    I'm curious as to whether, after telecine, the video before color correction tends to be more or less saturated than the final product?

  2. What colour correction are you referring to? I assume it's the combination of DGIndex and ColorMatrix, but 99.9999999999999% of the time it's probably doing nothing.

    The difference is rec.601 colorimetry (SD) vs rec.709 (HD). If it's wrong reds can look a bit darker and blue and green a bit brighter, or the other way around red can look a bit more orange and blur and green get darker, but the difference is generally pretty subtle.

    To see the difference try to find a scene with as much red as possible as it tends to be more noticeable.
    ColorMatrix(mode="Rec.709->Rec.601", clamp=0)
    ColorMatrix(mode="Rec.601->Rec.709", clamp=0)

    If that's not what you're referring to, I'm not sure what you mean. Telecine shouldn't effect the saturation.
