gamut question please - why bother?

Apr 5, 2013 9:15 PM

One way or another, you find out some color(s) is out of gamut.

In such a case, you will see in your final output the max that is

available, right?  No contrast or saturation change will change

that. So why agonize or gyrate about what is unavailable?

Or is the concern featureless, textureless area?

Thanks anyone.

    You need make the appropriate choice in rendering of course. Perceptual, relative, or absolute.

    The concern is fixing your color so they won't look bad in the final output.

    Yes, out of gamut colors will be clipped and lose detail.

    But they might also shift hue a bit, or lose saturation, or change lightness.

    I think you should post your question in the Existentialism forum. Maybe Camus can help you.
