Mantra doesn't render in ACES?

Recommended Posts

If all the inputs to Mantra are in ACES, Mantra output is in ACES also. If your color parms and textures are correctly adjusted, you are fine.

I read in SideFX docs: https://www.sidefx.com/docs/houdini/io/ocio.html

"Renders from Mantra are in linear space."

So no ACES in the rendered EXRs?

like all render engines. all renderer calculates in linear space. there should never baked ACES-colorspace in exr lfiles. exr should always linear for maximum color range control.
you should learn about the linear workflow concept

aces is a fancy way to compress dark areas more so have more color range bright areas to able to display on your screen. if the new apple display for example your got lot better color range then ACES.

ACES = a way to squeeze color values as much as possible from a linear to a rec19 space (colorspace of computer displays).
