raw fine tuning... aperture 3
so i mainly use my dslr as a filmmaker, however i do use it for photos aswell, so took some xmas snaps and noticed that when i loaded raw photos into aperture, it went from a flat picture to one that was really boosted in contrast/saturation which isnt what i expected from a raw file and infact makes all my pictures look like a jpeg file.
that was until i went into raw fine tuning, for some reason (im not an aperture expert so have no idea of the purpose) the boost and hue boost were both at 1.00 which when i reduced it down to boost 0.20 and hue boost 0.0 the picture looked exactly more or less as it should have in the first place?
i use a canon 600d so is this something that was supposed to do in the first place? why would apple put such a horrible preset in?
am i wrong to reduce the boost?
your thoughts please.

Look here, go to lesson 8 correcting color:
Is your monitor calibrated?

yes the dell u2410 is calibrated using colormunki, the prints are more or less exactly the same so in that regard i have no issue as i also do video editing.
what im trying to say is that in the RAW FINE TUNING there are two options at the top which at default on mine is 1.0/ 1.0 the image is what iv adjusted it to to provide more accurate colours rather than the boosted colours that i get from a flat image.

I don't think you're crap at explaining it, I understood exactly what you were talking about. I think it all depends on what the individual photog wants for his/her images. If you think about the way that RAW image data works, Aperture has to start somewhere. So it starts with settings that most closely resemble what the jpeg approximation from the camera would likely look like, but that's where the advantages of RAW shine, if that's not the look you want, just reduce those sliders. I don't think that there's any wrong to it. I always shoot RAW, and I have a bad habit of leaving those sliders where they are, even if I should probably reduce them sometimes.
Unfortunately, if you plan on regularly reducing these sliders I don't think there's a way to reset the defaults, but you should be able to put them where you want and add it as a one click preset if you'd prefer that as a starting point.
Hope I could be of help, as I'm fairly new to all of this myself.
