Color management is now an integral part of Arnold 5. In this talk we will find out what this means: what is a color space and why do we care? How are color spaces used in Arnold? What is the best way to transition from Arnold 4 to the new setup? Without forgetting to review the relevant foundations in color science, we will describe in a very practical way how the different color management settings work, and the best way to take advantage of these new capabilities in your pipeline.
