Greetings Roger!

How do you choose the power(wattage) of light source to light the particular scene if you know that it's going to be bounced or lit through a frame with muslin,frost, grid cloth....? Do you calculate that or is it just the matter of experience?

That is mainly a matter of experience. I might look at the photometric specs of a lamp if I am unsure what level of light I will get at a certain distance and I will always consult with my gaffer.
