shoot>data>post: ACES in 10 Minutes

“Lately I’ve been taking a hard look at the Academy Color Encoding System aka ACES and trying to wrap my head around it. There are a handful of decent white papers on the topic but they tend to be overly technical. Through pulling tidbits from multiple sources, one can come to a decent understanding of the how’s and why’s of ACES but I was hoping to find some kind of an overview; something that presented the “need to knows” in a logical and concise way and wouldn’t require a big time commitment to understand. I did not find such a resource so I’m writing it myself.”
