RED Compensation

One of The Hobbit production videos demonstrated how they had to unnaturally color-saturate sets and apply off-color makeup to actually appear more natural. This was disappointing to me because it seemed a lot like "Emperor's Clothes" to have such hyped equipment in need of the kind of color compensation and special handling used over 70 years ago. It seems like a step backward in those terms - primitive, in a way, and more trouble than anticipated by casually informed fans like me. I'm fond of likening it to the extreme measures they had to take for the Technicolor cameras and film on the set of The Wizard of Oz.

Any comments?
