What is opencolorio?

I am having some issues updating via packman, I get the following error

❯ sudo pacman -Syu                                                                                                                                100%   144.4 Mbps  ─╯

Not sure what opencolorio is or if it is needed but would like to know if I should remove it or not

It looks like a dependency (for blender? is it installed?).
Blender needs older version (1) and recently there was some change for compatibility.
Check which program needs opencolorio and if you need it.
I assume the proper way to update (safely) is to answer Yes for removal of opencolorio(2), since the older version will then be installed (opencolorio1).


Thanks for that!

I just did a Timeshift backup and decided to remove it
