Scene-linear Workflow/ACES

Scene-linear Workflow/ACES are useful technique and standards for VFX, a complex combination of live-action and computer graphics. Our aim is oriented to the next generation video production centers on ACES such as the pursuit of visual effects. For that purpose we promote, inspect and feedback of Scene-linear Workflow/ACES.

Summary of the Project:

Scene-linear Workflow is a video production technique which based on the physical characteristic of light. It is a accumulation of know-how which has been developed in Hollywood for many years. It is highly effective instead of traditional workflow by films or video encoding in VFX production, a complex combination of live-action plate and computer graphics. Scene-linear Workflow is based on luminance of real world. The framework for Scene-linear Workflow is Academy Color Encoding System (ACES). Logoscope has been attempted to verify the effect of ACES on video production and promote ACES in Japan since its birth in 2012.

By introducing Scene-linear Workflow, dramatic improvement of video quality and cost reduction derived from the shortening of production man-hours are expected. And also, Scene-linear data will be the function of a common language to cinematographers, lighting designer, colorist, compositors and CG artists. Thus, it will bring the smooth production process. It is another big advantage of Scene-linear workflow. Furthermore, the more lively visual effects will be possible when Scene-linear data is used as foundations, and effects which are based on the sensibility or feeling of specialist of video production is added there.

In this project we will develop various activities such as promotion of Scene-linear Workflow/ACES in Japan. For that purpose, we will provide basic information about Scene-linear Workflow/ACES, inspection and feedback of them, pursuit of creativity and visual effects as further application. Through these activities, we are oriented to the next generation video production and interactive contents production.
