#2. "RE: Question re: DXO OpticsPro7 and LR4 Workflow"
In response to In response to 1


Cave Creek, US
          

Hi Paul - I was afraid so! No, in LR4 I am using the Camera Calibration Adobe Standard Default Profile with the new 2012 Process (current) - I set up a preset(s) on this basis with some of my "standard" adjustments. Also using the Lens Corrections Adobe Lens Profile (which is where I really seem to notice the difference with DxO), though it takes care of Chromatic Aberration quite well. Yes I do have some basic ISO specific defaults - 3 pretty basic ones to act as starting point.

I always have a back-up of my RAW files on an external drive (actually 2), but I was thinking about keeping my DXO processed files on a 3rd external drive and importing them into Lightroom when needed.

Paul, exactly what do you see as "all the compromises" of a "baked" RGB image?

The "main" attraction I see with DxO is that it provides a pretty good equipment specific (and to some extent shooting condition specific), hands-off, automatic starting point on RAW files, with very good lens and optical corrections. It seems I can get to a "good looking" image with less manipulation than in Lightroom. But now with a bit of time on my hands I am going to process a number of files side by side in the two applications and then evaluate.

Cheers,

Chris
