IIRC, David Fein mentioned that the digital assets were built specifically for hi-def theatrical showings, since that's what the endgame of the Director's Edition was. It was a Paramount Home Video directive to do the lower-res renders for DVD with the nebulous assurance at the time that "someday" they'd be used to create a new theatrical print.It honestly may be cheaper to start from scratch than to try to re-render standard definition designs from 20 years ago that a) didn’t match the film 20 years ago and b) surely would not hold up in 4K.
I’m going to say this fall or December.You don’t know that. Why are you opposed to trying? Ha, ha, quoting Decker. Just kidding you.
We know Daren Dochterman was the effects guy in charge at the time and he’s still around and highly motivated for the HD remaster. So I’m sure he’s well aware of the CGI assets state and if they are up to the standards of today. I trust he’ll do what they need, start over or use what they have, when they get the call to go ahead with the project.
I’ve still got the greatest enthusiasm and confidence in the prospect of a remastered Star Trek The Motion Picture DE and theatrical cut.
I'm holding out hope that it's the DE but I have a feeling it's going to be the theatrical cut being restored.THEY ARE REMIXING STAR TREK THE MOTION PICTURE IN ATMOS!!!
The remaster must be coming!!

The first DVD release of TMP was in 2001 and that was of the Director's Edition.Yes the theatrical cut of Star Trek the motion picture was released on DVD in 2013 for sure. Not sure if there were earlier releases of the theatrical version on DVD
Not totally. You can still see bits of scaffolding, etc. that weren't meant to be seen, but I will agree it's less-obvious in the 4:3 version.When that scene was inserted into the "Special Longer Version" for television exhibition, the 4x3 crop obscures the fact that the set is visible in the original shot.
Nope, not even close. There's about 2 minutes of test footage, but it most certainly is not everything that was filmed.Doesn’t the dvd extras have what was filmed for the memory wall scene?
Bruce was scoring mixer on virtually every Jerry Goldsmith score starting around 1982 up until Looney Tunes: Back In Action, Goldsmith's final score. He's also worked with composers like John Williams, David Newman, James Newton Howard and Arthur B. Rubinstein.But given his works with The Doors and The Beach Boys and other bands, I had the impression his work is mainly as an audio engineer for rock music. And he’s worked on soundtracks with Jerry Goldsmith.
