Can u tell the different aspects that can affect the quality of the image i.e Sharpness , Saturation etc ... I know that bad lenses , Old Stock , Over-Exposure etc r some aspects that can reduce the quality !!
I'm working for a entire different look for a project ... Its jus that i lack the experience !!!

When you use a tape measure, you know exactly down to the inch or less where your focus point is, film / clip tests will tell what condition the film is in and if the camera is working properly, the Kodak or Fugi sites will give you a description of the film's properties INCLUDING the saturation qualities, dailies tell you if the camera operator and focus puller is hittng their focus marks or if the shots are soft. You should be able to collaborate with the film sales people, the lab and your DOP to get the kind of saturation levels you're looking for and make sure they're right when you print the film and project it.
BTW, JUST IN CASE you were miss informed of made a mistake, there is no ground glass on a projector only on a camera. The ground glass is actually a tiny rear projector screen the gets the image coming through the lens hitting a spinning mirror / shutter assembly that reflects the light though a series of mirrors or mirrored prisms in the viewfinder assembly until it hits the back of the ground glass. The aspect ratio box markings are etched onto the ground glass. The de-anamorphic viewfinder shrinks and de-squeezes the image (so the image will fit into the finder's field of view) so you can see how it will basically look when projected. (Incidentally, David Mullen mentioned in another thread on anamorphics that it's a good idea to learn how to compose the shot using a standard viewfinder with the compressed image BECAUSE it's easier to see detail in the larger image and catch mistakes before you roll.)
Hopefully this answers your question.
