These days, the main reason I shoot in RW2 (Panasonic’s raw file format) is to re-map the colours using film pack. It’s a film simulation plug in and although not documented, I'm just assuming that it will work better if the application can re-map the colour from raw data instead of already processed JPG file.
One problem is that the colour doesn’t always came out as I want it to be. Sometimes, it can be too purple, or too blue. Moving the white balance slider doesn’t change anything and the way I can try correcting the colour is by tweaking the colour balances through the RGB curves, which I’m still not good yet.
What if, the film pack ignore white balance setting and used a defined number in it only ? It just came to me yesterday. There’s Filter setting beneath, and back in the days when nobody has yet discovered the versatility of digital, they use colour filter to do corrections.
And true. Putting a weak colour filter setting, the colour can more or less be corrected. Above that, it also left less problem than inexperienced curve tweaking.
In my case, I want to add a little bit of yellow glow, but if I reduce the blue curve, the other colours got affected a lot more than if using filter.
Anyway, this mean I can use it a lot more now and start looking again for which one is my favourite :D
