Thanks for checking out the new settings. I'm looking forward to hearing what you find out.
I went back to Normal color space because as much as I liked a lot of the effects of Wide, at times it seemed to make some colors better while making others "too much". I couldn't get it to be consistent. For example, near the beginning of T2, when we're first introduced to John Conner, it added a nice punch to greens (the grass and bushes in the yard, green fatigue jacket) and blues (the sky and his friend's and father's blue jean jacket/pants/shirt), but at the same time reds were just unnaturally florescent--like the motorcycle seat and large tool chest. I also noticed that Wide was not necessary for extra punch with HD discs, they have more color density and richness overall. Not sure if this is due a color space spec in the mastering process or just the fact that there are many more pixels of true information than with an upconverted SD disc.
I also found that putting the Color Temp to Middle gave a nice healthy emphasis to colors by removing the yellow stain created by Low. If Low actually is 6500 K, I have a real problem with it. You know, 6500K is supposed to "represent the color of natural sunlight at noontime", and lemme tell ya--that light may be yellowish, but it ain't pee-stain colored. I don't know where people get the idea that sunlight is a dingy yellow (probably started with some color-blind nerd scientist in the 1940s), but it's not. I live in Florida and ummm, I'm out in the sunlight every afternoon and I'm hear to tell you, the white we see represented in the Middle color space is MUCH MUCH more realistic than the moldy yellow-white you get with Low. The Low color space not only stains all the white in my picture with yellow, it washes out all the colors in the picture too. Now, maybe Low doesn't really equal 6500K, I'm willing to go with that, but if it does, someone needs to seriously rethink what the white reference point is. Because I can take a sheet of white copy paper out in the afternoon and hold it out in natural light, and it is a very clean white--and this white does not exist ANYWHERE at ANYTIME in my movies so long as the Color Space is set to Low. It does however exist in my movies if the Color Space is set to Middle.
Hope I'm not rambling too much, just woke up and trying to make sense to myself.
