Explaining Gamma

I’ve done a video tutorial on the very _basics_ of what gamma correction and linear workflow is, and why you need to use it, especially if you’re lighting interiors.

I realise there are many threads and tutorials on the subject, but none of them explained to me what gamma is, and why it exists anyway!

This is my take on the explanation.

PLEASE bear in mind this is meant to be _very_ simplistic, and almost certainly leaves out certain topics or concepts. It is designed to help those, like me, who have heard about it, wanted to use it, but were put off by the technical aspects of it.

I just hope enough of my understanding on this is correct to be useful!
