I only convert to DNG when I want to open a ColorChecker Passport shot in the X-Rite software, or Adobe DNG Profile Editor.


Can the ColorChecker DNG Profile created with the X-Rite software be applied to a raw file in adobe software (e.g. ACR).  That is, does one have to convert the photo to DNG before applying the DNG Profile?

Yes.  That is the whole point of the CC software.  They build camera profiles that appear in your ACR profiles tab along with Standard, Portrait, Vivid, etc, etc.

You load any raw file into ACR and choose your camera profile of choice from the dropdown.

Thanks Mike.  The Adobe tutorials talk about applying the profile to DNG files (naturally), but it seems like the profile could be applied to a non-DNG raw file.
