VSCO profiles with newer (unsupported) cameras

Hello,

I'm wondering if anyone has figured out a way to make VSCO profiles & Lightroom Classic CC/ACR work with newer cameras that have yet to be updated by VSCO? Especially given the near-discontinuation of VSCO I think many would be interested in finding a workaround for this. I've tried a number of different things but no luck.

To be clear my problem isn't with presets but rather the VSCO camera profiles.

Things I've tried:

1. renaming copies of existing VSCO Nikon profiles with the name of the new camera (i.e. Nikon d810>>>Nikon Z7 & Nikon d810>>>Nikon Z 7)

2. Importing profiles via the dialogs in Lightroom Classic CC and ACR in PS CC 2019

3. deleting the Index.dat file in the CameraProfiles folder

4. Moving profiles from CameraProfiles into the CameraSettings folder

Incidentally, I'm on a Mac running LR Classic CC 8.1. I'm specifically working with Nikon Z 7 files but I imagine that the solution would be essentially the same for any given camera.

Thanks in advance.

Do you mean that when you use them they fail. Or do you mean you cannot find them?

Followup

Not being a holder of any VSCO products, I went and visited their website. I see they are discontinuing desktop products, focusing on the Mobile market. (VSCO Film Discontinued FAQ – The VSCO Help Center )

I also see, or perhaps better to see no way to download any presets be the profile or develop. Neither free nor paid. Apparently if you previously paid, a way exists to get them before they go away completly.

I also see, that these profile presets are in fact camera specific and camera matching (from the article about discontinuing I think).

So you may be SOL???

I have the same problems as you with my Nikon Z6.

Have you found a solution to get the camera profiles for Nikon Z7 or Z6 for the VSCO presets?

Thanks in advance.

Same happens for me with the Sony a6300. Have you been able to find a solution for this?

This worked for me. I have edited a Z7 raw, which I downloaded as I do not have Z7 🙂

Just used a d750 profile and replaced the line `d750` with `Z 7 `- important to put a space between and after. Worked like a charm. I assume it will work for Z6 as well.

This video shows a hack how you can use a brand new camera model before Vsco is releasing a update for their presets. It's free, it's easy. We need it for ou...
