Mat and Frame: Wall simulated lighting and Printer Curves

Postby tomczak » June 3rd, 2013, 6:39 am

I just discovered the simulated lighting in Wall tab of the Mat and Frame - superb!

A question: while Printer Curves can be opened at the same time as Mat and Frame, the curves seem to be applied to all image windows and previews, but not to Mat and Frame preview. Is that by design?

While it is possible to open the Mat & Frame, apply simulated lighting in Mat's Wall tab, then try using Printer Curves to match the input image to the Mat & Frame preview by eye, would it make sense to have a "Copy to Printer Curves" button in Mat & Frame/Wall that would copy the lookup tables used to simulate Mat & Frame preview to the current Printer Curves memory?

Mat and Frame simulates dim lighting by applying a gamma curve of 1.3 or 1.6. If this was applied on top of printer curves it would do a double correction. It's there just to do a quick check of lighting effects.
