[Tig] D.I and 6500k
Thu Mar 3 20:47:39 GMT 2005
Cem, the reason for this is that most movie projectors have a light
source that is about 5400 Kelvin. Whites therefore are yellower than
they would be at 6500K, and the DI suite has to match these viewing
There does not seem to be a proper standard for DI suites at present,
and I have seen folks work at anywhere between 5000K and 5500K. There
also seems to be a similar variability is light boxes that are used
to back-illuminate 35mm print for viewing.
Hope this answers your question.
