After years of research and development, the Academy Color Encoding System is becoming the standard for color management and image interchange for motion pictures, television, commercials and other forms of professional content. The Post New York Alliance & the Visual Effects Society New York, in cooperation with the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will present an ACES 1.0 post and VFX pipeline primer July 16 at seven o’clock at The School of Visual Arts Theatre in Manhattan.
This session will deliver an overview of the engineering and science as well as practical information needed to understand and implement ACES into postproduction and VFX pipelines.
ACES enables DPs and directors to better preserve their creative intent from on-set monitoring and look management, to dailies, editorial, VFX, the DI and on into archiving. It does this by addressing the long-standing color management issues facing today’s productions. ACES expands the creative palette with its high dynamic range and wide color gamut capabilities while streamlining collaboration with standardized encodings and file formats.
Alex Forsythe, Academy technical lead on the ACES project, is traveling to New York to speak about the development of, and latest innovations in, ACES and how it helps color management and workflows. His presentation will be followed by a discussion about practical, real world implications with several key members of the New York post-production and VFX community. Hear how ACES is being implemented with today’s tools on-set and at leading facilities in VFX, post and mastering.
The School of Visual Arts is located at 333 West 23rd Street in New York. Seating is limited so please RSVP to [email protected] to reserve your place. PNYA & VES members are free- $10 non members
