Wie werden LCP- und DCP-Profile erstellt?

Adobe's Lens Correction Profiles (LCP, for correcting distortion, vignetting and chromatic aberration) and DNG Color Profiles (DCP, input color profiles) come bundled with Adobe DNG Converter. You can also get LCP profiles with Adobe Lens Profile Downloader, or easily make your own using Adobe Lens Profile Creator by following the steps below.

Linux

This short guide will assume you used ~/wine-dng/ as your WINEPREFIX. The default WINEPREFIX is ~/.wine/ but it is more robust to use a custom and non-hidden one. For more information, see the last paragraph titled "For your information - wine prefix" on the How to convert raw formats to DNG page.

From Adobe DNG Converter

A large collection of DCP and LCP profiles come bundled with Adobe DNG Converter.

  1. Follow the steps in the Linux section of the "How to convert raw formats to DNG" article to install Adobe DNG Converter in Linux.
  2. Find generic LCP profiles for your camera under:
    "$HOME/wine-dng/drive_c/users/Public/Application Data/Adobe/CameraRaw/LensProfiles/1.0/"
    "$HOME/wine-dng/drive_c/users/Public/Application Data/Adobe/CameraRaw/LensProfiles/1.0/"
    or generic DCP profiles under:
    "$HOME/wine-dng/drive_c/users/Public/Application Data/Adobe/CameraRaw/CameraProfiles/Adobe Standard/"
    or try the 'effect' DCP profiles (landscape, portrait, etc) under:
    "$HOME/wine-dng/drive_c/users/Public/Application Data/Adobe/CameraRaw/CameraProfiles/Camera/"
  3. Copy the relevant profiles to a different folder for easy access, for example to ~/profiles/

From Adobe Lens Profile Downloader

You could also use Adobe's Lens Profile Downloader. For the exact code how to install it, refer to the Linux section of the "How to convert raw formats to DNG" article.

  1. Install wine
  2. Install Adobe Air. The latest version that works is 1.5.3, do not update to a newer one! http://airdownload.adobe.com/air/win/download/1.5.3/AdobeAIRInstaller.exe
  3. Download the Lens Profile Downloader: http://www.adobe.com/support/downloads/detail.jsp?ftpID=5492
  4. Run the Lens Profile Downloader in Adobe Air.
    WINEPREFIX=$HOME/wine-dng wine "$HOME/wine-dng/drive_c/Program Files (x86)/Common Files/Adobe AIR/Versions/1.0/Adobe AIR Application Installer.exe"
    If Air asks you to update, don't. Then open the Adobe_Lens_Profile_Downloader_1_0_1.air file from it. I installed it to c:\alpd
  5. Run the Adobe Lens Profile Downloader to get the profiles you want:
    WINEPREFIX=$HOME/wine-dng wine "$HOME/.wine/drive_c/alpd/Adobe Lens Profile Downloader/Adobe Lens Profile Downloader.exe"
  6. The profiles you have downloaded via the Lens Profile Downloader can be found here, cunningly renamed to a hash to make your life more difficult:
    "$HOME/wine-dng/drive_c/users/YOU/Application Data/Adobe/CameraRaw/LensProfiles/1.0/Downloaded/"

TooWaBoo made two LCPs by hand for de-fishing the Samyang 8mm lens, tailored to the APS-C sensor size used by Nikon, Pentax and Sony. Might need tweaking for Canon.
