Hi Tim,
interesting. makes sense. I agree it is definatly silly to send a final
grade to VFX. But do you find it to be more advantagous to have a raw scan
versus a basic primary grade where channels are simply shifted without
affecting the integrity of the channel in an effort to balance the channels
or to bring them between 95 and 685 if the scan is over or under? Or for
example, say a grade that does change the integrity of the channels by
shifting the gamma in the green to remove a green cast that some scanners or
HD cameras give?

I was under the impression that better keys could be pulled from a basic
balanced image. am i off here?
