Termux sounds like fun but I am not brave enough to put it on my Android
phone ! It would probably work well on this old bigger tablet that never
gets used.

Thanks for the hint which I will pass along.  This bug as presented in the
Title plugin does not exist in HV 7.2; but the same bug that shows up in
the Dissolve transition does not show up in 7.2 because the Dissolve does
not even work there at all for the test case. The bug has been in CinGG
since at least March 2016 -- that is as far as I have gone back.

Not as far as I know, but I will put the histogram files on our website
later today so you can read them there.  I had made mods to ours to get the
luma in and it kind of works, but not always and I have no idea if it works
