Within the limits of Grading on DigiBeta?
Posted 28 March 2007 - 04:37 PM
Anyway there are a few shots were the light is clipping badly, and the clipped light is bleeding onto window frames and the actor. I have DigiBeta master, but i'm not sure if these problems can be fixed within the realms of DigiBeta and I need to know whether I need to arange a rescan.
Let me know what you think,

But the whites are obviously gone and there's nothing you can do about it. I don't know, obviously, how much was actually supposed to be there. It'll look rather odd, I think, whatever you do.

Yeah - I'd definately go for the re-scan... The first shot I don't mind the clipping as the burn out looks right with the backlight and could probably be tweaked into something nice... but for the other shots I'd go back to the neg and start over...
I think you guys have helped make up my mind. I'm going to arange a rescan, nothing can be done when the detail of a window frame or a face is missing.

because the blowing out of the areas around the doorframe area looks too inclined for neg, even for direct sunlight... unless it was the choice of the colorist.
for footage with so much context/creative-sensitive overexposed area, i would maybe opt for a flat transfer and handle the color grade in post if you can't afford a nice sit-in session. hope this helps.
