I think Chris Ryan gave you the answers, as for me I am still waiting for
someone to show me a good emulation of a print with custom curves, I am
convinced the tools we have can't do what they should do.

Yes we are talking about the same thing, but the problem is that you have
to work with the same curve since it is not programable in a grading list,
the ideal world would be that you use black and white level to fill your
700mvlts and work on the contrast with the curve: not possible today.

My cristal ball told me the same thing about these amazing things :-) In
any case good luck and welcome to the most creative part of
post-production, you seem to have a good future in this business by judging
of your understanding of telecine.
