Well I tried.
But when the facts gleaned start to return to where it all started, then it would be appreciated to see that such mention is made that those facts represent not "new thinking" but the realization that the "status quo" has been repeated.
There is no pride or huffiness there in that statement, just a issuing of personal disappointment that so much work that went into getting a complex equation nailed can be shunted aside in favor of trying continuing to reinvent the Wheel. For re-inventing it is. Way back when a few decided to start a new thread that essentially tried to re-discover the route to advanced Ambient Light performance, and primarily tried to negate the contribution BF had made, it became apparent that the resulting "discoveries" were no more than the re-hashing of previously posted info.
And if someone varied from those older standards, it all quickly went to hell.
That of course is NOT the intent of this thread.....I know that.
Those first complicated mixes have become less loaded down with zillions of components, but for the life of me, I cannot recall a single advance down that direction that did not come from PB_Maxxx. We both together reasoned much of it out, but PB_...., he's the Color Meister!
Not that I don't like or approve of checking it all out seven ways to Sunday though. Getting conformation and validation from such a person as wbassett mentioned above is very important, and valuable in assisting others to plunge ahead with confidence. But the road is already surveyed and paved, one need but proceed at a reasonable speed, watch out for curves and leaping/scurrying critters, and avoiding the "Road Kill" failure represents.
Gotta stop for Gas now.
(...no wise cracks please....
