How to Set ACES Renders in After Effects, Nuke and Photoshop

Johnny Fehr shows how your 3D ACES renders can look the same in After Effects and Nuke as they did where you made them.

If you do not see the same result for your renders in applications like After Effects, Nuke or Photoshop, check out this new tutorial from Johnny Fehr.
