The color timing helped define locations and enhance and ensure the mood of scenes worked and that the entire movie flowed. On top of color timing, were added, a lot of little nuances fine-tuning on the image such as enhancing the mutant’s traits like the color of the tongue and the eye's iris details. But most of the detailing time was utilised to ensure the realistic integration of the VFX. Hrithik and Rakesh took a very active role in the DI process ensuring their high vision was reached.
