Does anyone have any experience stabilizing color in old archival film? I have a shot that we are fixing up dirt and movement wise but the colors seem to have deteriorated in an un-even way from frame to frame and channel to channel. I tried separating the color from the luminance channels in Shake and averaged the color frames together and it helps but anything that moves a lot does not work. I was trying to see if the Foundry might have something for this but I don't see any specific tools that specifically tackles this problem.

I used to use combustion for this type of thing, and would create some master reference frames for each scene and use the auto colour match tool.

Have you tried Davinci software?

The DaVinci restoration software? I have not. I do not have access to it. Is there a color stabilizer in Resolve?
