So here’s the second color test. I didn’t try using the 35mm colored photo but instead a photo from the movie as a reference for the ai colorization to see how accurately it could get the colors.
Some things that would need to be either edited with ai or hand fixed would be leias hair color, their lips, and c3pos hand. Maybe I could put it into several different ai colonizers that don’t require a reference image, take that, mask out everything else and stack it onto the original.
Also, the video I sampled was the 60 fps version in lower quality so it’s quite messy in quality. And for the color grading Im currently using a cheap laptop with a screen that changes color/brightness on its level of tilt so my colors probably look more off than what you see.
