gamma was removed because it was not working anyway lately, and having separate gamma controls from 3dsmax was confusing. Also removing it speeds up image saving by 100% :D

Personally the separate Gamma never misled me.

Please return spinner "Gamma", even if hidden with access via maxscript =(
+100!+500!!
Please turn gamut back in debug menu. Many people always use it in their works. These who don't use it can simple skip this option. For example, I always use it in the each my project and if this option there won't be in next releases then my work will become to be very uncomfortable. Does user need a stripped-down tool?

I don't understand..  why is this not done in Post? why are you tweaking your gamma in the frame buffer anyway?

Anyway, leave gamma out of it, no one needs it :P  just to go against the grain! haha

i agree!
because without gamma now need to always do post-processing. Contrast is not as useful for obtaining the desired result.
Corona - the best rendering solution!

By the way, maybe just place Gamut into Exposure and color mapping?
ps: As for me I don't touch default 2.2

Gamma as post-production contrast altering tool is just poor mid-tones affecting curve. I would be vary of incorporating something as confusing as that, since gamma is foremost used for different purpose than post-production inside Render controls.
It could be in frame-buffer, if it would be clearly in post-production section, but rather not in Main UI.

You have probably incorrectly set up 3dsmax - you need to fill 2.2 everywhere and check all checkboxes in the gamma/lut config

Why incorrectly?
According to Your advice I switched off gamma, for operation of VFB in gamma 1.

Why do you need the gamma spinner?

The gamma should be set at 2.2 for work, and if you render in full float you will get an untoned exr image, after that apply your gamma in comp, since you have a full float image you can do whatever you want.

You should not be playing with gamma for correcting the render IMHO, you should get a linear full float image to work in comp.

Master Zap did a great post about this some years ago.

Cheers!
