I’m using darktable to develop RAW file for Timelapse sequences. From there I export to 16 bit TIFFs and generate a lossless (HuffYUV) video using ffmpeg for further editing.
However, the colors in the video are different from the colors in darktable, which is a color-managed view. I solved this problem by using ImageMagick’s
convert -profile my-monitor-profile.icc in.tif out.tif
(ImageMagick - Command-line Options)
After this step the color in the video look similar the colors in the picture. More comparing (viewing the pictures without color management) suggest that ffmpeg doesn’t take color management or profiles into account.
convert step takes another 15s per picture on my machine (rather considerable when you have 100’s of pictures), I’d like to solve this differently. Ideally either directly when exporting with darktable or with ffmpeg. Any ideas?
Thank you very much,
