** What does that mean in detail? I never heard of that one. What a profile is it exactly? Remember: on the
web there is nothing like reliable color-profiles. A kind of agreement says that sRGB is something
like a base - but not every browser handles it correctly.
The Color Checker is just that a calibration utility for which I create a profile for each of my lenses, as I only have the one body:http://xritephoto.com/ph_product_overview.aspx?ID=1257
** So: either NO profile or sRGB-profile. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SRGB
I have been using Adobe RGB color space for a good few years now as it has a larger gamut than sRGB. I also dicsoverd this morning that LR uses Pro Photo RGB Color Space.
Klaus, which would you recommend for AGP. *.TIFF or *.DNG files to build the pano before rendering?
A *colorspace* and a *profile* are different things! They CAN interact - or not.
In APG i almost always use TIFF.
1) shooting RAW: i process the RAW preferably in CaptureOne.
2) export them as 16bit TIFF or 8bit TIFF (depends on the individual case) to APG.
1a) shooting bracketed as RAW: i process the RAWs in C1 and export them as TIFF to Photomatix.
1aa) shooting JPG "processing" the JPG in LightRoom (CA, vign., sharpness and some) (i use JPG only when i have some hundreds of iages)
1b) process HDR-->>tonemapping in Phtmx and exporet them as 16bit TIFF to APG for stitching.
1c) Rendering as 8bit or 16bit TIFF.
1d) making sphere to cube, editing the Nadir and making cube to sphere again using the KRPano droplets.
1e) final controlling/editing in Photoshop.
I prefer to export TIFF 8 or 16bit to PTP and use compr. 7 or 8 here - my panos/tours have extremely big data-amount otherwise . .
and it´s no relevant advantage to use more than 8.
