Hi everyone! I know there are a lot of threads discussing the workflow in ACES with nuke, believe me, I’ve done some reading but I haven’t been able to find the answer.
We’re a medium sized studio in Colombia, we’re implementing ACES in all our workflows and the interactions between VFX and color grading has been painstaking. here’s our typical workflow.
We’re shooting in siny F55 cameras, SLog3 and the compression is Xabc
VFX receives EXR sequences from editing, we would typically receive the sequences and read them as SRGB. But now in this workflow, from what I’ve read, we shoud receive the EXR sequences as Linear and read them as such. then we do our work and the render output should be the same as our input. All our cg work is rendered in multchannel EXR sequences using Maya’s OCIO ACEScg workflow. and our stock footage that usually comes as srgb should be graded to fit in the ACES much wider gamut.
My main issue is that the colorist sugest we should get the clips as ACEScct, but when doing so, we get a very weird color when reading it in Nuke, and almost all of our stock footage has to be shifted in color to get the integration to that weird color.
Please, any help would be much more than appreciated! Thanks everyone in advance
