That is interesting... I'll have to check that out later. Colour checking by numbers and not by my eye! I don't notice any change but the numbers would indicate otherwise.

i tried all blending possib., but there wasnt any nice than "abblenden" and also no better one (?)

when i visually analyze the original grain in the film scan at lets say 300% magnification or more, its also looking like noise, which i can reproduce with "add noise" filter but the noise has always the color the background is like. for example in the sky, the filmgrain is blueshaded and over skin its brown-beige shaded. my noise level is just a black grain and doesnt have the color the background or person has, if i add colornoise in the filteroption, the color is like a rainbow and doesnt look real, too.

any idea?

try to get the same film and have it developed so you get a blank strip
have this scanned and use the overlay option to bring in only the filmgrain...
