Any news?

Sadly, no. I lost a lot of material when one of my drives gave out, and I’m just not at all happy with the current reference. Before I assumed just reproducing the colors of a print would yield a desirable outcome, but now I no longer believe that to be the case. These old prints suffer from loads of color inconsistencies and balance problems, while the translation of the print colors from the big screen to the small screen of a scan is a less than perfect process itself, and so regrading the HDTV broadcast requires a lot more work than simply reproducing the print colors. Add to this the fact that I’m about to have my first child, and so I don’t expect much to happen on this front for a while at least.
