There are two mailing lists associated with OpenColorIO:
- For end users (artists, often) interested in OCIO profile design, facility color management, and workflow.
- For developers interested OCIO APIs, code integration, compilation, etc.
Most users will likely want to use the OpenColorIO that comes precompiled with their applications. See the :ref:`compatiblesoftware` for further details on each application.
Note that OCIO configurations aren't required to do any 'real' work, and are available separately on the :ref:`downloads` section of this site. Example images are also available. For assistance customizing .ocio configurations, contact the ocio-users email alias.
- Step 1: set the OCIO environment-variable to /path/to/your/profile.ocio
- Step 2: Launch supported application.
If you are on a platform that is not envvar friendly, most applications also provide a menu option to select a different OCIO configuration after launch.
Please be sure to select a profile that matches your color workflow (VFX work typically requires a different profile than animated features). If you need assistance picking a profile, email ocio-users.
