    • I could be mistaken on the technical details, but I think the only time it's really converted from the raw color space is when you export the file. Until that point, everything is done in the raw color space and what you see on screen is just a rendering. So nothing is lost until the final export, which would be separate processes that stem from the raw file for each color space you export to.

    • hi Chris, I'm happy you found my review helpful and my wallpapers nice :)
      You don't double your losses, it's opposite. The idea is that you edit in a wider space keeping all the data around and convert to a smaller space only as the last step. This way you'll avoid the banding and have smoother gradients. You may edit in ProPhoto, which is much larger than Adobe RGB but I see no benefit in that if your screen is showing 99% Adobe RGB.
      Regarding vertical space, are you editing vertical videos or you just need a bit more space and that's it? In case of a vertical video, these photography monitors can be rotated in a portrait mode. Otherwise, if the screen is 4K, just use part of the screen for editing and the rest for your tools. Btw, never heard about sRGB being better for skin tones (I get your 8-bit reference here but still).
