I developed an online ACES IDT DCTL generator. It is a tool that mainly provides a function of immediate building an IDT(Input Device Transform) into a format of DCTL (Davinci Resolve Color Transform Language) based on the guide of ACES documentation, camera vendors white papers and technical specification of some color science algorithm. Its usage includes:
- Generating DCTL for trending and more diverse camera types and a combination of gamut and OETF. I understand that the ACES official provides a series of public IDT, one purpose of this tool is to provides the solution for those camera models falls outside ACES IDT official support and provides a handy and relatively accurate IDT to those who facing various of camera types in this color grading project. I would like to keep update them based on the findable camera data.
- One function could be adding more parameters in IDT for parameter tuning and color science experiment. It allows getting a deeper understanding of the relationship between different parts of the ACES system and how it works. The data of color primaries, white point and log functions of different cameras can be visualized in this tool.
- Preview of results online in web browsers by uploading DPX format picture. The ACES workflow is developed and implemented in web GLSL and working in web rendering.
- Potential flexibility of adding upcoming algorithms designed in future ACES road map (e.g. gamut mapping) for fast prototyping and testing.

It opens publicly and hopes you enjoy it.
