before bothering the devs with this (feature request) I’d like to discuss the following:
After reading (and translating) this:
and beeing dealing with requests in dt user mailing list in the past few days I came to the conclusion that it might be confusing to users to have all modules presented in an unsorted way in darkroom.
With “unsorted” I understand: There are 2 groups of modules:
- those belonging to the “old workflow” (Lab)
- those recommended for the filmic workflow (linear RGB)
Even I find it confusing (and I did a lot of reading and watching Aureliens videos, so I know about the technical background) to distinguish between those modules, especially when looking at their names:
- there is filmic RGB (new)
- but on the other hand RGB levels or RGB curves which are not recommended to use in linear RGB.
I use a cheat sheet to look at when wanting to use a rarely used module - but find that not beeing handy.
I came to the conclusion that it might be a good idea to have some kind of marker/icon in the top bar of each module to signal the recommended use (new or old workflow/pixelpipe).
