I’m new to darktable and am trying to use it in a consistent way. When I open a RAW file, I want to see what the camera provides, but there are some modules that are switched on that adjust the image before I do anything. (Note: I am the ‘scene-referred workflow’, set in the Modules panel in ‘darkroom’ mode).
For example, filmic is on by default. I don’t want this to happen. I switched it and others off. It looks like there are 4 modules that must be on at a minimum (output color profile, input color profile, demosaic, raw black/white point). These cannot be deactivated or switched off. Also, white balance must be on for the image to look ‘as-shot’. I want this to be the default condition when opening a new image.
But, when I open another image, modules like filmic, sharpen and highlight reconstruction are switched on, so some corrections are automatically applied. I want to avoid this.
I tried creating a custom module layout, but there is no way to change the on/off status of the modules. I understand that modules like filmic are inherent in the ‘scene-referred workflow’, but do they have to be on by default?
