RE: Flame/Inferno Coloring

Hmm! OK, so telecine's got all this great colour correcting stuff now:
but is it the right place to be doing fine colour correction, for
material that's going on to online, Flame etc?

IMHO . . .(as an observer -  I'm not a colorist or a Flame operator) . .

Firstly, colour correcting any shot or element really needs the rest of
the shots in the scene, or the rest of the elements in the (final) shot
to be colour corrected at the same time, in the final sequence. 

Secondly, final grading at this early stage can result in loss of data
too soon. The film has much more data than the final video image can
reproduce on a monitor: This needs to be carried through the post
production system right up to the end product, and the decisions made

Agreed, there's plenty more to do in the Flame suite.  But that's just
the way the operation is configured now.

Any comments, anyone?  

Meanwhile . .

And still the best part of 100 years in front of it, I suspect:-)
