ACEScg Setup in Isotropix Clarisse iFX with OCIO
In the following quick guide, you will be able to setup ACES via OCIO in Clarisse very quickly.
Clarisse works with pre-converted and/or non-pre-converted (converted on the fly) image map files. You do not need to pre-convert your textures (similar to in Maya) and you gain a huge amount of time.
At the time of this screenshot, I was on 1.0.3. Do not use this version, instead, use 1.1 which can be downloaded here: https://github.com/colour-science/OpenColorIO-Configs/archive/feature/aces-1.1-config.zip
Rule of thumb:
Utility-Linear-sRGB for HDR images (.EXR or .HDR etc…)
Utility-sRGB-Texture for LDR Images (low dynamic range) such as 8bit JPG textures
Utility-RAW for linear textures: normal maps, displacement, bump, roughness etc…
