(White Plains, NY--November 4, 2016) The Academy Color Encoding System (ACES) is a complete framework for digital color representation, reproduction, processing, distribution, and archival mainly aimed to theatrical, TV, and animation features. Current major version 1.0 has been recently released and introduces new concepts and methodologies. In this webcast a review of current ACES terminology, color-science and workflows will be presented for both novice audiences as well as those already acquainted with pre-release ACES. Then, beginning with the author's real-world experience, a description of an ACES use-case for theatrical production will be discussed from on-set, to postproduction and visual effects (VFX), to delivery.

SMPTE Educational Webcasts are free to SMPTE Members.
