I haven't had a chance to sit down and watch my copy of ANH untill today. It's all fine untill I get to the scene after the gang escapes the Death Star. Han and Luke in the turrets, you know. Then I notice this red.. box that follow the first Tie Fighter. And the second. And the third one has a green box around it. How did they miss this????? Or is my copy just defective? Anyone else notice this?

I had mentioned this in one of the earlier forums...that visible matte lines are visible on my copy during the TIE attack, more grey to brown on my TV. It might be the way people have their color set.

Also, has anyone noticed the gun flash frames during the Tantive IV assault. They appear almost pinkish-red now, and more prominent. I don't recall this from the VHS or laser copes?

Do you notice this on the DVD or older VHS versions? I know my VHS tapes show the matte outline quite visibly around the Tie Fighters. The appear to me to be a faint red but are quite noticeable (especially once you pick it out, you can't stop seeing them).

I haven't gone through that scene closely on the DVD to see if they are visible and if so, how visible they are. That was something that always bugged me and wished it would be fixed.

I noticed this on the DVD, and I don't have a vcr handy that still works so I can't check it. But it struck out at me because I never remembered seeing it like that. I watched it on a smaller tv in my room, I will try it on the big tv later to see if it is just the smaller one.

I just see the matte boxes around the TIEs, which seem more prominent than they did on VHS.

I guess it was either my ps2 or my tv, because it looked fine on the big tv. Oh well.
