We’re currently looking into if there’s any benefit of shooting RAW with the ARRI Alexa camera in an ACES workflow compared to using Prores 4444 XQ (in AWG/LogC).
Basically, do we get any extra color information by using RAW and “developing” directly into ACES instead of converting the Prores files into ACES colorspace?
Has anyone done any tests with this? I assume there’s no extra information, as it would be kind of strange if ARRI didn’t use the full potential of the sensor with it’s own colorspace?
- From what I remember you can’t shoot directly in ACES colorspace when using Prores.
