Red files Color space: Rec 709 Color space: RedWideGamutRGB
Gamma curve- BT.1886 Gamma curve: Log3G10
Komodo files Color space: Rec 709 Color space: RedWideGamutRGB
Gamma curve- Log3G10 Gamma curve: Log3G10

NOTE: All old projects continue to have the previous settings and are not impacted by this change. You can choose to change the colour space and Gamma space as per your requirements.
