Default Using Scripts for Tweaking My Lumagen Pro Dynamic Tone Mapping

I have a couple of new uses for Scripts.

1) I have generated a Script with scenes of some of the most sensitive scenes (i.e. Mad Max: Fury Road - Sand Storm; Blade Runner 2049; Alpha; Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, etc.) to use when tweaking my Dynamic Tone Mapping with the Lumagen Pro. It makes it possible to tweak things for one movie and quickly check out how it affects other movies.

2) I have another script that has the HDR and HD versions (and UHD, if available) of the same scenes that play back-to-back to let me compare HDR to SDR versions of the same scenes and make decisions on trades with the tone mapping.

Both of these have been helpful to me in understanding all of the parameters involved in tone mapping using the Lumagen and how to make the trade-offs for the best overall picture.

I couldn't do this without Kaleidescape and the Strato.

John

A scene near the beginning when the points are being evaluate for pass/fail. I had to tweak to get the flames of the fire to look right.
