I'm in the early stages of a project and we're heavily leaning towards black and white. My question relates to the CRI of our lighting fixtures.
Considering CRI is specifically the Color Rendering Index, can we just ignore it on B&W projects? My first thought is yes, but I want to cover my bases in case I'm forgetting any beneficial qualities high-CRI lights provide beyond accurate color.
Furthermore, does the answer change depending on shooting format? (B&W Film vs. Epic/Alexa Monochrome vs. shooting color and grading in post)
Thanks for contributing and I appreciate your advice!
