The Mavic may already have a lens profile built into the raw DNG format. In Lightroom, you can confirm this by looking for the presence of an Info (i) icon on the lower portion of the lens correction panel. If it is there, clicking on it will inform which aberrations are being automatically corrected.

Thanks for the hint. But there is only the message what I try to activate the correction, that a matching profile can't be found.

Thank you for confirming. Would you be able to upload a sample DNG file from the Mavic Air and provide a download link?

I created a profile myself.
There is obviously not much to correct. Here is the link to it: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ugkO2R7hNoNLYcq4LdUwrhXX337Eiru5/view?usp=sharing

What I don't understand: I can apply it for DNG files but not for JPGs in Lightroom?!? Is it because I created the profile with DNG files?

Hi,

Thank you for sharing the profile you created.

I located some external sample DNGs from the Mavic Air which includes a built-in WarpRectilinear opcode for correcting distortion and a GainMap for vignette correction. Your images should also include the opcodes unless there is a way to disable lens corrections in the camera (I'm not sure).

The screen capture below is of the "info" indicator I mentioned previously. This is from Adobe Camera Raw, but an equivalent version of Lightroom should display the same information on the Lens Correction panel.



External lens profiles such as the one you created work on either raw or JPEG images, but not both. JPEGs are output referred and are usually corrected for lens aberrations in-camera, so they typically do not require a lens correction profile.

That said, if you make a copy of your existing profile and change the value of the following element (all instances of it) from True to False, it will become available to apply on JPEGs.

<stCamera:CameraRawProfile>True</stCamera:CameraRawProfile>

                                               - change to -

<stCamera:CameraRawProfile>False</stCamera:CameraRawProfile>

The results may not be ideal given that the DNG is a scene referred image and that is likely what you used to create the profile. You can also reshoot your calibration targets in JPEG mode to generate a JPEG-specific profile that way.

Hope that helps.

Regards,

- Chris

Thanks for the explanation Chris. 

There is not option to disable it in the camera/drone. 

Now I see, that the embedded profile is used in Photoshop. My Lightroom installation was broken, so that might be the reason why it was not using and showing the integrated profile. 

When I had created the profile myself, I was surprised because there is nearly no change to the 'normal' DNG, which I had never seen before.

Where do I make these setting for Lightroom to apply the profile for JPGs? 

Thanks
Claus

Hi Claus,

The profiles (raw and JPEG versions) can be copied to the same LensProfiles/1.0 location in your user folder where Lightroom, Camera Raw and Photoshop will all read from.

I'm not sure which version of Lightroom you have, but there was a brief period when we first added the "info" indicator to Camera Raw that it had not made it to Lightroom for a version or 2 later. That could be the difference you see.

Regards,

- Chris

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled yongnuo lens profile?.

I have the Yongnuo YN35mm f2 lens, which I am using with a Canon 7D Mk ii. Lightroom (Classic, at least) does not appear to have a profile for this lens. At least when I work on photos taken with this lens, no profile is apparent.

As it is a reasonably popular lens (not terribly well known, but it is known as a very good sub $100 lens), and because I have it, a profile would be very much appreciated.

One question to you Chris: How do I get the profile now into Premiere Pro? I thought there would be a way but I can't find it anymore or was this just for LUTs?
There are a few lens correction but they are not for the Mavic Air and with the 4 sliders I can't get the horizont strait because it looks a little bit like a snake with a valley in the center like this:

Both raw file and JPEG file camera filters were made available in LR 3.2 and ACR 6.2. What versions are you using?

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Lightroom/Camera Raw: Lens Profiles only work on raw/DNG files.

Lens profiles are only available on RAW files. However there is a list of (useless) "default" profiles that is available to any image format. 

In the most recent update to 7.3.1 the limiting of the Lens Distortion tool has made it impossible to correct lens distortion for anyone not using RAW image formats. As an editor this has made it impossible for me to correct image distortion from some of my clients. 

Where I used to be able to add a lens profile to an image then make large adjustments with the distortion slider, then I could alley them to multiple images vis the Sync option. I can now only make small adjustments that are not significant enough to make up for the lack of lens profiles in the "default" options available to non-RAW images.  To correct these distortions I have to do each individual file in Photoshop. This has INCREASED not decreased production time dramatically. 

Either add ALL profiles to the availability of all image formats or restore the functionality to the distortion slider. In reality both should happen, the profiles should be available across all formats AND the distortion slider should work as it did in previous versions.

Please fix this yesterday.

Nothing has changed with lens profiles in LR 7.3.1 on my Windows 7 system. In the past lens profiles for non raw image files (JPEG) were only provided for "select" lenses. The vast majority of lenses only have a lens profile that is usable with raw files. I have no idea what you mean by, "there is a list of (useless) "default" profiles that is available to any image format.   Where are you seeing these lens profiles?

In the most recent update to 7.3.1 the limiting of the Lens Distortion tool has made it impossible to correct lens distortion for anyone not using RAW image formats.
If you're talking about the 'Distortion' slider in the Lens Corrections> Manual panel it works the same as in the past in LR 7.3.1 on my Windows 7 system.

Something is wrong with your LR 7.3.1 installation. Please try opening the Creative Cloud app, uninstall LR, restart your system, and reinstall LR 7.3.1.

I spent 3 hours on the phone with support and they compared it to their version on a Mac and agree that it is different in the level of effect. They opened an old version and compared it to the 7.3.1 to confirm. Maybe it is a Mac thing but the level of affect is in fact different.

So it appears to be a Mac only issue. I suggest mentioning that to Rikk Flohr at your original post. He is an Adobe employee and others landing there with Mac systems can confirm the issue. If it is a global change in 7.3.1 on OS X that should help anyone on a Mac who is experiencing this issue.
