Thank you for an excellent and interesting video. I like your paper and pen approach, it makes you “digest” the information gradually instead of displaying a full and complicated slide from the outset and then start explaining. I’m looking forward to the next video(s)…!
In the meantime two questions: You mention that the global tone map tool is broken. Is the tone mapping tool also broken?
From your video, I understand that you always need the base curve (or filmic). However, in many cases or maybe in all cases the base curve is not enough. You need further adjustments. Why is that the case?
I’m sure you recognize the following picture. The contrast between the shadows and the highlights is much bigger than my eyes recorded it at the time?
