The anticipated Academy Color Encoding System (ACES) has finally been released.
As AbelCine explains, “ACES is a device-independent color management and image exchange format. This system has the ability to preserve the full range of highlights, shadows, colors, and latitude that was created by the cinematographer. This will change for the better how cinematographers can ensure their creative touch is maintained the whole way through the production pipeline. Regardless of the edit platform, the post-production system, the VFX software, the presentation platform, the master format, or the methods of different companies that touched their image during the process, the cinematographer can be assured that the final image will hold true to their original vision.”
