[In progress] TERMINATOR 2 Blu-ray regrade to 35mm
#1
Hey, guys.

Thanks to whomever released a grindhouse 35mm UHD scan of Terminator 2 recently, I have started to regrade the 2015 US Blu-ray master to look like it with all its original cyan, purple and yellow glory. Hopefully my process will work on the whole film. Here's where I am at for now, about 10 minutes in. While at it, I fix the thin black edges to fill the entire width, some shots more than others, so that it remains the same all the way. It's all temporary of course. I'll have to revisit the contrast among other things:

Awesome.

You certainly have a good eye for colour grades, I'm glad you're giving this one a shot.
Best of luck with this Smile

Looking at the screens, it looks like a push to magenta. You can see this in the POV of the terminator and the fire of the opening credits. Also look at John's face. The color looks greenish.

Might be just me, but it doesn't look right.

No, it's a shot by shot colormatching process using Dr. Dre's tool. John's face looks too green, that's right, but it's under a flashing light at that moment, plus I already revisited this shot. The thing is it's linked to the opening credits without a clear cut, so I had to find a middle ground with the flaming opening credits. But I found out that I could make a cut when the title card closes abruptly to apply a separate LUT. Like I said, what you see here is temporary, just to give you an idea of what it looks like.
