Re: filmscanners: which space?

That's not exactly the case.  What is the case is that a particular Hue,
Intensity value - what our eyes perceive as a unique 'color value' can be
rendered with multiple combinations of RGB.  The same is not true for CYMK

So when you map from RGB into ANY color space, you essentially lose some
information.  Namely you lose the mapping back to the original value
settings.  That doesn't mean you can't get back to an RGB triplet that will
look the same, but it does mean that say if you had set the RGB triplet
value to Rx,Gy,Bz then mapped to CYMK and you went back, Rx',Gy',Bz' might
not have

This matters because you then can't just 'undo' any filtering you did prior
to the mapping.  Other color spaces have unique tuplet values.  This has to
do with the fact that in CYMK, intensity is mapped into the gray-scale K,
whereas in RGB, intensity is a function of the particulare RGB values.
