Typical Autodesk taking mundane tweaks and calling them "features".
I remember for Maya it might have been Maya 2008, Autodesk rearranged all the hotkeys and called it a new feature!!! So for longtime users of Maya suddenly those keys we spent so long remembering were useless.
All so Autodesk would claim another "feature" to sell the upgrade. I think I cancelled subscription that year.
If its cold enough you would wear a beanie too.
Do you even get what I'm saying. Its a last resort. If you have to use colour to translate whats happening to a mood that means many other levels failed first, direction, performance, framing and on.
Thats why its lazy and viewers associate it with bad films. Have a look and you'll see a lot more bad films than good that resort to this. It might be a tool but that doesn't mean you have to use it.
Kubrick was overrated and Eyes Wide Shut was an awful movie. Truely awful.
Having to achieve a mood through colour is a last resort and lazy to me. Audiences are a bit more sophisticated these days and don't need to be treated like children.
There are many ways to convey cold before having to resort to blue.
I really hate this, not NFS for this post but the fact that some movies still subscribe to this colour bull$#!t.
In life when its cold light doesn't turn blue, when things are passionate theres not suddenly more red.
When we first saw Darth Vader in the 70's and he made that entrance boarding the ship the audience instinctively knew to crap themselves. There was no change in colour, it didn't go dark etc yet everyones sphincters tightened.
Its a childish filming technique and condescending to the audience and its lazy.
