Mach Band Testing TIFFs

This is a tar file of 52 TIFFs, all in 2020 color space, all 4096 x 2160.

They are all some variation of dark and light stripes, all meant to test the effects of an optical illusion called the Mach Band Effect. It is well described on Wikipedia, and there are other more technical documents available on search or request.

There is a question of whether the effect of having onscreen light and dark masking causes this banding, and these are meant to wander around different luminance values of stripes and backgrounds...and, of course, going out to the edges where the masking is.

These are the basis for the DCP of similar names that you can download here:
