You could use expressions... You create sliders for each input, then feed their output to the actual effects. Something like
should do in most cases. Still, be careful. Not everything written in that book directly applies to AE. It does not figure in any specifics of color management nor different Gammas which could massively skew results because the source footage will already be pre-adjusted and the comp will add another level of adjustments.
>Oh, and while I'm here.....I'll throw this in: In AE, when you apply >the "Curves" effect, can you input precise values for input / output.
Nope. AE's Curve effect will adapt to the project bit depth as a lot of other effects, presenting you with the problem of which values to actually use. This would only make sense if the effect itself would be independent from AE and process in float all the time and only the inputs were presented as different normalized ranges. There was/ should have been an alternative Curves effect from Frischluft, but at this point development has reached a dead stop, so it's doubtful it will ever be unleashed upon the world.

HTML-Code functionality had to be disabled thanks to spammers. :-|
Thanks much for the response. Regarding the RGB proportions, 'll give the sliders concept a go and see how that works. The curves thing makes more sense now after your explanation. Figured something had to have changed regarding the HTML functionality on the management side. Thanks again!

You can still post a direct link on a single line and the Forum engine will hyperlink it - not so tidy, but does the job.
Thanks for that tip! I'll give that a go next time around.
