Re: Green TAF
Reply to: RE>>Green TAF
Yeah, we too evaluated the "new, dead-nuts-on" TAF. The Kodak boys
felt sure that they had it licked and that a setup on this TAF would
result in a very close match for "average" film. However, right there
before their very eyes, we tried it and came away with very erratic
(that's erratic, e-r-r-a-t-i-c) results which caused all of us to
wander off in different directions scratching our crania. We never
followed up on that episode. BTW, I guess we are all in agreement
that a setup with TAF yields a GREENISH result when *any* other
film is laced up.
You know, at one time we did a series of exposures to try to cor-
relate f-stops to IRE. I can't remember those results, but it was
Tom Leeser, who was our Video Opticals Director at the time who
conducted this test. I think he can be reached at his new gig:
try tom at rhythm.com. He may remember... and if he says to ask Bill,
then I guess we're stuck in and endless loop. If that happens please

...I was asked by Kodak to look at some new TAF...
...As for IRE and Fstops, I once had a client want a list that would
translate to printer lights...
