I will be working on a spot, the shoot is greenscreen with tracking markers, actors will be placed into a CG environment, the shots will ultimately be edited and output SD, but I have an issue. I have done this before, but the workflow was less than desireable.
35mm to digibeta to digital files
key green add background
35mm color correct
35mm CC'd footage back into key and re-comped
background CC'd to best match color corrected talent

This was the workflow the last 2 times I had this project, but I was wondering if you guys maybe have a better route, when should the color correct happen? I don't like having to redo the key and readjust for a shifted plate when the color corrected shots come back. Can I just output the comp using the best light footage and then color correct the combined talent and cg background?
What has worked or not worked for you?
