Sorry for this basic question, but I could not find conclusive information about this: Is there any distinct advantage to work in an ACES workflow within DaVinci Resolve (from edit to final output) with footage that is 98% Rec709? I’m doing a feature doc edit with tons of older footage.
I understand the advantage of combining different color spaces from different sources in ACES, and I understand why a large gamut would be good for “modern” (log, raw, etc) footage. None of this helps for Rec709. But is the “future proofing” still applicable? Will the larger gamut yield better results in the grading (as more color is available in grading)? And, does an ACES workflow give an advantage in flexibility of deliverables (vs, say, a “regular” Davinci YRGB color space) when outputting to different color spaces such as P3, etc?
ACES creates a lot of headaches in the Fusion page. I wonder if it is worth it for my project.
Thanks so much, and all the best
