But when it happened Doctor Who fans everywhere felt like someone had just walked over their graves.
Those were done by rotoscope.
But the DVDs still go to cropped, low-resolution video whenever someone fires one. So rotoscope or CGI, it still seems they were composited in 4:3.
The worst thing about this is it can actually spoil some surprises. You know someone is about to fire a gun a few seconds before they do because the video goes all grainy!
Everyone's forgetting that 1 CGI file still exists and that's for the Star Fury model and it was used in the Lost Tales movie.
But with the CGI, whether it was rendered in PAL or NTSC originally, for the DVD's (and the 1080i Broadcast masters) Warner Brothers cropped the footage from NTSC master tapes. So the DVD's, whether NTSC, PAL or SECAM are derived from NTSC sources.
But if Warner Brothers ever remasters the series, it'll be interesting too see if the redid Crusade at the same time and just included it as B5 Season 6. The Crusade DVD's are presented in their 4:3 versions.
Did those rats also happen to be angry DS9 fans?
