Certainly, showing the client the TAF lineup settings also doesn't win
any friends, particularly if the DP is in the audience.  I tend to
equivocate: zero out the secondaries, unclip everything, balance
the primaries, and store it somewhere.  The client just wants to see
something reasonable.  They don't really enjoy hearing excuses ;-).

Absolutely, but of course we must take into account the medium-- the
phosphors, the bandwidth, ...ad infinitum... given so many caveats, I
wonder if it could be done.  Perhaps a BTS machine, with an alternate
light path, with the polarity somehow reversed, rear-projected onto a
large ground glass in the suite.  I'll bet it would look incredible.

I'd like this as well.  How does one stop equate to FootLamberts, or
to IRE?
