darktable runs perfectly fine on Windows. I did this for the first one or two years.

My workflow should provide you quite good OOC looking images.

The. OOC look is thanks to Stewart Sowerby's great LUTs. I have never encountered as good Fujifilm film simulations mimicking LUTs as those. But the newer film simulations are lacking. Also, they're actually made for X-Trans III. But the difference to the generation IV is not that big so they work also with the X-T4.

Please let me know should you have good LUTs.

Also thinking of making own LUTs but but similarly like you, I have too many interests and hobbies, too much work, family, and never find enough time



Hi Martin

Sorry I didnt mean to imply it didnt run well in Window - Its just very linuxy in its interface which always causes me strife - i'm very flexible with software.. just something about linux stops me dead in my tracks Hope you understand what I mean?

To be honest: no. darktable is actually quite straightforward and logical IMO once you got it. It has a modular structure that is clear IMO.

Lens correction is a potential limitation because darktable relies on the Lensfun database.

The latest camera models typically take some time to be implemented.

I get close to the OOC images - but i'm using bastibes plug in

What is this, Bastibe's plugin? I am interested.

to do this using either stuarts LUTS or Bastibes..

You mean this?

I wanted to try this, too. Just need a little "me time."

as he is working on a set i'm a month or so behind now so not sure what progress he made but the plugin basically applies whatever simulation is used from the camera.. my is generally on provia.. so imports as such. It works ok just a bit slow. Not sure i'd want to import my latest 1200 images... other than before bed. Unfortunaly i'm not that skilled so I have to rely on other peoples genius and generosity to to the smart things.

Haha I think everyone has their expert fields. Noone can cover it all.




Hi Martin

Yes that guy... Bastibes plugin and lutmaker stuff is here - I had a few issues on windows getting it running but it seems to work quite well. The only thing I have an issue is white balance but I have noticed a few people moaning about that in DT4.

In general I like DT - i'm just not sure how it would deal with large import qtys.. I have to try it and see.. especially the culling side. I tend to go overkill on images to make up for my lack of talent.. so I end up with lots to cull
