Creating new kind of picture styles
« on: November 17, 2017, 02:19:56 PM »
Ok! Hello.
Not sure which category to post this under because it is part general chat, part post production, part dynamic range and color stuff.
I see lot of picture style creator sell this work but i believe on the community.
The french company create Cinestyle and it is free.
I do some picture style for myself and i want to share with yours, it's free and cool.
I appreciate understanding and creating new picture.
For the moment i share only one.
It is dynamic optimised for 800D at 100iso but it is can be used with any other canon DSLR.
If you make a video even at average iso like 1600iso lot of noise can be observed but it is ok because you have more dynamic range and can graded that.

Half Gauss:
picture style:

Chromatic artefact reduced at hight iso:

Tell me what you want i can make one imitation for yours.
Try it out and report back. If you don't like it, tell me why and i can modify for your.
ps : I will improve my english sorry for that.

Do you know if it is possible to somehow convert a lut, or ICC profile into a .pf3 file so that I can load it into the camera as a picture style?  Or another method to get the calculations of the lut into the picture profile editing software to export as a .pf3 file?

@dcw1979, see this thread where we investigated pretty thoroughly:

The answer is that it's theoretically possible, and we did reverse engineer and start documenting the .pf2/.pf3 file format, but that development stalled when it came to developing tools to make use of the info. It's still on my back burner, so if you feel technically inclined it'd be great for someone to dig in with a fresh pair of eyes!
