    I want to calibrate my TV to the THX optimode on the new Suspiria dvd (looks like a very accurate calibration tool) - but i don't have the blue strip of film that comes with Video Essentials to set the color and tint.
    I have a complete set of roscolux photo gels, which has dozens of blue filters. Does anyone know the specific blue filter i need to use?
    thanks!

    You need the Kodak No. 98 gelatin filter - Cat. # 149 6298 and can order it from any decent photo shop.
    Good luck!

    cool - i will try and order one
    in the meantime, does anyone know which roscolux filter (it HAS to be one of the shades of blue in my sample pack) will work for calibration?
