making 'computer colour' versions of black and white film
Posted 27 June 2006 - 03:45 PM
I'm not really sure where to post this.
In the 1980s there were many 'computerised colour' versions of classic black and white films e.g. It's a Wondeful Life and Night of the Living Dead.
How exactly were these done? Is it possible to do something similar on a home editing package like Avid?i.e. create 3 identical video tracks of a b+w clip, tint each one with a different colour (r, g + and mix them together?
Even though the colorised versions looked pretty poor I'd like to be able to achieve something similair - any suggestions would be great.

If you tinted the entire frame R, G & B, and mixed them together, what color do you think you would get?
