Nice work on the v3 curves. Lots of options here, you cant go wrong with either yours or mine it seems.
Ours are actually very similar if looking at the 107nit curves, at least they are to my V1 curves, they had a shallow rolloff, I have since changed mine while looking at content clipping and ended up at my v2 curves.
Just for academic comparison.
Manni's are the light grey lines, mine are the darker black lines... As for the shadow detail and midrange of the curves, they are almost completely identical to each other until the highlight rolloff, interesting,
Those of you using my curves already, looks like we have been looking at mostly the same image in regards to shadow detail and mid tones for some time now.
107Ynit / 4000nit Manni DVE / 4000nit Javs V2 curves:
107Ynit / 1100nit Manni DVE / Javs 1200nit V2 Curves, this one is slightly different in the mid tones, it will be ever so slightly brighter. Manni's 1100nit curve is actually probably rolling off at closer to 1500 nits.
Those of you that used to run my V1 curves, they had a much more shallow roll off, lets look at the 4000nit one.
107nit 4000 Manni DVE curve / Javs 4000nit V1 Curves.
If we want to further improve the shadow detail in the Revenant from either Manni's or my curves, we would need to be lifting the curves in the first 20nits or so vs the rest... Only the fire and the brightest parts of the following image are passing the ~300nit mark. 90% of this shot sits well under 100 nits.
