I have the X-Rite ColorChecker Passport and am using it with Lightroom 2.5 and 3Beta, with raw files shot from a Panasonic GF1. I have been able to create a camera profile via using a process of converting raw photos of the Passport target to DNG and then dragging the DNGs into the ColorChecker software, but ONLY IF within the Lightroom export to DNG I select the Compatibility drop-down to Camera Raw 4.6 and later and not the more recent selection of Camera Raw 5.4 and later. I don't have other cameras right now, so I only know that this is a problem with my Panasonic GF1.
The latter (5.4 and later) exports ok it seems, but when I drag the file into the ColorChecker software it shows Auto-Cropping Error dialog box saying it's not a valid DNG. Using a camera raw 4.6 and later compatibility dng exported file works fine however.
In addition, if I try exporting the same raw file (actually, any raw file from the GF1 - I've tried several different shots) via the Lightroom X-Rite ColorChecker export preset, it doesn't work at all. It's starts processing and after a few seconds an error message pops up that ends with '...use photoIDExportSequence instead'. The Lightroom Export Plug-in Manager says that there is a problem with the xrite plug in (some errors encountered). The version of the plugin is 18.104.22.168.
Both errors happen with LR 2.5 and 3Beta. I can find only one version of the ColorChecker software - 1.0 (I assume the version on my CD is the same as that on the Xrite website).
Has anyone encountered a similar problem? I've done some checking via search on this forum and on the net generally but haven't found anything yet. I see no reference to needing to select a version of compatibility in LR (4.6 or lower) in any of the documentation or reviews. However, I suppose I could have overlooked it I suppose.
