What is better to mix in terms of color accuracy - tungsten with dichroic daylight filter with Kino Flo Diva-Lite 5500K or tungsten with Kino Flo Diva-Lite 3200K?

Tungsten with dichroic always looks a bit funky to the eye and usually isn't quite standard daylight - dichroic lamps are more like 5000K, filters vary; but the bigger issue is the amount of light you lose with the filter: 50% with best glass filters. Going the other way around - tungsten lights with KF32 lamps - is a more efficient way to do it, no light loss on either side. The KF32s usually end up around 3400K IMO, so if you want a perfect match a 1/8 CTO works.
