Good to know. In Silhouette before v4.5 alpha overlay was never affected by gain/gamma.

Unfortunately this isnt configurable in the config. The code you'll
need to change will probably be similar to:
https://github.com/imageworks/OpenColorIO/blob/master/src/apps/ociodisplay/main.cpp#L475
and this:
https://github.com/imageworks/OpenColorIO/blob/master/src/apps/ociodisplay/main.cpp#L500

(You'll want to create 3 channels of gain / gamma, instead of 4).

My vote would be as a user preference at the application level. It
seems like a UI level issue, as it doesnt have the potential to affect
image output. (So there's no fear of this setting changing render
outputs on the cue, etc).
Agreed. Thanks for the advice.
