Today we are announcing the formation of a new architecture working group to focus on gamut management within the ACES system. When out of gamut colors occur in the current ACES system the default behavior is gamut clipping. This can sometimes lead to results that appear as image artifacts. This ACES Gamut Mapping Working Group will investigate and recommend improved strategies for managing out of gamut colors. The group will be Co-Chaired by Carol Payne of Netflix and Matthias Scharfenberg of Industrial Light and Magic.
We will be announcing the exact schedule for this working group soon but in the meantime, we’d love to hear your thoughts and ideas on gamut management with the ACES system, and in particular on the Working Group Proposal posted here.
This new group, as with all the recent groups will be conducted virtually using GoToMeeting for meetings, ACESCentral for discussions between meetings and the ACES Workspaces for exchanging documents, code, etc.
