Introduction


ACES in Photoshop


ACES in After Effects


Step 1

Start off by ensuring that your Project Settings are setup correctly with a 32bpc Depth and ACEScg as the Working Space.


ACES in Nuke


Step 1

Navigate to the Color tab of your Nuke Project settings. 

Step 2

Set your "Color Management" to OCIO.

Step 3

Set the "OCIO config" to an ACES configuration or provide the path of your own custom OCIO config.

Step 4

Your Read nodes for ACES footage should already be setup with the correct color space of scene linear as pictured below.

Step 5

Set your Viewer to the correct output display transform that corresponds with the display you are using to view your work on.


ACES in Resolve

There are multiple ways to add an ACES transform to footage in Resolve, the most common methods are covered below.

ACES via Edit Page in Resolve


Step 1

Start by adding your ACES footage to a timeline and switching to the Edit page.

Step 2

Then add an ACES Transform effect to your footage found under the Open FX > Resolve FX Color section.

Step 3

Next switch to the Effects tab so you can access the ACES Transform options.

Step 4

Then set your ACES version, Input Transform to "CSC - ACEScg" and Output Transform to the color space corresponding to the monitor you are working on, in most cases sRGB.


Step 5

Now your footage is setup properly.

Note: In the demonstration images below the display being worked on used a color space of P3-D65 so the Output Transform was set to that instead of the more common sRGB.

ACES in Fusion


Step 1

With your footage imported via a Loader create an OCIO Colorspace node downstream from your footage. This effect can be found under the Tools > Color section.

Step 2

First specify the location of your OCIO Config file.

Step 3

Then set your Source Space to "ACEScg" and Output Space to the color space corresponding to the monitor you are working on, in most cases sRGB.


Step 4

Now your footage is setup properly.

Note: In the demonstration images below the display being worked on used a color space of P3-D65 so the Output Transform was set to that instead of the more common sRGB.

ACES in Affinity Photo / Designer / Publisher


Step 1

Before you begin working you must first specific your OCIO config path by opening the Affinity Preferences > Color section.



Step 2

Then press the "Select..." button and navigate to and select your OCIO config file. A restart of the program may be required after this step.

Step 3

Next open your footage and add an Adjustment by clicking the button located at the bottom of the Layers panel circled below...

Step 4

...and select the OCIO adjustment.

Step 5

Then set your Source Color Space (IDT) to "ACEScg" and Destination Color Space (ODT) to the color space corresponding to the monitor you are working on, in most cases sRGB.

Step 6

Next add a Levels adjustment and apply a Gamma adjustment of 2. 

This step is necessary because Affinity applies a double gamma correction. Without this manual gamma adjustment your footage will export incorrectly and not match your view while working inside Affinity.


Step 7

Now your footage is setup properly.
