I don't seem to be able to bring my filmic EXR to nuke without a shift in brightness or gamma. I'm rendering half (16 bit) and tried to import them in nuke as log. Do I need to customize my projects color settings in nuke? Or do I linearize the filmic log data in blender and import the EXRs linear in nuke? I did my shading without any LUT (basic contrast, ...).

I have tried different input color spaces in the readnode of nuke and I tried to load the filmic config.ocio into nukes OCIO settings, both without any success. The resulting image always looks clamped and blown out.


Maximeroz has made available filmic config.ocio files for Nuke and also an explanation on how to set it up:-




It is dated July and November 2017, so I don't know how current the information is.

There is also a config for Maya.
