This question is about the mechanics of how Gamma Factor works... I know what it is, just wondering how it works in 2 specific situations. I don't own a Radiance so I can't test this until I get back to the customer site.
Let's say I setup Output Config 1 and Config 2 with the same settings in the 11 point grayscale calibration menu. But when I manually enter the numbers in the 11 point settings for each Config, I have Config 1 set to Gamma Factor 1.0 and Config set to Gamma Factor 0.90. If Config 1 measures 2.2 gamma, will Config 2 also measure 2.2? (because the Gamma Factor was set to 0.90 before entering the settings in the 11 point grayscale cal menu)
If you enter all the values for the 11-step grayscale adjustment while Gamma Factor is set to 1.0, then change Gamma Factor to 0.90, will the numbers in the 11-step grayscale admustment/cal menu change? Or do the displayed numbers stay the same even though changing Gamma Factor changes the gamma curve?
