The colours I get from the fp are quite pleasing. I used the Color Checker to make a custom preset. But I think the Merrill colours are better.

Are you able to make a custom preset using a Foveon image of the color checker?

If by "custom preset" we mean a file of type DCP, the answer is "yes".

Just found a command-line app "dcpTool" that can convert a DCP to a viewable/editable XML and, if edited, convert it back.


Here's a "how to" for the profile editor:


Your skills are incredible!

Why thank you, kind Sir!

How does it look when the profile is applied to a Bayer image? Is it anywhere near Foveon in terms of colors?

I didn't go that far, Tom. What I posted was for illustration of the method.

Here's one image from the fp L that seems to me matches Merrill resolution. It would be very interesting to see the colors remapped.

From DPR samples, DNG processed in SPP 6.8.0 and other software. 13mb download

Can't work on that, because I can't convert it to a DNG and the Adobe Profile Editor only works on DNG images as far as I know.

Good luck with your Grail of mapping Bayer to the Foveon look.
