As for nuke vs photoshop, well PS has no true plus operation the closest it comes is screen, so it's actually not possible to put something back together in PS, it will do for a quick job but it's not a true compositing application.
Really? I thought Linear Dodge was an add operation. Have you tried Fusion, if so what's your opinion?

you are quite right Linear Dodge is a simple l1 + l2 operation so plus, can't believe that slipped my mind i'm getting old DO'H, and there are of course ways to unpremult an alpha in PS as well it's just a PITA I'm not trying to put anyone of PS

I've no real experience with fusion, but i hear good things so...

hi everyone! i have a problem with color management in maya 2016. My render is too light.


I'm following the gnomon tutorial and set up a material, in the lesson fresnel is off, but i decided turn it on, and got this

but is still too light, so i decided turn color management off and i got better result, but i realize that it's incorrect.

any advises.
p/s sorry for my english

It looks like you have physical sun and sky for this, which may add an additional gamma correction of 2.2 for your camera via an mia_exposure_simple node, I think. Checking in Maya 2016.5, it doesn't appear to do that anymore, but that could be my setup. So I believe with color management on, you would get double the correction, which you don't want. Either disconnect the exposure node from your camera, or turn the gamma correction to 1. I hope that's the solution.
