We've seen some of the benefits that are available to us, when we are working in Photoshop 16-bit per channel mode. Now, let's compare 16-bits per channel to 32-bits per channel. I was telling you at the outside of this whole thing in a live-action piece, how that essentially boils down to several octillion colors inside of an image when you working in the 32-bit per channel mode, which is of course ridiculous. We don't need several octillion colors available to us. What's really great about 32-bit color is we have floating point control, meaning that we can violate our highlights and shadows. It works like this, going back to the analogy with the people in the room playing musical chairs, and of course, the people are the luminance levels.
