This is interesting. It looks to me that your DPX doesn't have a gamma
applied at all. But I've only been able to check using ffmpeg's histogram
filter that just shows the pixel values without any transforms (right,
people with better knowledge about it than I have?). And the lightworks
scopes. I'll compare yours and mine on the nuke, flame, smoke and lustre
machines tomorrow if I can get some time with them.
