Hosted at the Academy Software Foundation, OpenColorIO is the most widely used colour management technology for VFX and animation, providing a way to robustly specify and deploy color pipelines across many tools. It has helped artists see and create accurate colors on countless films including Spider-Man™: Into the Spider-Verse, Spider-Man™: Homecoming, Hotel Transylvania 3, Ghostbusters, Alice in Wonderland, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, Surf’s Up, and Watchmen. This summer, OpenColorIO embarks on its next chapter with the release of a mighty upgrade that has been several years in the making. OpenColorIO v2 is now feature complete and will be part of the VFX Reference Platform for CY2021. This talk will provide an inside look at all the new features and capabilities:

  • vastly improved GPU and CPU rendering engines
  • built-in ACES transforms and support for the Academy/ASC Common LUT Format
  • the introduction of a display-referred reference space and support for ICC monitor profiles
  • new config features to greatly improve the user experience (UX) in applications
  • new timeline-related features
