    I just want to ask if you are limited to the shades and tints within the colour gamut you have selectedÉ I was doing a quick cheeta study and found myself darkening the colours a little and lightening them to get the values I needed to describe the form in that bright out door african lighting.

    The audio seems to be messed up before 0:48. I could just be wrong, but I refreshed the page a few times.
