I’ve been using Darktable for a couple of months now, but I just recently got a new Fuji X-H1. I read up about using the x-trans sensor and started taking some test shots. I ran into an issue where the colors were giving me a lot of trouble.
Here is the OOC JPEG. Lowlight shot, handheld
Next is my first edit, using the standard color matrix profile. Exposure and contrast are lower, but notice his white fur. It’s green on one side and purple on the other.

Searching here I found a thread that mentioned using Rec709, but not why. After some experimentation with input profiles I got my second edit using the “linear Rec2020 RGB” profile.

This edit seems much better to me, but I’m not sure when I should use which profile. Should I always use Rec2020?
Finally the raw file:
