Looking for the "right" Predator color grading...
#1
Another episode in the "right" color grading series... Big Grin

Found an interesting comparison here and I've added the HDTV caps;

from top to bottom: Italian VHS, DVD, HDTV (BD should be the same):

Interesting differences in both color and framing.

I'd be curious to see what the grading is on the jungle scenes for the Italian VHS.

The VHS looks heavily red pushed, you can see it in the text.

I'd like to see it.

I based my upscale regrade off a bunch of 35mm frames I had. Which was like the DVD but browner skin tones, less red and highlights particularly in the smoke/mist were bluish

Actually it was more blue overall.

Similar to the French and Spanish trailers on YouTube but a lot more saturated.

They looked nothing like that VHS tape

I have the Pal UK and NTSC LDs but looking at the dvd in the last shot and the vhs I would say the dvd is closer

Wish I could remember what the 35mm print looked like when I saw it

The images are from my buddy and fellow blogger "Lucius Etruscus", they were posted on his blog about the Alien universe https://aliens30anni.wordpress.com (it's in Italian) where he often compares different home video editions. If you want to see any specific scene I can ask him to pass me a screengrab.

I preserve movies as they first appeared in Italy.

Is it just me or in the last picture they have used the same font but not as "bold"? In particular, the "i" seem different (too thin)
