If there isn't some sort of reference then what are all the reference monitors using? Is the dummies guide right or wrong about studio monitors using 2.2? If you know the answer to this then why not just come out and say it? Instead you beat around the bush taking the high stance, not saying anything other than I'm wrong and need to read up on the subject.
I already told you the answer. 2.2 is not reference and there currently is not a defined reference for digital displays
. How many times does that need to be repeated before you get it? I also advised you where to look to find more information regarding gamma (the display calibration forum
). You chose to post that silly ass remark when I gave you that recommendation.
Yes I know what a BVM is, my question was about the article refering to them as 'classic' and whether that indicates they are still being used today. You've said in 'some cases' they are. Can you clarify how much of current video content is being mastered for 2.4 gamma? I get the feeling it's being mastered for 2.2 but there seems to be some doubt about this.
At this point you are not going to be satisfied until someone tells you 2.2 is reference. Since that is the case, what I have posted and what Poynton has in his blog is meaningless.
Again, the very simple question regarding how bright a 50% window should be in relation to a 100% 40ftL window: do you know the answer to this question?
READ what I posted above and figure it out.... or believe whatever you want.
I don't know the answer and I would suggest that if you don't know then neither of us are qualified to say what gamma should be.
You don't know what the answer is, yet I've stated it time and time again? And you "suggest" I do something???? LMFAOTHERE IS NOT A DEFINED REFERENCE GAMMA!
You choose the gamma based on the room lighting conditions. Geez!
