The camera's maximum limit in terms of Dynamic Range is 2000% Scene Reflectance. What would the code value of 18% scene reflectance gray be in a 16bit Linear Raw File? Thanks

18% has no special meaning for raw.

True, but are all video file formats gamma encoded?

OTOH, "linear" may just be a reference to the tone-curve.

Not knowledgeable about video formats to know either way.
