Less expensive, better quality

Eastman Kodak has come out with SFX 200T, a new color negative film stock that could translate into substantial savings and better image quality for special effects and post-production houses.

The film practically eliminates “fringing,” a color variance that appears around digitally composited images that have been photographed against blue or green screens.

Hoyt Yeatman, visual effects supervisor at Dream Quest Images on Disney’s upcoming “Mighty Joe Young,” helped develop the film with Kodak because fringing would’ve proved a major problem with the gorilla’s hairs in the film.
