@poita: Actually that's pretty much how the scene should look. Like I said before I've been through these settings about 30 times or maybe even more, back when I did the color correction and in the end I've gotten very sure I got the best result I possibly could.
Even though it looks green at first glance, it's actually how it should look when all colors are brought back the way we did. Considering the downsides of the GOUT of course.
Just check the scan of that scene on jedi1: http://www.jedi1.net/images/1600/ANH-Galactic_Empire-02144-1600.jpg
Even Vader has a green tone there.
I appreciate that everybody is trying to help but it's way too late for that, and I'm very confident that the color correction got the best possible result so I'm not even considering going back to that point again. I hope everybody understands this.
I didn't realise it wasn't a scene by scene process, and I fully understand you not wanting to revisit the colour any more after putting so much work in and getting a far better result than the original GOUT. I think it looks fantastic in comparison.
I have no doubt that the scans are a bit green tinged either, it is a common problem with scanners and with aging film and film duplication.
I just wanted to share that I have looked at that actual scene from a variety of original film sources, rather than scans, and it shouldn't be quite as green as it is in the scans. I am only talking a few per cent and it would only be achieved by doing a full primary and secondary colour correction, which isn't the goal of this project anyway. I have also seen the original costumes quite a few times, and spent an awful, awful amount of my life colour correcting, so I know your pain!
I'm looking forward to this release more than any other, so I hope you don't mind us all nitpicking and over-analysing, or misinterpret it as disappointment in any way.I enjoy the discussion and the feedback for my own projects as well.
