Using LUT files in Softimage 2012


There seems to be a bit of UI glitch in the Color Management preferences PPG. If you choose From LUT File in the Source list, you cannot select a LUT file from the Filename list. In fact, the Filename list just lists No LUT.

Here’s a couple of workarounds:

  • Set the LUT file through scripting:
    Application.SetValue("preferences.Display.color_management_source", 1, "")
    Application.SetValue("preferences.Display.color_management_lut_filename", "sRGB_10bits.lut", "")
    
  • Use this modified factory SPDL:
    $XSI_HOME/Application/spdl/C3DPrefsDisplay.spdl
    I tested this on my own install, but still, “use at your own risk”.

BTW, this issue is already logged and fixed internally.

    • The fix is not in SP1, it is in the “current” code branch. I doubt there would be a hotfix for just this one issue, since there are workarounds.
