — Eden Effects, Hollywood, where all CG is created, and across the street at Technicolor Creative Services (formerly Complete Post), Hollywood, where all compositing is performed.
Moore adds that this HD effects pipeline still periodically renders out standard-def elements and then up-rezzes them if a render-intensive shot would threaten the schedule. But, he adds, the need to turn to SD elements became less frequent as the season wore on.
“We get matte shots coming over, and those things can take huge amounts of time to render. Our schedule doesn't always allow for it, but on the other hand, if you don't do it, you can end up with aliasing and various artifacts. Our tests showed us the difference between shots rendered out in HD and those rendered in SD and up-rezzed. So that is one reason we took the show to [Technicolor] — to be in a facility fully equipped to do HD 100 percent of the time. I always ask for HD stuff, and if we run into a render problem, we evaluate it at that time and do what we have to do to make it work in our timeframe.”
Breaking the Comfort Zone
Mar 1, 2005




let me repeat

Moore adds that this HD effects pipeline still periodically renders out standard-def elements and then up-rezzes them if a render-intensive shot would threaten the schedule.
That is season 4 (2004-2005)!

So guys and gals who want to nitpick the HD picture when the Blu-ray comes out in a couple years it will be the matte shots that will most likely show up as low resolution.

Re: Star Trek: Enterprise seasons Blu-ray spec. features wishlist

As far as additional commentaries I'd love to hear from some of the ENT actors as well as director of photography, visual effects supervisor, writers, production designer, music composer, episode director, producer

On Broken Bow alone they could have 2 more commentaries.
I'd love for them to have commentaries on all the best ENT episodes since this would probably be the last official CBS release of ENT on home video.

Maybe they could get some more stuff from Entertainment Tonight who is also under the CBS Corp./Viacom umbrella from 2001-2005 with set visits and Interviews of the cast during that period.
I'd love to see all the official EPKs (Electronic Press Kits) put out by Paramount TV at the time the show was in production from each season.

Possibly some stuff from the Star Trek conventions during the 2001-2005 period where the ENT cast spoke and see some fans in ENT fan-costumes would be good to see on the Blu-ray.

I think most of us would like to see any screen tests they did with the cast before Broken Bow was even in production in 2001.

If any of the episodes had any additional deleted scenes that were not on the DVDs...

If this happens, I would like them to at least keep the cast interviews, the deleted scenes and bloopers (or outtakes, whatever their called).

Since all the special features on the DVDs were in standard definition I would want all the stuff from the DVDs of each season + new material since the standard definition videos don't take up nearly as much room as high definition video special features...

Re: Star Trek: Enterprise seasons Blu-ray spec. features wishlist

A note from the Star Trek bluray, perhaps a feature on the Starships seen throughout the series (Earth, Vulcan, Andorian, Etc...), and what went into them in designing the shapes, sizes, colors, etc.. and 'themes' each species has to why their ships look a certain way, the color(s), the hull pattern (or lack thereof) and so forth.

Perhaps in indepth (or something along those lines) interview by the intended staff of (the would be) season 5 and the storyline plans proposed.

Re: Star Trek: Enterprise seasons Blu-ray

now that they've completed the [TOS] series' release in HD, one wonders what's next for the franchise on the format. Given the appearance of one of its episodes on the Season 2 set, Star Trek: The Animated Series seems a possible Blu-ray release for 2010, though Star Trek: Enterprise is far more likely
from Star Trek: The Original Series -Season 3 review
http://www.thedigitalbits.com/review...ws120109a.html

Speculation but from someone who knows how the home video market works.

I'd quite like the syndication trailers from 2005/6, when TPTB put together a 26 episode package to sell other networks - composing of Broken Bow, Regeneration, all of Season 4 and Carbon Creek.
When you say "TPTB" (The Powers That Be), who are you referring to? Was this something official that Berman did to try to get Enterprise onto another network?

With CBS.com putting ENT in 1080p HD online that is a good sign as they did the same thing with TOS-R episodes before the Blu-ray release.

I'd like to see as new special features on the Blu-rays a bunch of 2001 archival interviews and Entertainment Tonight set visits and behind-the-scenes footage.
