Color Finesse 3 and too light or too dark previews
on Jul 12, 2011 at 12:57:53 am

Hi
Can someone help me with the following issue.

The previews in Color Finesse are either too light, or too dark. If I enable color management and linearize the working space in any of 8,16 or 32 bpc the preview in color finesse is ALWAYS 2 -3 stops too dark.

Otherwise it's too light(if I disable linearize working space).

Whats most confusing is if I turn off color management entirely, the preview in CF is still too light.

I didn 't have this problem til I started messing with color management recently so don't know what the issue is....

It sounds like the Color Finesse UI (and therefore preview) is not color-managed.

Yeah, accidentally changed the view lut, which isn't reset even if you click 'reset all'

Thanks so much for posting back with the solution -- not enough people do this!
