The colors flickered quite a bit in that scene, so it seems possible that a still frame could yield a variety of different colors.
Didn't Vaders saber show up pink at times as well?
As a matter of fact yes Vader's did show up as pink a few times in Empire and ROTJ.
Well, I was refering to ANH, as that's the scene that stuck out in my mind with Vader having an odd saber color, but it was also pink at times in the other 2 as well? I'll have to rewatch them and take note.
But those newly animated sabers did look real bad at times in those DVDs. The scene in ROTJ where Luke finally ignites his saber to attack the Emporer and Vader blocks him, you see the sabers crossed in front of Palpatines face. In the original they were white cored with the correct looking rotoscoping, while in the DVD, the sabers were a solid color, and Vader's saber looked more orange than red.
Kind of sloppy IMO. It's a wonder Lucas let these things out in that condition. I thought he was such a stickler for detail and a perfectionist when it came to these movies.
