Lightroom CC: Camera calibration - not profiles, just calibration

Hello, I would like to ask when the calibration is coming to Lightroom CC? I love CC and I want to use it, but still can't transition from Classic because of the calibration, which makes such a difference on editing.

I'm talking specifically about those controllers:

Here is the picture made in Lightroom CC:

And here is the picture made in Lightroom Classic:

Both are good results, I think, but that last balance of colors, that you cannot get from the colors adjustment, makes a total difference.

By the way, the adjustments were made identical between CC and Classic (besides the calibration).

Please bring the calibration controls to CC and you will have a 100% satisfied customer there :D

Actually, with the new creative profiles, you could save this correction as a new profile (in Camera Raw). After that, you can import it in Lightroom CC and so you could even use it in the mobile versions of Lightroom CC because these now get synced. Here's an explanation of how to do this:

Can you explain how to create a profile with these settings for RAW files & JPEG? I have spent a full day researching and just need the exact steps to do so. Do I start with a RAW file, DNG or TIF file? Should the profile be Adobe Color, Standard? The person in the video shows the use of LUT files. Do I need to create a LUT file just to do the above camera calibration? Thanks!

I 100% back this request - it is a major element in which the CC version needs to incorporate. A lot of previous presets made in classic version are not 100% accurate in CC.. The answer above about saving the correction in CameraRaw is an extremely roundabout way on what could be a simple fix on just the feature back?

I've never understood why the new CC version (as adobe is trying to push everyone towards it) doesn't just copy the exact same features from classic if it wants to be the "go to" version.. the user interface is excellent, and syncing is a breeze to mobile - but it still in my eyes needs to bring in more features to be the preferred version..
