Yes, this is true, color and color temperature DOES matter and affects tonal values because of changes in color frequency. FX compositors use a technique where you flip into separate RBG channels and match up the tonal values with their back plates.
Awesome! Very inspiring, great work.
Good article, nice find.
Great post, awesome info!
Pretty pricey, wouldn't you say?
Do you use Davinci resolve? In the studio version there is a mist feature that may work for what you're trying to do. Also, I found this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WvqZjh7mNPw The tutorial suggests duplicating the layer, using a luma key to isolate the highlights, and then blurring out layer with the luma key on it to blur out just the highlights. That's sounds like a good thing to try as well. Good luck.
