... is how the actual "live-action" shots will look like:
The film will feature three kinds of "live-action" takes:
- Takes from onboard the Enterprise (reuse from TNG season 5, 6 and 7)
- Real live-action (shooting next summer if everything works out as planned) with actors for the characters which were seen in the game exclusively)
- Awayteam missions (composing both above with newly created CGI enviroments - the most challanging and tiring of the three)
Today, let's start with the first point:
Scenes on the ship are very easy to make. You just have to spot every TNG episode for let's say bridge scenes, cut them down to takes and voila... here we go:
This shot has been taken from the series finale "All Good Things":
In order to alienate it, so that later you won't be able to recognize it that easily, that shot (like all of them) is recolored slightly. I am also using a program to upscale the image, add contrast and sharpen it.
Since the movie will be presented in 16:9 Widescreen, the frame has to be cut slightly to fit.
And voila: The finished actual A FINAL UNITY picture in its original DVD resolution:
