We recently wrapped our film on Super 16mm and have since learned from the lab that two of our rolls were damaged by an x-ray machine at some point during transit. As a result, the images on these rolls have shifting contrast and brightness levels - it's like the image is pulsating.
Does anyone have any advice regarding the best way to fix this problem in post?? We understand that returning the footage to 100% quality is unlikely, but are still determined to adopt any kind of technique which may help us fix the issue and re-balance the images. Are there any Final Cut Pro filters that are dedicated to countering this kind of problem? Is there third party software dedicated to smoothing out this kind of problem?
Any advice or assistance would be hugely appreciated.
Here's a link to a brief video showing two samples of the damaged stock:
Thanks so much!
