Default Have you seen any vintage color 8mm that has not faded?

All the vintage color I've seen has turned red.

Quote 'Color fading is caused by spontaneous chemical changes in the image dyes of color films. Many older films have taken on a distinct purplish cast, caused by the rapid fading of the cyan and yellow image dyes. Negatives, interpositives and prints are all affected in the same way. While earlier generations of color films would fade in just a few years when kept at room temperature, today's films are more stable; significant fading will occur in about 40 years at room conditions. Despite manufacturers’ efforts to improve the stability of their products, the only way to guarantee centuries of useful life for color films is to keep them in cold storage. The colder the conditions, the slower the fading, and the longer the lifetime of the film.' End Quote

Seems it starts to happen as soon as it is printed. I recently saw a TV interview with Scorsese and he talked about the problem and about how he and George Lucas try to overcolour the dyes on masters to try to compensate for the fading. Nothing you can do other than get it onto video as a backup.
