I added this here as cannot find the forum for Adobe DNG converter. I have a serious issue with not only adobe dng converter but also Lightroom, any time I import ARW into Adobe DNG converter and DNG into Lightroom, it completely messes with the flat profile.Why is it constantly adding in a color profile and changing the color of my photos? It is completely ruining all of my photos, especially darker ones.

Check both products for the raw presets which do affect the profile selected.

There are no such settings in DNG converter, and why does Adobe assume anyone would want this? It is a bug that should be fixed not a work around that causes more work.

There are zero options for any such rendering in the DNG converter. It simply converts the proprietary raw to DNG (as raw as the original). There is no profile at this point. 

Not a bug; by design. Profiles are applied elsewhere.

That obviously isn't the case, the above screenshot, the ARW is imported into DNG converter and the DNG comes out different colors.

Sorry but you are wrong. There are no settings for DNG converter that modify the colors. I imported an slog2 image and DNG converter changed the color. That is hardly user error.

Agreed and already outlined; the DNG converter doesn't alter the color. Read what has been explained here:

Profiles are applied on import though the raw presets. That part is one users error.

Additionally the video you provided is for an outdated version of Lightroom, it doesn't even have those features or layout now.

Nope, still works this way. Watch and learn how, when and where profiles are applied (hint: not the DNG converter):

https://laurashoe.com/2020/02/11/whats-new-in-lightroom-classic-9-2-raw-defaults/#raw-defaults

 

For quite some time we have been able to change what Develop settings Lightroom Classic applies by default to newly imported raw files. The process to specify new defaults has moved to Preferences and has become more versatile. With this new method you can:

  • Include camera-matching profiles and other in-camera settings in defaults
  • Use presets to specify defaults
  • Vary defaults by camera model, camera serial number, and (with some coding) ISO

To set up camera-specific defaults:

  • Check “Use defaults specific to camera model” (#2 in screenshot above).
  • Choose a camera (#3) – the list includes cameras from all raw files in your catalog.
  • To make the default specific to a specific camera serial number, check “Show serial number” and then choose a specific one (#3)
  • Choose Adobe Default, Camera Settings or a Preset (#5)
  • Click on Create Default (#6)
  • To change a camera default or delete it, right-click on it (#7) and choose the appropriate option.
