    AE 13.7 color management is busted

    kaczorefx Level 1

      Apart from removing the professional video color profiles the 13.7 update seems to have busted the CMS in AE.

       

      This is a clean EXR in sRGB - no CMS:

      This is the same EXR with project color space set to Adobe RGB and linearize workspace:

      Look at the terrible banding!!!. Luckily it seems to be connected only to the viewer - rendered images don't suffer from banding, but still it used to work fine before.

       

      PS.

      After some testing the cause of this is the "Hardware Accelerate Composition" setting. If I turn it off, everything works as it should.

      So yeah, Hardware Acceleration combined with color management is a DISASTER
