Hi, I am fairly new to working with OCIOv2 and OCIO in general. And after a few ACES test runs, I am
- confused with some of the terminology used,
- unsure if my DCC is behaving correctly with regards to the config file I am using, and
- unsure if my workflow is correct.
DCC: Fusion Studio (Standalone) ver18.1.1
OCIO config file: studio-config-v1.0.0_aces-v1.3_ocio-v2.1.ocio
Note: I installed the OCIO config file via my systems environment variables. The OCIO config is getting detected by all my DCC tools.
Fusion Node: OCIO Color Space (OCC)
The default behavior for the input and output space is „ACES2065-1“, which seems to be following the OCIO config „file_rules“. – did I get that right?
OCC Node available dropdown menu options:
Are these the expected, selectable dropdown options I should be seeing or is something wrong/ missing? Except for „Raw“ all of the „utility colorspaces“ that were mentioned on Github are missing.
OCIO Colorspace ViewLUT Options:
Similiar to the previous question, are these the options I should be seeing or is something wrong here? Based on the OCIO config’s „shared_views“, I was expecting something like: „ACES 1.0 – SDR Video“ or „Un-tone-mapped“ to be selectable for the ViewLUT, but I am getting the exact same dropdown list that I am getting with the OCC node.
Basic „appropriate“ Workflow:
As far as I can tell, it does not make a difference (code value-wise), if I am converting from camera space to ACEScg directly, instead of going to ACES2065-1 first and then to ACEScg. Does the latter approach make a difference and if so, is the latter one preferred?
Which output transform is the correct one:
If the available dropdown options from the OCC node are indeed the correct ones, then which should I select if I wanted to go from ACEScg as the linear working space to an output space like sRGB/2.2 or BT.1886/2.4 with the OCC node?
“Camera.709” does not make sense, as it is described as an OETF in the config file.
“Gamma 2.2 sRGB - Texture” does not seem to be an option either, as I thought these were reserved for textures only.
Thanks in advance to everyone who is trying to help.
