Question about RGB tool
I have been using the RGB tool more and more as I have switched to a monochrome camera. It has taken me a while to realize that I need to click the "new formula" button every time I change the preset if I want a re-calculated image. Now that I have the hang of that ...
What does the bg slider do?
I'm assuming that the first slide of each channel changes the weight of that channel (default of 1x is all channels weighted evenly).
The RGB sliders all make sense - the relative weights of each color being associated with the assigned channel.
And finally, how does the L slider work?
If I have taken LRGB at exposure ratios of 0.5:1:1:1 (e.g. luminance exposures of half duration of the R, G and B filters), then what settings would most closely represent what a OSC camera does with a typical Bayer matrix?
I realize that there are a few questions in here, but the ones I'm most interested in have to do with the bg slider and the L slider.
Any advice there? I'm just trying to get a general description of what those are doing.
Any additional advice / tutoring on RGB combining would be appreciated, too.
And the "0.51" above is really "0.5-to-1".
