What's the Smoke Vectorscope 0 and 100 level stand for???

Hi all,

I'm a newest smoke user. I want to know what kind of environment Smoke's Vectorscope work in.

Because a full range(0-1023) dpx exported from Filmlight Baselight can not totally show its range in Smoke Vectorscope. How can I know the 0 and 100 in Smoke Vectorscope present for?
What if any file be imported to Smoke, Smoke will auto scale or crop the colour range to legal range? Where can I make sure the setting in Smoke.
I didn't find the answer in user guide, so I need some help.
PLEASE~~~~~

Hi Jessie,

First of all welcome.

Secondly, Smoke never clips any colour information unless you explicitly tell it too. You can very happily import 16bit float images with no clipping into Smoke.

As for the vectorscope and waveform, they are designed along broadcast specifications. So they will only show you the values that are in legal specifications. Any values about this may look clipped because they will in any hardware vectorscope or waveform however the data in not clipped internally by smoke and you have access to the full range of colour information.

Hope this clarifies it for you.

Regards
Grant
