Auto-apply basecurves camera model specific instead of maker specific, if availiable
Sorry for my poor english ... thank you google...
First a little explanation of my workflow. I manage my photos with digiKam. I do almost everything with digikam: importing, editing, tags, exports, except of course the processing of raw.
when I modify metadata - assign a tag, for example - Digikam creates a xmp file with many things inside whose tag. The XML namespace used is essentially the xmp namespace defined by Adobe.
The tests I've done show that when dt open a photo for the first time, if the xmp file exists (previously created by dk), it does not apply the D800 curve, but the "like Nikon." curve.
I guess the tests done during the raw opening must consider that the curve is already affected. Is it simply because the xmp file already exists?
I provided the following XMP files:
- Created by dt
- Created by dk
- Created by dk and modified by dt

I have uploaded the corresponding XMP files at the same place : http://moisson.free.fr/darktable/
files with dk extention : xmp created by digikam
files with dt extention : xmp created by darktable (good base curve)
files with dk+dt extention : xmp ceated by digikam and updated by darktable (bad base curve)

I can confirm. darktable behaves differently in terms of the auto-applied basecurve depending on the presence of a digikam XMP.
I thought model specific basecurves are not auto-applied at the moment. If I open the .nef from above there is the 'like Nikon' curve. This also is true for my 'Pentax K-5' curve. I have injected my 'Pentax K-5ck' curve into the database before. So I can configured my personal curve to auto-apply via the config dialog, because the via darktable supplied basecurves are locked. Interesstingly both 'Pentax K-5' and 'Pentax K-5ck' appear in bold letters in the basecurve modul then.
Isn't it a feature request therefore? 'Auto-apply basecurves camera model specific instead of maker specific, if availiable'
