Sorry, using version CC, and yes, I'm putting it on an adjustment layer. I know what you're saying about 16 235, but beside it looking pretty awful, that puts the waveform pretty far down in general.

Best way to send reframing information to colorist?

Unless it's more than a 120% blow up (that would be an HD file being blown up in the flame), it's better that the flame artist handles it. That's my rule of thumb, anyway.
