ACES within Cinema 4D

Hi Guys. Can anyone help with a quick ACES question? I've followed the general workflow guidance here:

https://docs.arnoldrenderer.com/display/A5AFCUG/ACES+Workflow


... what I'm not clear about is whether or not you have to convert texture images on the materials? Or is that all taken clear of?

This may be of some help in general with ACES.

You have to specify the color space of the given texture in the image shader. (auto means sRGB for 8bit images, render space for float images) Then Arnold converts them to the render color space, you don't have to do anything else.

Typically that is handled when you convert to TX. The textures are converted to the Render Color Space

Right @ ?
