Color Bit Depth:Float

I'm using some float images with combustion 2.1 and if i apply Brightness& contrast or another filter seams that the "high dynamic range" does not appear(the image flattens like if it was 8 bit). The footage is set to float, like the composite. Any suggestions?

It should be alright, are you sure the image is floating point? You didnt clamp the range by accident when rendering & then just save it as a float image? Are you using an RPF?

I am trying with cineon and 16 bit (with non campled color) .rpf's. Could it be the lut?

Could be, You could try view LUT & see if that makes a difference to what it looks like on screen

This might be a no-brainer, but you dont have your desktop depth at 16 bit do you?

Well, playing wit Lut i get the dynamic range i wan't(so it's not internally clamped), but I apply then brighnest&contrast and cannot go beyond or below the dynamic range(like in hdrishop changing the exposure)
I would be very glad if I see with and example i'm wrong

Try using the histogram in the colour corrector instead of the brightness contrast, just shift around the centre arrow, which should effect a 'gamma' change as opposed to shifting the whole range, that will leave the white & black points alone, & may end up more what you are after.

Also, if that still doesnt work, to narrow down where the problem is arising, you could try rendering out to a floating point TIFF file, & load that up in Combustion & HDR Shop. Then see if it behaves like a HDRI in HDR Shop, that would let you know whether it is your renderer, or combustion that is letting you down.

It's not exactly like I imagined in my dreams , but well, seams to work manipulating the histogram. Thanks Chris !!
