Can we add more IDTs and ODTs? For example: I use the P3-DCI and REC709 (d60sim) ODTs allot. But I don’t see them in the list. Am I missing something?
They’re not there, but they can be added in a future update. (They are already included in the DCTL collection though).
I tried building a custom ODT but the Results are “not the same”. For example tried to do a 709 D60sim ODT but the result was not the same as the one within Resolve.
This is probably due to an error on my part when translating the CTLs. It requires further testing, and input from those who contributed to the original code, to fix it.
Can we use parts of this plugin while ACES is activated in Resolve?
Yes, it can be used while ACES is activated. When ACES is activated , the process (usually) in Resolve is IDT to AP0 Linear, then AP0 Linear to ACEScc or ACEScct (depending on which one is selected in settings), then at the end of the pipeline is ACEScc or ACEScct to AP0 Linear, then AP0 Linear to RRT+ODT. You can select no Input and/or Output Transform in the settings, but this removes only the IDT or RRT+ODT transform. There will always be a AP0 Linear to ACEScc or ACEScct transform at the beginning and an ACEScc or ACEScct to AP0 Linear at the end when ACES is activated. There are options in the plugin that convert to and from ACEScc or ACEScct so that you can work in AP0 Linear (and avail of the LMT options).
If you want to to use a custom ODT instead of the built in Resolve options, then select No Output Transform in settings, and either with another iteration of the plugin or a DCTL apply an ACES to ACEScc or ACEScct transform to the last node, which will counter the mandatory ACEScc or ACEScct to AP0 Linear transform.
