    Tosch answered my question there and I continued the discussion there with my results.



    (Original post below)

    I've been reading about custom HDR profiles and testing a few that have been posted.

    I'm currently using the TrueLightsUltraHDR hdp posted by INSQMNIAC.

    That's getting close to what I'm looking for, but I'd like to tweak the settings to lighten the shadows a bit. I want to keep actual dark and black colored objects the same and have a similar overall contrast, and only tweak the shadow brightness to be less dark.

    Here are two screenshots, first with TrueLightsUltra (shadows too dark):

    A quick image edit to show the lighter shadows I'm looking for.

    Which of these settings should I adjust and which direction + or - to get closer to that look for the shadows, without changing actual dark and black painted textures?

    SkyType=
    StartET=
    AdaptET=
    Luminance=
    WhitePoint=
    BlackPoint=
    MiddleGray=
    PostGamma=
    AirMassMult=
    ShadowDiffusion=
    LocalCloudIntensity=
    SunTransLum=
    SunScatrLum=
    MoonTransLum=
    MoonScatrLum=
    UseBloom=
    BloomWhitePoint=
    BloomThreshold=
    BloomOffset=
