Has anyone upgraded their version of ACES? Flame 2018 (I know) has ACES 1.0 installed, we’ve been asked by a vendor to use ACES 1.3, which is fine on our Nuke boxes, but we want Flame to be able to join the party.
Mark here at Autodesk!
I am the Support Specialist who handled your case here.
Just to clarify, as Randy mentioned, ACES 1.1 is the current version supported by Flame 2022.1 (not 1.3).
The Academy announced ACES 1.3 in May.
Hi, Fred let me know about this thread and I would just like to add some detail on this topic.
ACES 1.3 is the current release and the only new feature it contains is a gamut compression algorithm that is useful to prevent colored lights (e.g. from a police car) from clipping in the ACES Output Transforms. There is a Matchbox script for a development version of this algorithm (there were some changes in the final version, but this gives you a close approximation) here: GitHub - jedypod/gamut-compress: Tools to compress out of gamut colors back into gamut.
ACES 1.2 added version 3 of the Common LUT Format (CLF) and the ACES Metadata File. Flame supports version 2 of CLF.
ACES 1.1 was the most recent release that introduced new color transforms and Flame has supported that for several years. So if you just need the current versions of the color transforms, Flame already has that.
