Hello,

I am starting to re-learn Designer with the arrival of 1.7, and there are a few things that I didn't undertsand first time, with no improvement on understanding with the new version :)

First one is a biggie: What on earth is OpencolorIO. Mind you, I don't work in animated movies and rarely handle LUTs (although it may happen).
I checked the help files (didn't help), checked the OpenIO website (Very obscure language), and also this very forum (with a link in one thread refering to explanatory videos - link is broken on Vimeo)

I am generally fairly familiar with colour management, but fail to get the concept of OpencolorIO... It's probably that they don't use the same jargon as I am. 

Can anyone either point me to simpler language references or maybe attempt at explaining themselves? (you can even use puppet socks if all fails :) )

Thanks so much in advance!

This one is for a different application,
but it explains a lot about how and why, what to look out for, what not to do, etc.
