    Re: TNG "Q Who" Remastered

    Sub-par CG that replaces perfectly good models and a weird, gauzy color filter... aye, that's what the fans were clamoring for!

    Re: TNG "Q Who" Remastered

    Yeah, I agree it is not the best.

    However, the fellow who did it, put the whole thing together in less than a week! That is pretty impressive, I think...

    I think he is just trying to show that it is possible to create a REMASTERED VERSION of TNG. Thus far, Paramount has stated creating a REMASTERED edition of TNG would be very difficult because of the type of film the series was shot on. So if just one guy can do this on his home system in just under 7 days, it puts forth the arguement Paramount should be able to do it too.

    Whether or not, TNG should actually be remastered at all, is a whole another can of worms all together.

    Me, I absolutely love my TOS REMASTERED set. It is faithful to the original spirit of the series while creating a slightly larger, more detailed canvas of the Trekverse!

    Re: TNG "Q Who" Remastered

    Personally I can't stand the remastering of either star wars or star trek - basically because the new effects work does not fit in with the rest of the film/episode. TOS looks out of place - although to their credit, they did make the new effects look "dated" - but it's still too advanced compared to the wobbly sets and the ridiculous rubber heads. Part of the charm of these period pieces is that they were period pieces - new FX just makes the old FX look even more ridiculous.

    All he did was replace the effects shots with sub-par CG. That's not remastering. For Paramount, er...CBS to remaster TNG, they need to go back to the original film elements and re-edit everything (and re-composite all effects shots) from scratch. Not a small undertaking, by anyone's standards.


    That's not to say I don't hope they do it.

    Re: TNG "Q Who" Remastered

    ^ Indeed. TOS was edited and given effects on film, whereas TNG was treated on video, so it's a bit of an open question as to whether the TNG film still exists for a proper remastering.

    And, in defense of the TOS remastering, the blu-rays allow for watching the original, CG-free versions via seamless branching.

    I agree with Gaith. (This is happening far too often recently, Gaith. Are you sure you are not doing something wrong? )

    Personally, while I am a great admirer of "period" special effects, I love the new effects for the original series. They have been done to fit the series, do not stand out like the Star Wars CGI and I have the option to view both, which allows me to choose depending on my mood. Unfortunately, it does seem doubtful that we shall ever see TNG and DS9 in high quality.

    I have read several times (hardly proof, I know) that the film elements are indeed still stored and catalogued properly. Not just the live action footage, but the effects elements as well. (Not the ones done purely on video or CG, naturally, but apparently all the model work is preserved.)

    I want to believe.
