What program, plug-in, setting is this referring to?

Glenn, this is just a variable setting on my new XL2, so I guess this could be in the wrong thread. But I though that this was possibly a general term for dv. In that respect, if you could help me out, that would be great but if not I understand.

I don't have that camera so I don't know what it does. It probably refers to the camera's gamma curve response (kind of like how brightness/luminance values get recorded).

The manual would probably have information on this setting?

Black stretch will lighten the dark areas of the image, press will make them darker.
