I’m playing around with the DCP profiles created by Adielle in dpreview forum (https://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/4333279 and I’m having some issues. I’ve also created myself a dcp profile (using the RAW files from the dpreview studio scene for my Olympus E-M10.2 and the Adobe DNG Converter and the Adobe DNG Profile Editor) and I have the same issue with this dcp profile:
Applying one of the DCP in Photolab 2 to an image having a rather large dynamic range, I notice a lot of clipping.
What I do is:
- Open the raw image in PL2
- Apply the “no correction” preset
- Select and apply the dcp file.
Using any of the standard camera profiles shipped with PL (generic camera rendering, neutral etc) I do not see clipping, but selecting any of the dcp profiles (I also tried the Huelight profiles) I notice the clipping.
I then used the dcp2icc tool to convert the dcp profiles to icc. On importing these, PL asks me whether the ICC profile has been created usinga linear or a realsitic reference. I tried both: with the linear option, I get correct colors, but the image is way too dark (histogram is very narrow and concentrated on the left half). With the realistic option, the histogram is also quite narrow, but now concentrated on the right half, giving completely wrong colors.
As this happens with all DCP profiles I tried, is there maybe something wrong with the handling of these profiles in Photolab? FYI: I’m using the latest version of Photolab.
If it’s not a bug in Photolab: what could be the issue?
