Hello, can you tell me what the difference is between the color in kelvin and the temperature?
In this example, setting it the same light, with the same corona intensity produces two different results, in addition to understanding the difference between the two modes I would like to understand which would be the most correct to set on artificial sources.
Thank you

Well, I can't speak for C4D, but we integrate spectral response over the domain of the physically-correct theoretical blackbody radiation function and convert that to RGB with maximal component being 1. The color should thus be precise up to a multiplicative constant (i.e. the light can be lighter or darker)
