We are happy to announce the release of ACES 1.3.
It includes new features and enhancements that fulfill the ACES 1.0 vision and sets the stage for ACES 2.0 development.
Key new features and enhancements include:
– A new gamut compression algorithm to deal with the “blue fringe problem” some users experienced with extremely bright saturated objects (e.g. brightly colored LED lights).
– A minor update to the ACES Metadata File (AMF) to make it more flexible for production workflows.
– A color space conversion transforms (ACEScsc) for supporting the Sony Venice
– Minor bug fixes and documentation improvements (including moving the documentation to its own git repo for more development flexibility)
Releases of the ACES reference implementation are primarily targeted to ACES Product Partners and other manufacturers. To enjoy these new benefits, end-users should request that their preferred production and postproduction tools integrate these new features and fixes, as quickly as possible.
