After Effects 1.0 gamma blending

Recommended Posts

So i've got my AE project set to "blend colors using 1.0 gamma" like all the color management gurus recommend. So far so good, everything looks good and i should be a happy animator if it wasn't for a problem with the overlay blending mode. Without the 1.0 gamma setting, all areas with a value of 50% grey disappear when set to overlay - wich can be quite helpful from time to time. But using the 1.0 gamma, this doesn't work anymore and the image gets darker as soon as i overlay a 50% grey solid.


I guess this comes from 50% grey not looking like 50% grey in linear light. Does anybody know the correct grey value to compensate for this behaviour?
