Ok guys, here are some comparisons for two scenes of the season 6 episode “Sacrifice of Angels” - I must admit the Defiant, the Galaxy ships and the Miranda ships look gorgeous.

Since it is well known that the later seasons of Star Trek DS9 (and Voyager as well) had better quality when it comes to the production values of those shows and conclusively their DVDs, I wanted to see if my workflow would hold up against the later seasons, so I decided to do two test scenes from the DS9 season 6 episode “Sacrifice of Angels”.
Both scenes focus more on the cgi/vfx elements, but I included a few shots of live action/actors/faces as well.
Please be advised that both scenes had a lot of camera shaking (which is logical, since they’re both battle scenes), so it was hard to find images that were actually “still”.
