I have an excessive contrast issue with some films.
Fuji velvia from DxO Film Pack, applied in PL3 (which is a very high contrast transparent film in real life)
Kodak Porta 400 from DxO Film Pack, applied in PL3 (which is medium contrast negative film in real life, being negative film it has a more gentle roll-off in highlight and is well know for very smooth skin tones):
Excessive contrast, skin highlights completley blown, contrast very harsh in the skin tones!
Correcting exposure or contrast doesn’t solve the issue.
Reducing color rendering intensity reduces the problem, but the charactestics Porta 400 look is gone well being skin tones don’t exhibit anymore that harsh contrast.
Real-life Portra 400 doesn’t look like this at all…
DxO Photo Lab v3.2.0 build 4344
DxO Film Pack Elite v.5.5.25
Many thanks for your help.
