Re: Reference !<Colorspace>

Malcolm,

I don't see that the reference space should be separate in the profile. It's important, but it is just a role. Where the reference sits in the xml or yaml should matter much. Although quite a bit of effort is going into making the configuration files readable one of the goals of ocio, so I thought, was to not manually edit these files. I would imagine that there will be binary versions of configurations files not long after luts can be fully embedded.

As a personal implementation preference I would only want to implement the definition of the reference as a pointer to another colorspace.

Just my 2 cents.

-Joseph

Do you think the 'reference' colorspace should in a separate section in the profile? This would be similar to the PCS in the icc world. It could be an extra line 'reference: !<ColorSpace> ...' before the colorspaces in the profile. The 'reference' name could be reserved so that colorspace -> reference transforms could work the same.

I can see this working as roles with ROLE_REFERENCE but it really feels like a more central OCIO concept than roles and should be separated.

Also looking at the serialization with to_referance and from_referance, I'm thinking it would be easy to read if it was structured like this? what do you think?

--from--
to_reference: !<GroupTransform>
children:
- !<FileTransform> {src: "", interpolation: unknown}
- !<CineonLogToLinTransform>
max_aim_density: [2.046, 2.046, 2.046]
neg_gamma: [0.6, 0.6, 0.6]
neg_gray_reference: [0.434995, 0.434995, 0.434995]
linear_gray_reference: [0.18, 0.18, 0.18]
from_reference: !<GroupTransform>
children:
- !<ExponentTransform> {value: [1, 1, 1, 1]}
--from--
