Hey guys… Here at my company we’re planning to implement Nuke (switching from AE and Fusion) and ACES on our workflow. So the ACES workflow (from what I’ve learned) starts at our Colorist who receives the camera footage and does some color correction using DaVinci Resolve with the following settings:
- Color Science ACESCC
- ACES VERSION 1.0.3
- ACES IDT - The camera’s colorspace (i.e. RED DRAGON GAMMA)
- ACES ODT - The monitor’s colorspace (i.e. sRGB)
Then when he finishes his work, he exports that footage with color correction with the ODT set to No input transform (equivalent to ACES 2065-1) to EXR float files.
Then the VFX department uses that footage for compositing work using Nuke with the following settings:
Color Management - OCIO
OCIO Config - ACES 1.0.3
Working Space - ACEScg
Monitor - Whatever they are calibrated to (i.e. sRGB)
8-Bit Files - No idea what to put here*
16-Bit Files - No idea what to put here*
Log Files - No idea what to put here*
Float Files - No idea what to put here*
*please help me
When we import the footage the Read Node has the colorspace ACES 2065-1 (which was used when exporting from Resolve).
When we finish compositing the Write Node is set to render EXR’s with the ACES 2065-1 colorscape.
This workflow will probably be terribly wrong but from what I’ve read this is what I have understood so far. Can anyone please help me tell me if this is the correct workflow or not and if not what am I doing/thinking wrong?
Any help would be deeply appreciated. Thanks in advance.
