For those of us who did work in telecine & film in the 1990's. Im pretty sure select shots from the original camera negative were scanned (with handles) at 2K resolution on a Spirit Datacine. Probably using using a Pandora on a 1D. 3-D color lookup tables were not around yet. I was just a dallies guy at Gastown Post & Transfer in Vancouver, BC Canada. I have very limited brain power but our Lab guys engineers were super smart. I made sure I would drink lots of coffee so at least the expression on my face made it looked like I knew what the lab guys and the engineers were talking about. RIP Film and all the smart guys at Kodak.
HI , How did you like Marks node tree .. he is always great. Im new back to this stuff .. i used to work telecine dalies .. onthe old consoles.. we have so may tools now its realy exciting.. im startign from scratch .. again .. film was easy to grade back then . as the lab really had things down . we did 4 shows a night two series and two features . ( just a basic grade primary ballance ) we recorded every shot live to a tape ( digiBeta) from the telecine then we flew the worktapes on a cargo flight with frozen fish from Vancouver to LA for the editors to start at 8 am the next day .. so our facility was called gastown post and transfer ( Rainmaker ) nots its Deluxe Media and they added C03 guys and lots of us colorist had to move on . Good luck.
