During a direct comparison of the RAW+dwSoftISP vs the RGB ‘processed’ pipeline, we notice that image outputs are very dark and dull when using the raw sample code.
This is for identical camera type parameters given to both samples. Does the Software ISP not replicate similar processing of the RAW data to pleasing, well-contrasted RGB8 images? Our experience is dark low-contrast images with a slight pink taint.
Could you please check this symptom on our latest PDK(Drive 1.0). If you are DW 1.2 already, can you please share the camera details, commands along with screenshots of captured images.

The sample_camera_gmsl_raw is expected to be a bit dull compared to sample_camera_gmsl. The softISP tries to mimic the HW ISP. But softISP is designed for machine vision whereas HW ISP for human.
Thanks for digging up this answer. I’d come to a similar guess and it makes sense. The difficulty is that it then seems very challenging to create images for human’s to label but for machines to learn on using this pipeline. Outdoor road scenes particularly, are regularly lacking in enough contrast to for human labellers to work with conveniently when processed via the dwSoftISP.
The ideal feature set is for RAW recording of images followed by the ability to process it according to a human or machine vision pipeline using the dwSoftISP API’s. Is any feature like this expected?
