No, you’re right. I referred to power as percentage and it’s not.
I used the output method @takitus mentioned in the other thread - it’s the easiest way I know of to quickly and accurately change pure white.
I could have changed it to 254 for absolute precision but I just dragged it a bit and ended up around 249-250. It was close enough for my needs.
Which leads me to, @chris1 - yes, there is more granularity in there than 1-100% gray. For the action of burning wood though, I find the scale of 1-100% accurate enough for my purposes and it’s an easier idea to relate than .028% gray and in the end, we humans can’t really discern between grays very well. I think we can only “see”/identify about 30-35 shades.
I can see where this trips people up and I can see both sides of how it should be done as far as minimum power should be minimum power for the project, or whites should be ignored. Or transparency should be ignored. I feel like they implemented it correctly but the process of not allowing pure white in a file isn’t exactly common knowledge.
I can see cases where i would want pure white just ignored - and I can see cases where I would want it marked (like my above example). Maybe a checkbox here might be best, maybe not. The merits of such would need more than the 3 minutes I’ve thought about it.
