**My context: Ubuntu 20.04, Darktable 3.4.1. In preferences --> processing I selected “scene-referred” and “modern”
I would like to prepare an ICC file to profile my camera sensor by means of xrite Colorchecker Passport.
Therefore I read the article of Andreas Schneider on this subject (updated on: 2019-06-18) in
with extreme deliberation but… I’m somewhat lost.
In the mentioned article Andreas says:
You then open the RAW file in darktable and disable the base curve and all other modules which might be applied automatically! You can leave the Orientation module turned on. Select the standard input matrix in the input color profile module and disable gamut clipping. Make sure “camera white balance” in the white balance module is selected. If lens corrections are automatically applied to your JPEG files, you need to enable lens corrections for your RAW files too! Only apply what has been applied to the JPEG file too.
For my configuration I was left with the following modules enabled:
Output Color Profile
Input Color Profile
Lens Correction (Optional)
Crop & Rotate (Optional)
Raw Black/White Point
Instead my ‘beloved’ configuration (options “scene-referred” and “modern”) automatically starts both “White Balance” and “Color calibration” modules which are designed to work together, the output of the former being the input of the latter (I know that, as explained by Aurelién Pierre in his article, it is possible to deactivate the “Color calibration” module and only use the “White balance” module in the old way. But this for me could be only an exception not the rule).
To put it in a nutshell, my question is: to create the ICC file according to Andreas’ procedure am I supposed to enable the “Color calibration” module adding it to the modules listed by Andreas?
