UHD BD to BD?
I could be wrong, but I seem to be finding that these new 4K UHD masters are quite consistently screwed up in the same kind of way when they're converted to 1080p for Blu-rays.

I think I commented a while back that I found the 1080p disc in the 4K HELLBOY set to look very violet/purple and that this ruined a lot of the big bold primary reds that should be on Hellboy himself and so on. I also saw from posts earlier in the thread that SPIDER-MAN was turned from bold primary red to a kind of weird magenta/violet as well. Now I'm looking at THE DARK CRYSTAL and it's the same crap all over again. Look at these two screenshots in particular:

For comparison, here's Spider-man from earlier in this thread:

What the hell's going on at the moment? Did somebody just come up with default settings that are very obviously crap, but they're being used for everything?

More examples, though somewhat less egregious ones, from the 2018 UHD-mastered restoration of EVIL DEAD II. This is less of a full-on violet "tint" sort of push, but the white balance is still noticeably thrown off from time to time (not necessarily the whole way through) in the same way that it is on all the other ones I've mentioned and the ones that were already in this thread before I noticed it myself.

I'm wondering, can it be done to match a UHD luma with another chroma?

Assuming both use the same scan. For example, we have the old Der Rabe U matic regrade of The Good, The Bad & The Ugly. It uses the same scan as the forthcoming 4K disc from Kino.

Can the UHD luma be extracted, and the chroma from the regrade layed out on top of it?

As here the UHD won't use any HDR.
