In case you missed this thread, I thought I put it in the spotlight here:

It’s one of those things in filmmaking that seem to never get old.

 

P. S. Sorry for the title. It again got cut off, and I have no idea how. I meant to say: Orange & Teal: A Colourist’s Guide.

Is it just me, or is this stuff all really rather simple?

 

A lot of that article is just Vectorscope 101, or more generally Hue Wheel 101.

 

An awful lot of colourism (to coin a term) seems to me to involve using the largest possible number of words to describe something that's very straightforward. The operation of a vectorscope and its application in creating colour contrast can be explained in seconds to anyone who's done a post-16 art qualification and who will have encountered the concept of hue angle.

No, nothing wrong with the straightforward approach.

 

I'm just not sure it's worth a huge explanation as given on that web page.
