    The C1 image get's a yellow-orange cast on the background.

    That's the Capture One "look" - their camera profiles routinely bias towards the yellow-orange.

    Shouldn't they be similar?

    In a word - no.

    They should be similar if both programs had a completely neutral color option. They don't and both apply different curves during rendering, hence the difference. Different starting point for post processing. You decide what you like best. As for me, I always got to the end-point faster with C1, but must admit I haven't tried Lr since 2017.

    Carlos,

    In your example image, there is a clear difference in skin tones with the typically "warm" tone that C1 presents for some cameras. Notably Canon.

    However, the colours on the test chart look broadly the same so far as the image is presented through my browser.  I could load it into C1 and throw up some colour points to see how things very but that is not guaranteed to be a useful comparison for the sort of checking required here.

    What happens if you change the Curve for the Base Characteristics tool? To Linear maybe? That should give you a colour interpretation from the RAW file without any "preferred look" preferences involved. Basically, that would be the C1 interpretations of the RAW file data with neutral colour.

    If you have a few preferred settings for curve and profile you could save them as custom values and make them defaults for the camera for which they were created..(If that suits your needs of course. It may not.)

    Thank you all for your input. I will try it out with the linear profile.

    This is the very reason I gave up on Capture One.
