I first head of ACES about 2012 and I got interested in the topic. There was no software support, no finished release of ACES and honestly no idea why I should need it.
In the last 1-2 years the interest grew further, a lot of learning and testing was neccesary to get the whole concept behind it. Thanks to FXPHD, Charles Poynton and INFECTED for helping learning and continue learning every day.
Now we use ACES in production.
On the following pages I want to present some steps for helping understanding ACES that I worked through in the last years with a great help of Sönke Heuer and INFECTED and Alexander de Lukowicz.
This is „Learning ACES“ with Nuke, Flame, Resolve, Blender, Maya and Affinity Photo.
