I am kinda new at grading (to say the least), and I need to balance a free fashion try-out that was shot with a red MX on Redcode 32 with UniqOptics , Daylight balanced, Lit up with a few Daylight Divalights and 1x1 Litepanels, which the director played with (mixed Tungsten in to get a better skin tone to his eye.

 

Problem is, While the Diva lights project some Magenta on the subject and is not too dramatic because they were diffused behind an half muslim, the Litepanels that were cast directly at the subject project horrible green shadows, and I don't know how to deal with that! Could anyone help me?

Can you post some frames? It's hard to tell from your description how mixed the two sources are on the subject.

Seems that you don't have the RED codec updated in your mac/pc. Something like that happens to me and downloading the last driver was the solution. Hope it helps!
