Hi,

I was just wondering if dealing with media sources from various color profiles, S-Log, V-Log, sRGB, etc to all be composited, would it be "standard" or at least a common workflow to:

  1. Set Working Space to : Rec.709 Gamma 2.4,
  2. 'Check' Linearize Working Space
  3. For each clip: Interpret Footage -> Assign Profile and pick whatever Log/profile the footage/media is in
  4. Do the compositing
  5. Pick an Output Profile: In my case I picked V-Log for grading in my color grading app, since most of the clips were V-Log

    The final render would and should look like a flat V-Log composite, correct?

Is this workflow correct for the desired output?

Are there any other workflows or steps to consider for just a BASIC composite like this?

 

Thank you!!

I have not found the proper link for Linearize Working Space. The key word would be OpenColor IO (OCIO) and ACES. You check these words with After Effects.

The location is Project Settings -> Color -> Linearize Working Space, it will be grayed uout when Working Space is set not 'None'.

Not sur what you're realyl asking. Seems you've figured out your workflow already. Arguably you could forego some footage interpretation steps on some footage types depending on what color space you use, but that's pretty much the only "optimization" and simplification. With log/ Cineon sources you don't have much choice, though.
