I’m currently and recently in charge of the color pipeline in our Studio. I’m reading the forum for a long now to figure out what ACES workflow could improve for us. Did a lot of tests with some CG DCC, and the results look really great.
Here’s why I’ posting here : I read a lot about Rec709/BT1886 TRC, not an easy thing ! From what I read, the final Rec709 TRC inside ACES is gamma 2.4. Right ? I heard that on a BT1886 calibrated display, the resulting gamma is about 2.2, due to black level correction (assuming it’s not perfect). So, is the ACES-Rec709 output transform the correct choice in this case (at lighting/compositing stage, I mean) ?
Another thing that’s not clear for me, if I decide to create a digital media content for HDTV, what’s the best output transform to choose before encoding ?
