DNG import problem

17 posts in this topic

Hi,

when I import a DNG file from DxO optics 9 into AP I have strange colours switch.

See attached file for problem and settings.

Also, it seems the exposure is a bit off.

Have you tried adjusting the RAW settings in the Develop assistant? Trying setting Tone Curve to 'Take no action' and see what results you get. Also could you attach the DNG file please?

Hi,

With no curve it looks awful (see attached file). I'll send you the DNG file on priv.

Also, I've just realized I can Import DNG into 32bit :P Thou I think 16bit is more than enough, once I finish it into 8bit web jpg.

Did you get my PM with files?

Sorry I didn't get back to you yesterday I've had some other QA work to be getting on with. I've just checked my PMs however and there is nothing from you. :(

I don't see any colours that are being switched, however I can see the DxO one is slightly more contrast and saturation though. Is that what you are reporting?

For me it's saturation/lightness and a bit of a blueish hue. Look at the reds on the dress.

All in all, I have to do colour balance after importing DNG file as minimum.

Do you get a colour change if you export from DxO as a tiff ?. 

With DNG you are comparing 2 different raw converters and I wouldn't expect to see the same result. Dxo is applying it's own set of adjustments which Affinity cannot replicate. We have updated the raw handling in the beta is it significanlty different to the retail version for you?

I'll try that Tiff import. Also, I think I didn't had such problems with retail.

I just tried importing tiff, the shadows are a bit off.

In that case the only difference would be down to the monitor profile to check that can you use a default sRGB monitor profile and see if there is any difference with a tif ?

I tired some other images exported into tiff from DxO and the imported into AP, and the colors are much closer to what I see in DxO (whereas DNG and CR2 are washed-out and slightly blue tinted).

I wouldn't expect DNG and cr2 to be the same as in Dxo as it will have different processing applied in DxO which we cannot replicate in Affinity Photo. If you want colour accuracy you must use another format

Ok, now I understand more clearly. Then CR2/DNG processing of 6D images is... lacking, washed out, etc.
