Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO2003085452
Kind Code:
A3
Abstract:
A method and system for color correcting and completing answerprints in preparation for making final copies of motion pictures for distribution. A light system is provided in which colors of the light projected through a film (22) toward a viewing screen (24) can be individually and incrementally adjusted as desired for use by a color "Timer" who is an individual that selects color corrections on a scene-by-scene basis until a suitable look is achieved. Color correction is performed in real time while watching the film scene projected on the screen. The color adjustments are stored and subsequently used to control a motion picture film printer when printing a corrected version of scenes of the film.
