Fuji Film Curves ignore ICC Profile setting.

I just noticed an interesting quirk:

Fujis own curve presets (Film Simulations like Provia, Velvia,...) seem to ignore the ICC Profile selection and always use the generic ICC profile.

No matter which ICC profile I select, the result is always absolutely the same when using a specific Fuji curve.
But when I use Film Standard, Film Extra Shadows or Film High Contrast the ICC selection really does matter and has an obvious effect.

I mean of course this is very logical, Fuji would want to use their own profile as a basis for their Film simulations - however I feel that is is poorly (and actually not at all) communicated and one would generally expect the curves to simply use the selected Profile as a starting point...

I am a little puzzled by your problem. I am running Windows 10 and Capture One v12. When I open a Fuji X-Pro2 file the Fujifilm X-Pro2 Generic ICC profile is selected and each of the curves in the Curve drop down give different results (most noticeably with the Arcos film simulations :D ).
A thought you are using the Capture One 12 engine not the 11 engine arn't you?

Yes, each curve gives a differnt result but that result should also depend on the ICC profile used and change when you switch to a different ICC Profile. :)


However, when I select a custom ICC profile (NOT the generic Fuji profile) and a Fuji curve like Velvia, it does not use the custom ICC profile and instead I get the same result as I would get with the generic Fuji ICC profile.

I suspect that the Fuji curves are closely tied to the generic fuji profile and not designed to work with any other ICC profile. I sugest you raise a suport case and, if you do, please report the answer back here.
