You know nothing about video. You [don't] know what you are talking about. Your links are bizarre.

You don't shoot video, you can't view HDR video, and you [don't] want to learn. I gave you links about the dynamic range limits of Rec. 709.

Read this again and tell me where it SPECIFIES a dynamic range limit or even mentions dynamic range.!!PDF-E.pdf

Here's a link to Rec. 2020:!!PDF-E.pdf

So please refrain from misleading this forum by stating or even implying that the recommendations specify a dynamic range limit.

About the limits of 8bit. You do not need to thank me for trying to educate you about video. Please stick around and do not be afraid of being ignorant so you can learn.

Pure linear blue, running from about 4% HSV value up to 100% at top, 1080px from top to bottom. Anyone see dire horizontal banding? Apart from the OP, that is ...
