[Kevin Camin]"What is e-sRGB? My initial Google searches have been lackluster. So I was hoping someone here could share if they ever use this color space?"
I wasn't familiar with e-sRGB, so I looked it up, too. As best I can tell, it's based on sRGB, with an extended gamut to allow encoding colors that fall outside the reproducible range on a standard computer monitor. My guess is that it's an effort to make sRGB a bit more print-friendly, but I don't know how it compares to Adobe RGB or ProPhoto RGB or why it might be preferable to either of those spaces in a color-managed system.
It might make a nice working space in AE, since it's larger than sRGB, but I wouldn't output with it unless specifically requested.
I'm sorry I'm not more familiar with it, so I can't give you a more thorough response. I do hope this helps a bit.
