I’m using Darktable 3.0 I compiled from source a few days ago.
There is a lot to like.
I am having trouble with filmic rgb
When I click this module on the default values are typically quite different than the image as it was at that point in my work flow. One way to learn the ins and outs of a new module is to fiddle with it until the current image more or less matches the appearance of that image before the module in question was started. At that point you might smile and then fiddle a bit more in order to make improvements.
On some images I’ve been able to do that. On other images I find it essentially impossible.
Does a theoretic explanation for what this module actually does help to understand it? Or is it expected that (sometimes) filmic cannot be used to recreate the pre-filmic appearance?
