> the Film panel. The exposure option in the film panel will be removed
> eventually, it's a separation option but it should really be using the

> avoided when possible, there is no right way to use it, depends a bit
> on the image what looks best, but the result will be subtly wrong
> either way. Ideally you should never do color space conversion on an
> image that has an alpha channel, which means working in linear float
> color space and only doing the color space conversion at the very end
> when everything is composited together. Though it's not always
> possible to set up an entirely correct color pipeline with external
> tools involved.
