Lightroom: How do I convert a JPEG Lens Correction profile for use with raw files?

I would like to have the lens profile in Lightroom for Voigtländer Ultron 40mm (Canon 5D mark II).
In Photoshop CS5 you can download from internet a lens profile from lens correction filter, but in Lightroom no way.

I followed also the instructions of this tutorial: http://www.uibuzz.com/2010/adobe/adob...

But after that I cannot see lens profile correction in Lightroom.

You can also use the Lens Profile Downloader from Adobe Labs:

There are separate profiles are for RAW and JPG, so if a profile doesn't show in LR make sure the file-type matches.

Thanks Steve!

I found the profile for jpg, so this is the reason why I do not see it in Lightroom since I work in RAW.

Is there a way to "translate" the profile from jpg to Raw?

Sort of. The profile is plain text. You'll have a bunch of lines that are of the form "stCamera:CameraRawProfile". They probably all say "FALSE". Change them to true and re-save with a new file name (I like to append "raw" to the name like Adobe does) and you'll have a profile that sort of works in raw. Building your own is better.

Many thanks for the trick Lee Jay !! Works perfectly (at least until I build my own).
