Mailing lists

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.

Using OpenColorIO

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.

Downloading and building the code

Source code is available on Github at

Download a .zip or .tar.gz of the current state of the repository.
