Is it possible to tell Rawtherapee to not use any predefined camera constants when opening DNG files?
Rawtherapee never opened the demosaiced-DNG files (linear DNG?) nicely that DxO Optics Pro / Photolab writes. It has a strong colorcast that you never quite can fix.
Recently Filmulator (which opened the DNG files just fine) made a change to use ‘camconst data from RT’, and suddenly the DNG files were starting to show the same problems.
After comparing looking at metadata and testing around, I noticed I can make RT to open the DNG files OK (or at least massively better) by using exiftool to write a BlackLevel metadata-header to ‘0 0 0’.
So, it’s only ‘annoying’ that I have to process the DNG files through another tool to make RT open them OK (while programs like Darktable, Filmulator, On1 PhotoRaw, ACDSee Photo Studio and more all open them fine. Heck, even dcraw works fine :)). But that annoyance is often enough for me to not try Rawtherapee anymore, which is a shame.
Is there an easy setting I can make somewhere to make Rawtherapee ignore the values in camconst.json when opening DNG files? Or opening the files while holding down a key or something.
