Probably many of you guys have already find out that simply turning KNEE AUTO off (even while leaving it at the default 90%, with a possibility to tweak it further should need be) - allows to get rid of the "abrupt highlights clipping" artifacts discussed in this thread.

FWIW...

Re: abrupt highlights clipping

A very old thread of mine, revived :)

But don't you worry - no ranting this time. Just to add what others may have noticed in the meantime:

- the blueish glow behind the tree branches when shot backlit can be intimidated not just by using a CINE gamma or special Knee settings in STD gammas (for better roll-off), but also by adopting a warmer overall color temperature...

The below grabs show the idea (the effect has been exaggerated to make what I mean obvious).

HTH

Piotr

PS: Sorry - those grabs here lack contrast for some reason - is it how DVInfo handles them, or what? Anyway, the way they're rendered denies my point completely; those interested please download them and add some contrast to see what I mean :)
