I’m quite new in ACES world and I have a lot to learn for sure. But I have already had that awkward feeling when working for an sRGB ODT. Somehow it feels sometimes I’m fighting, inside Davinci Resolve, against the harder contrast the RRT+ODT impose, specially in dark scenes…
Things get clearer when you see what’s going on on a grey ramp’s waveform.
I guess we should get used to it and learn how to deal with it, shot by shot. But meanwhile I found this workaround:
I use two nodes with AcesTransform OFX, the first converting ACEScct to Rec709, and the second one converting sRGB to ACEScct. I’ve found this way I can rectify the curve and also get the possibility of putting a node between them to make some primary grading in davinci’s normal behavior (although I don’t know if that is such a good idea…).
Wether this method messes the image up in any destructive way or not, I cannot tell yet. So far is working fine. But you tell me if I’m doing something wrong and I’m not seeing it.
