Short description of error
Compositor RGB Curves node gives false colours when set to 'Film like' and when any of R,G,B channels are adjusted. Adjustment of C channel alone is OK.

sidenote; Constant hue adjustment is definitely an interesting feature to have! But since film often has various hue shifts going on, if anything, 'Standard' is possibly closer with a typical S-curve - a bias to cyan, magenta, yellow in the highlights corresponding to the curve shoulder.

'Hue hold' or 'Hue lock' could be alternative names.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
Load attached .blend, render.



  • Muting the noise texture hides the issue in this example.
  • Stepping through the emission strength from 0.0 to 1.0 gives varying results. Might be a clue to the cause?
