Paulo JanApple Color: recipe for changing from old color science to new one?
by on Jan 9, 2010 at 7:09:26 pm

Hi all:

I have some RED footage shot with a build 21 camera, and now that I need to grade it in Color, I've found out about the color science problem (the current RED plugin for Color doesn't support build 21, and it imports footage shot with it "wrong", with a strong blue hue). Of course, I could transcode all the footage to ProRes 444 and grade from there, but if I really wanted to work with the original RAW files with Color, is there any recipe to correct the build 21 footage and leave it in a "normal" state, before starting with the proper grading? (I.e., to compensate for the errors that the build 21 incompatibility causes).

I've had a quick look at the forums, and it seems to be a hard problem, and I've also tried myself, but little success. It seemed at first like a mere color temperature problem, but I tried taking some build 21 footage and lowering its color temp, and it doesn't look *exactly* like the footage incorrectly imported in Color.

Thanks in advance,
