So you’ve spent months trying to wrap your head around digital color spaces and have finally been dragged, kicking and screaming, but mostly screaming, into an ACES-compliant workflow. Eventually, you think you’ve finally got it, and all the colors just *look the same* regardless of which bit of software you’re using or which stage of the pipeline you’re at. Yay!
In 2021, around version 3.point.something, Redshift changed its default color space from what it called “scene-linear Rec.709-sRGB” to ACEScg. If you’re using DaVinci Resolve to muss with your newly ACES-compliant Redshift EXRs, then you need to change your color settings.
Out of the box, Davinci Resolve’s UI font and icons are so small that they are practically unreadble on small, hi res (aka high DPI) monitors. Even 1440×2560 on a 27″ screen (e.g. EIZO ColorEdge CG2730) is horrible.
Really excellent tutorial — very clear, well-paced, and with solid workflow — by Armin Lofti showing how to abuse the pyro source spread node (introduced in Houdini 18) as a quick and dirty way to drive noised infections and growth patterns, used here to grow a sheath of ice around a freezing object.
