Well, that's the thing. If it doesn't matter in actual viewing, I'm not going to deny it or not deny it: I just don't care. The bottom line is that the overall viewing experience in IMAX 3D was not teal or "modernized" or whatever, it looked well-balanced and natural, and this appears to be the same in terms of color. I'll leave the pedantry and screenshot colorimetry (which I consider completely silly, given how poorly humans percieve absolute color) to others.
Maybe the digital colorist erred on the side of teal in some shots. I'm still struggling to understand why a teal push is worse than any other color push, aside from the fact that's it fashionable to whine about. Maybe the colorist made it too red or blue for the old transfer. What matters is the color on the original prints, and neither of us have one handy. From my experience, the considerable majority of DVD-era video transfers have colors/contrast/brightness that are way off from the prints.Edited by 42041 - 9/2/12 at 7:54pm
