A month ago, I color corrected a Super 16mm film for Jeff Hogan Films called “Wings of Thunder” for the Bear River Wildlife Refuge in Utah. It was very cool to be working on a film project again. The source tapes were HDCAM SR 422, which made the color correction much easier. It took quite awhile to figure out the deck though! I used an After Effects plug-in from Red Giant called Film Fix on a few of the shots where the image wasn’t as clean as it could be. I usually use this plug-in as part of my Super 8 transfer system for older damaged film. The shots turned out amazingly well. Here’s an example on Super 8 from another project. I’m disappointed to hear that Red Giant has discontinued this plug-in with no replacement on the horizon. The plug-in only works on older computers with older versions of After Effects. I had to use my Mirror Drive Door G4 with After Effects 6.5 for the fixes and using Uncompressed 10bit HD footage takes a painfully long time. I’m looking at maybe using Parallels on a Mac Pro with an XP version of After Effects 7 to see if I can get a bit more speed out of it.
