can someone tell me, what the “Clip out-of-gamut colors” box in the Exposure tab is for? Actually, I understand what clipping out of gamut colours means, but which gamut is meant here? Is this the working profile gamut or the output profile gamut or is it the displays profile gamut? I haven’t found any information on RawPedia, so far.
I would assume that activating the “Clip out-of-gamut colors” box means, that colours which are beyond the output profiles gamut become clipped, whereas all colours will be preserved by a kind of perceptual rendering intent, if the box is unchecked.
Is that assumption correct?
Moreover, the German translation of the boxes name confuses me. It’s translated with “Farben auf Farbraum beschränken” which means „ Restrict colours to colour space”. In my opinion this is the opposite of “Clip out-of-gamut colors” because only colours which are out of gamut (or out of colour space) became clipped. Therefore no clipping will occur if the box is checked, which is the opposite of the English naming.
Or, to say it another way:
In English version:
Box is checked means: Relative Colorimetric rendering intent
Box is unchecked means: Perceptual rendering intent
In German version:
Box is checked means: Perceptual rendering intent
Box is unchecked means: Relative Colorimetric rendering intent
So the German translation is unfortunate, in my view.
I would be very happy if someone could bring some light into the darkness
Thanks a lot
