Ok then, I guess your issue was knob twiddling of color heads, which may be used successfully by projecting white light onto graded papers (i.e., no adjustments of any kind being necessary), versus using separate filter gels for contrast under white light of virtually any head type for VC papers. Thanks for the clarification.
