I have managed to get a good ACES workflow going in our small company. From ingest over compositing to grading and archival everything works pretty good.
The last missing bit in that workflow is Cinema4D. Has anyone a good solution for that?
The only way I can think of is the possibility to use custom viewing ICC profiles in the application.
So I tried to make those using OpenColorIO in Aftereffects. But whatever transform I write to a ICC profile there, delivers visually wrong results in Cinema4D.
3D-Rendering is no problem. I render OpenEXR files, which are always sRGB/linear, which can easily be matrixed to ACES AP0.
But when put through the RRT/ODT, of course, the look changes.
So I need to have a “live” viewing RRT/ODT transform for the Cinema4D editor. And that should be possible through a viewing ICC-Profile. Isn’t it?
Anyone else tried that or has some tips for me?
