I have my camera set to Picture Profile off and shooting Jpegs and RAWS

On my previous camera the raws pretty much looked the same as the jpegs once i applied the color profiles for my camera in Lightroom. However with my A7iii the raws look nothing like my JPegs. Is there any way to get the raws to look more like the Jpeg previews?( i obviously know I could fiddle around with in Lightroom until i have a similar look, but i wondered if there was a better way to do this)

I'm guessing that the easiest way might be to use Sony's own Imaging Edge software; I don't know, since I'm not trying to duplicate JPEG looks, but I'd try that since IE might be more likely to obey the detailed camera settings than LR.

Unfortunately, and unlike Canon's DPP, Imaging Edge does not provide identical JPEG output that exactly matches OOC JPEGs. The closest to that in my experience is DoX PhotoLab, the latest version of which also sports some intersting new noise reduction and uses the GPU more to enhance performance.

I upgraded to PhotoLab 4 yesterday, and that new DeepPrime NR considerably improved an old low-light cavern photo I tested it on; haven't investigated all the other new features yet.

Perhaps the OP should download the free PL4 trial and see if they like the results. Thanks for the info.
