Thank you so much GG, for your exhaustive explanation!

The Smoothing feature is a good feature but I don't like as it works 
because, I think (and maybe I wrong ), it "false"
what I am seeing. For me these tools are (should be) like a Oscilloscope 
instrument (or a multimeter, if you want): if the signal is a Sin wave 
1Vpp at 1kHz the instrument should show me that. But, I understand that 
here it is a bit different.

I don't understand this. You said: "More colors increment more bins.  
Fewer colors increment fewer bins."

Good explain, with the pile "graph".

I would like to do more tests about, from user point of view, to 
understand what diffences there are from Photography programs.

I don't know what algorithm use the other NLE's and Graphic softwares, 
so I can not help on that. Sorry.

GG, really thanks for your time!
