Forgot to post here, too, but I found that few problematic shots were not that close to the DVD; a second pass (regrade the regraded, with a different filter) solved the problem; even if the majority of the scenes were almost perfect, I decided to re-encode the whole film, instead of replacing just those shots; at the end, result is way better for those shots, and a bit closer for the others; I’m pretty sure it’s impossible to do better, unless one would regrade (or correct the automatic regrade) the whole movie scene by scene, shot by shot… and it will NOT happen! 😄
Here you are some examples from those shots: from top to bottom, DVD, new regrade, old regrade, BD
The grass… in this shot, the almost burnt-by-the-sun grass color is not rendered well; still, the new regrade is a bit closer; house, sky, sea, trees colors are good, though.
With this, the new grading is way better than the old one; face color is right now, and the wall is green and much closer to the DVD.
Even if it seems minor here, the difference is noticeable; faces are more blue and Anderton’s skirt is more teal (hence similar to DVD) than blue.
“Only” ten hours left for the latest regrade lossless encoding!
