Not a problem

Lightroom Desktop: Camera Matching profiles disappear for double exposures

"Camera Matching" is a section within Profiles that is always present with images shot on my Fuji cameras, and lets me select any of the FujiFilm Profiles.

To reproduce this:

  1. Shoot a normal photo on FujiFilm X-T3
  2. Switch X-T3 to "Double Exposure" mode and shoot a double exposure (which results in a single image in-camera)
  3. Import both photos to Lightroom
  4. Hit Cmd-B to view Profiles on each

On the normal photo, the Camera Matching section is visible and its profiles selectable. On the double exposure, the Camera Matching section disappears / goes away.

Isn't the double exposure photo a Jpeg? Camera Matching profiles apply to raw files only, so they won't appear for any jpeg files.

Ohhh! You are correct. Yes, that makes sense. I had actually wondered how Fuji did that RAW magic, but hadn't gotten as far as figuring out that they just rendered an in-camera JPG. 

So... never mind, thanks!

It is interesting though that other color profiles DO remain available on these JPGs, just not the Fuji ones.

Not all profiles are specific to raw files, so can be used on Jpegs.....but some of the Adobe profiles (Adobe Color, Standard, Vivid, etc.), plus all the Adobe-created camera-matching profiles, are specific to raw files, and so will not be available for jpegs.

If you look at the Profile Browser you should see the top two groups - Adobe Raw and Camera Matching - are the ones that disappear when a non-raw file is selected.

Incidentally, I was a bit surprised to find that my Canon R5's multiple exposure function does generate a raw file, though I'm not sure how they do that.

Interesting - so it's more subtle than just "Is this a RAW image?" - more like "If this is not a RAW image, then only show profiles that work on JPGs." Very cool, thanks for illuminating that.

Also cool to hear that Canon is able to save multiple exposure images as RAW. 

Cheers.
