    So is that the exact thing you're after? The only red visible is the neck of the undershirt.

    I had to do a double-take when I saw that pic, Neal McDonough (Lt. Hawk) then looks a lot like Chris Pine today, thought you had thrown in a bonus 'shop there for a moment.

    ^ Seems to be, yes. A little tweaking of parameters can give better results, as can taking a lot of care with the grayscale masking image that's used for calculating depth.

    Also, I compromised on the GIF parameters to bring the filesize down on that animation.
