When we first learned that Foundation would no longer be doing the CGI for 
B5, you challenged anyone to see if they could tell the difference.  I
have found two:

First, and most importantly, the ship graphics in general seem to be 
quite a bit smoother.  This is a good thing, and I look forward to the 
episodes that really make use of this.  

There is one thing, however, that is not as good.  Planets.  They used to
have much more detail.  Most specifically, the atmosphere would change 
notably.  Now they seem more like just a picture.  The camera shifts 
angles, but the planet itself seems frozen.  Will this eventually go back
to the way it used to be?  

Anyway, I just saw Hour of the Wolf, and will just say, it was EXCELLENT!
The introduction caught me totally off guard, Vorlons are still jerks, and
Sheridan... Oh yeah, I said no spoilers.

The non-moving Centauri Prime shot is an original Foundation shot; the one
where it's moving (with the cruiser fly-bys) is the new one, and there's a
lot more detail now in the surface of the planet and other stuff.
