Lightroom 4 exporting problem

Hi,

 

I have been using Lightroom for years without any problems.

 

Today I had a problem exporting editing images to DNG. Lightroom will only export the original unedited versions to DNG. If I export to JPG I get the edited versions, but it will not export the edited versions to DNG.

 

Any help much appreciated.

    What are you viewing the resulting DNG file in?  A DNG is a raw file in a different wrapper, with the extra metadata and updated preview embedded, so you'll need to view it in a program that understands the Develop settings or shows you the embedded preview.

    Hi Victoria,

     

    even when I import the exported DNG into a new LR 4.3 catalog, it doesn't pick up the corrections that were made by the original LR 4.3 catalog to the DNG... This is the first time I'm encountering this... The jpegs, tiffs etc do have the corrections applied, just not the DNG... very weird.  So basically I cannot detach my DNG's from the LR 4.3 catalog at the moment...

    I can't reproduce it here so far.  Mac or Windows?

     

    Export dialog set to Export as Original or Export as DNG format?
