Good day all
I'm working on some edtis, mixing pre-edited footage (Pro Res) and footage I filmed (on a Canon 600D).
I use the technicolor setting for colour on the camera, and then correct in post with an S curve.
The Canon shoots cRGB, if I am reading everything correcly? And Vegas Pro 12 shows the preview in sRGB?
So, as part of my workflow, I need to convert my footage to sRGB before rendering out.
However, Vegas 12 now uses the ACES colour space. Do I need to set this? If so, do I set this at project level, or on a per-clip basis? The project is set to 8 bit pixel format while doing the initial editing, and it's been suggested I put this to 32 bit. Would I use 32 bit video or 32 bit full here?
There is a ton of information about on some of these topics, but none that covers the ACES colour space, and mixing everything together.
Any pointers, or comments greatly welcomed

I was confusing myself with the sRGB and cRGB colour spaces, and although I'm sure I had my head around that (and avoiding washed out blacks on the end product), I wasn't sure what to do with the new ACES system that Vegas 12 has (there isn't a lot of info on it in the manual either).
Hopefully there will be some up at a stage, or Sony will do a webinar on it.
The 600D doesn't support S-log except for MagicLantern HDR. The ML HDR has to be processed by a utility app and split out into two tracks first. Something like that.
Thank you Budwzr
I do not have ML on my camera as yet (Canon South Africa doesn't seem to understand what it is). All I am using is the technicolor image preset when filming.
That clears up a lot of my confusion
