Hello.  Am working in AE 23.3.0 and as of today, am finding my working Colour Space in the Comp Window is not matching Visually what it should be, what it looked like yesterday, and what the renders look like.  A restart of computer did not fix.
Please help... its very hard to work with such a disconnect.  Picture of settings attached.  And pictures of visual problem attached.

When OCIO is enabled, there should be a drop down in the Composition Preview window that lets you adjust the Color Space being viewed. Check that drop down is set correctly.

Thanks for that! 
Though all settings were the same as they had been, when I switched the drop down menu (located at bottom of Comp Window), from "ACES/Rec709" to something else, then switched back, the viewer corrected itself.
So still a bug, but thanks for an idea on how to temporarily fix it.
Shine on you crazy diamond!

we've had issues when switching between viewing colour spaces, rec709 looks correct, switch to srgb, then BACK to 709 and now it looks wrong... i've got a sneaky feeling the viewer lookup isn't working very consistently..

Definitely still a bug though... I just closed and reopened project, and Colour space had shifted again....

definitely a bug... and a scary one when we're trying to comp color sensitive projects!

i had hoped the OCIO implementation would save me having to faff around with plugins and adjustment layers, looks like i might have to go back to the old method of aces/colorspace management until this gets fixed

It would be very helpful if you could post a screen recording of your steps —from Project Settings, Footage Import, Interpret Footage, New Comp from Footage, Setting the Comp display color space.

Then save, close, re-open project, and (if footage color display is incorrect), change Comp display color space to something else, then back again.


Also, would probably be good to update to AE 23.4.

Thx!
