Color Correction with X-Rite Colorchecker Passport

Recommended Posts

The ColorTRUE SDK seems to be for display calibration on mobile devices https://xritephoto.com/colortrueSDK

Adobe does publish a manual for tool to edit DNG profiles mentioning a dependance on X-rite color chart https://www.adobe.com/content/dam/acom/en/products/photoshop/pdfs/cs6/DNGProfile_EditorDocumentation.pdf

X-Rite also publishes a manual for a tool to create DNG Profiles https://www.xrite.com/service-support/creating_dng_profiles_for_adobe_camera_raw

I think the confusion stems from ColorChecker being the name of both a physical colorchart and a software application to do color correction using the chart.

It was my impression that the request by OP was for software support in Affinity for the physical device, not for the software solution wih th same name, my apologies if this assumption was in error.

Looks like xRite is branching out away from only Adobe and building software for creating ICC Profiles. Would be nice if they would produce LUTs as well as ICC Profiles ...

Using X-rite Colorchecker passport to create custom camera profiles and light source profiles for raws for Affinity can't be that hard. It's been possible with Photo Ninja raw converter for years and Photo Ninja's just a two-person outfit. No DNGs involved. It's the main reason I haven't switched to Affinity.

Dam I just ordered a spyderCHECKER 24 simply assuming that either the software it came with would provide me with something of use or that whatever the spyderCHECKER software outputted would be of use in Affinity Photo. But as it stands it looks like I have a $80 paint chip card. I have to be honest I have been very happy with Serif. I own Photo, Designer and a few brush packs as well. I am about half way through buying all the products at this point. This to me seems like such a absolute necessity in order to be taken seriously at all that the fact that it has not been implemented in some way is completely baffling. But not only has it not been implemented the thread of people requesting it have been completely ignored. Anyone in the "pro world" would take one read through that thread and forget about Serif for a good while I would think. 

I don't see how something like Picture to LUT would be accurate enough to trust batch processing whole sets of photos through. It is one thing to use it to produce cool film color renditions but to go for absolute accuracy in color that just seems very iffy.

Serif please please please take a person off your Puplisher project and implement this. While I hope you guys work on this I will shoot Dattacolor an email asking them to stop kissing Adobies ass and have there software output a dam LUT so the non Adobe section of the world can actually get some use out of there products.

AiDion pointed me in the right direction in another thread and after some learning I now understand how to get calibrated colour in Affinity Photo. Not as smooth as I would like but now that I know the steps it does not take long. I posted my process here if anyone is interested. 

Thanks AiDion for pointing out the Beta x-rite software. It seems like the best way to do it.
