X-Rite and Adobe have provisions for creating custom DNG profiles. DataColor just announced a product that appears to operate like these two but instead of making DNG profiles (or as we had in the old days, altering the Calibration Tab), updates the HSL controls. My understanding is that DNG profiles and the Calibration tab operate in a different order of the processing, prior to all the sliders above them. My understanding is there are benefits for doing this but I’d like to know more about this. The question is, what are the practical implications of “calibrating” via a target that affects HSL sliders instead of producing a DNG profile, or at the very least, altering the calibration sliders? Eric you out there bud?
Eric is very active in the ACR forum, including in the last 24 hours, and there's no way he'd be ignoring you if he had read this post of yours.
My impression is that this DNG forum has been neglected if not outright abandoned. Just look at the obsolete and mistyped "announcement" at the top of the index page.
I would suggest posting in the ACR forum instead.

Will do, thanks.
