ON1 2022, DNG embedded profile not used when opening
when I open DNG file from my phone it has embedded profile in the file. For some reason ON1 does not use it - and it results in this:
Left is ON1, middle is LR CC and to the right is Zoner X.
Files from phones have siginificant vignetting (which is not such a problem) but sometimes strong color vignetting (greenish corners). LR and Zoner use embedded profile and correct the image accordingly. When looking for available camera profiles in program there were only ON1 profiles(standard, landscape etc), Linear input profile - plus option Import profile (only ICC or ICM). Is there any option to compel ON1 to use embedded? Or any hint how to extract the profile from DNG for use with ON1?
RAW files, including DNG, does not have any colorspace assigned to them because there isn't any color in them. The profiles that are in them are for the jpeg previews.
When you open an image for editing in Photo RAW it applies a Camera Profile to it. That is just a LUT applied before any of your processing. The Linear RAW option tells the program to not apply the LUT and display the unprocessed RAW data after assembling it into the color image you are looking at.
Not having any Camera Profiles specific to the camera is one of the reasons I've stopped using DNGs and use the cameras native RAW files.0
This I understand - color space is different thing - a table. However in those DNGs (BTW Huawei phone) there is Camera profile embedded (describing not only how colors should be assigned globally to certain color space but even how they should be interpreted/processed based on their location in image). And this image profile is understood by LR 6 and Zoner photostudio but not by ON1. LR reports that input camera profile as Embedded. Any idea/experience with this type of info included in DNG? BTW Silkypix, Rawtherapee or Topaz studio do not understand it either.0
This is a question for tech support and the engineers, sorry. I don't know any more that what I've already said.
There is a lot of leeway in what the camera manufactures can put into their EXIF data. When they start doing non-standard things it requires custom code in all the different RAW processing programs to handle that custom data. Not all software companies will be willing to put in the resources to handle each and every one-off thing like this.
There are other discussions on both these forums and, if you're a member, the Plus forums, that discuss the program's handling of EXIF data that you might want to look up.0
Thanks - I contacted Tech Support0
Vladislav -- did you get a response from Tech Support? If so, can you share?0
Well it is a year from now - if I remember well they confirmed that they will look into in next versions. Was not resolved in 2023. I had to make my own preset to solve the processing - which works OK. Still surprisingly - some (even old) software has not problem - unlike ON1.0
