Our article on Tuesday going behind-the-scenes of TNG’s visual effects from the episode “The Child” met with a good response, so we’re continuing the series with an analysis of another episode. Last month, we brought you an exclusive look at an early workprint copy of Season 4’s “The Wounded“, with additional scenes, missing music, and several unfinished visual effects shots. Today, we’re digging into those missing visual effects with an exclusive before-and-after video comparison, along with a scene-by-scene breakdown of the technical processes used to complete each scene!
We have used two versions of “The Wounded” in this presentation: a production-era workprint VHS tape dated November 26, 1990, and final version of the episode from the 2002 DVD release.
Stay tuned to TrekCore as we have several more workprint analyses to come, including a special look at the use of widescreen photography on The Next Generation! What do you think about the use of visual effects in “The Wounded”? Let us know in the comments below!
