I think this is one of those unfortunate situations where the last look (especially NaT) was so accomplished whatever followed it was bound to be slightly underwhelming.
The new look is very polished and, given time, will prove to be a step in the right direction; had it arrived before the February changes I'd hazard a guess that it would have been even better received.
The whole thing seemed like it was out of a film. Infact if anyone as seen the film V for Vendetta it reminds me of the fake News Service that features in it.
As for the opening, the idea is good, however the animation camera work seems a bit violent and I think the panels would be better used with clips/images from todays news instead of generic images.
I do like the transition from Titles to Studio however the studio I think looks too fake, ITV News love their virtual sets but I think it would be nice to see more real sets. Channel 4 seem to be able to do it under ITN so why can't ITV News.
I suppose we cant draw to a final conclusion until at least the end of today after the different programs including News at Ten, and also its only the first day. Maybe like GMTV as the days and weeks go on changes will be made.
