i’m a bit confused as to which version is which but even though the newest ones look incredible, i prefer the more radical ones from a few days ago.
Yes, I think the more aggressive curves adjustment on the first attempt was better in the dark scenes (which comprised most of my comparisons), but I had to dial it down because it was overexposing the exterior shots. As the latest comparison shows however, the two grades are pretty similar colorwise and only need slight brightness adjustments based on the scene to work as well.
I’m not a color gradingologist, so forgive me when what I’m about to say inevitably is stupid, but how believable/good looking would it be if you had separate color grading for light and dark shots/scenes?
I don’t have a degree in gradology
i find that hard to believe. have you seen your star wars technicolor recreation? that’s some phd-level work right there.
