Color management and measurement technology company X-Rite has announced a new public beta release of ColorChecker Camera Calibration software version 1. 2. This pre-release update includes support for Phase One's Capture One software with TIFF file support, a first for X-Rite's custom profiling tool.
X-Rite has been working on adding Capture One support to its custom camera profiling software for some time now and it's finally here — at least in beta form. As is currently possible in the Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Camera Raw version of the ColorChecker Camera Calibration software, v1. 2 adds the ability to create custom ICC profiles in Capture One with various camera, lens and lighting combinations.
X-Rite has created a helpful how-to video, embedded below, that runs through the process of creating a custom ICC profile using Camera Calibration software v1. 2. There's also a PDF version available.
To download the public beta release, head over to X-Rite's download page. Keep in mind this is a pre-release program, so there will likely be a few bugs here and there. X-Rite requests users submit details when an error occurs to help further development.
X-Rite also notes a known issue with the Windows version of the ColorChecker Camera Calibration software wherein 'the software cannot process a TIFF file larger than 150 megabytes. ' X-Rite suggests cropping or reducing the resolution if users run into this issue and notes the issue is currently being addressed.. dpreview.com
