MultiPass Compositing In After Effects

Recommended Posts



Multi-pass Ae Compositing question.


I have C4D sequences from different passes in Ae that were done in linear+sRGB .

to get the same appearance in Ae I know I could:
1. work color managed in Ae - set it to linear and sRGB.
2. use color profile converter on my passes.

but got a question about 2 - the color profile converter option. I see that if I use it on the composite of my passes (adj layer or precomp) it works fine. but it doesn't do the same if I apply it to each pass separately... the thing that confuses me is that here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xj5dSj8vELk on 08:17 he shows how he applies CPC on each of the passes, whereas in my composition, it only works if I apply it to the composite. so... should you apply CPC on the composite only? or is there a way to use it on each pass separately?

Didn't watch the youtube link, but typically I would do option 1.  I think you defeat the purpose of the Linear workflow by doing option 2.  Search Greyscalegorilla.com for a tutorial on Linear workflow.
