I am a feature film vfx compositor who uses Nuke all day, and I’ve been playing around with a linear to light color pipeline using open source software on linux in my spare time.
I’ve recently been playing with Natron and am pretty impressed with the new features and OCIO implementation.
There’s one thing I can’t figure out though, and wanted to ask the knowledgeable community here if it is possible or not.
Say I have a linear exr source image, and I want to continue to work in linear, but display my work in the viewer through a complex color transform, for example a OCIODisplay node set to the reference rendering transform: rrt_srgb.
I can set my read node to Output Colorspace “display/rrt_srgb” but this defeats the whole point of a linear workflow, since I would be converting my linear image into a tonemapped image before starting work on it.
Is there any equivalent in Natron to the VIEWER_INPUT process in Nuke? Can I use a node to modify the colors displayed in the viewer? Or is it really only possible to view the linear image data in natron through a naive sRGB or rec709 lookup?
Thanks for your help!
