FilmPack filter set doesn't work with a DCP profile in PhotoLab 2

(Greg) #1

Hello. Recently, I’ve started using DCP profiles for my Olympus E-M1 Mark II camera. I use the ones from Adobe Camera Raw, imported into PhotoLab’s Color rendering module. (e.g., Category: DCP profile / Rendering: Olympus E-M1 Mark II Camera Natural.dcp) I’ve just discovered that when I do this, the FilmPack 5 “Filter” module has no effect. Style - Toning, the Channel mixer, Creative vignetting, and other FIlmPack modules in PhotoLab 2 that I’ve tried still work. I’m at a loss here. Is this a bug?

To be clear: as soon as I turn off Color rendering or set it to something else like Generic, the Filter I’ve selected takes effect. Turn on the DCP profile again and the filter has no effect.

Hello Greg!

Thank you for the report. We’ll do an investigation.

I can confirm that one limitation of using DCP profiles in Photolab2 is that you can’t combine them with the Filter module to add colouring tints (e.g. cooling or warming). But I can use Style toning together with a DCP input profile.

Another limitation is the Black Level Subtraction bug.
