So the bug really is with the mouse hover-over information. Rewording to something like, “Your camera DCP profile may include a tone-curve (etc), enabling this option may provide better (color) tone.” instead of the misleading currently worded, “If your camera includes a tone curve, this option is automatically enabled.” (Threw me a complete curve ball thinking I should not enable the option!) And, investing $100 for the X-Rite ColorChecker Passport including my time was obviously well worth the benefits!
I also enabled CIECAM02 per the Exposure > Tone menu mouse hover-over info, although likely provides a very slight barely noticeable difference here. (Likely mainly for larger color space monitors.) I think the major option is enabling tone curve for DCP profiles here. Makes the images’ color/tone much more realistic looking. (Without the tone curve enabled, the default image color tone looked horrid or unusable in comparison to the in-camera processed image, or required too much editing.)
I’ve put together a small Nikon (D5600) & RawTherapee “how to” on my own website with this information for other raw enthusiasts. Should save lots of time, allowing newer Nikon (D5600, etc) users to focus on using other corrections such as lens correction, etc when needed. I’ve yet to augment my page with enabling CIECAM02 (Exposure > Tone) options including this recent information, more accurate info.
RawTherapee & Nikon DSLR Cameras
You can probably save yourself the reading my how to page… as the page just duplicates what I’ve already post here within the forums. And, I’ve finally started using the photos produced from RawTherapee…
