When I try to use "Auto" correction in the new Adaptive Wide Angle filter, it pops up with "No matching lens profile found". I searched for information and was directed to go to the Lens Correction filter. I pressed the "Search Online" button. The first time it comes back with "Connection timeout", but the second time it says "No online profiles found". Come on, really?!
ACR has my lens profile (Canon 24-105 f/4 IS), why can't PS CS6 find it? Is there a workaround? I'd really like to use the Adaptive Wide Angle filter.
I've discovered a bit more information.
My current camera is a Canon 5D Mark III, but I had a Mark II with this same lens before that.
I was editing a photo from the Mk II, and found that Adaptive Wide Angle defaulted to "auto" for it, having found a lens profile.
Since it's the very same lens, it apparently is not related to the lens at all, but rather the camera body.
I just installed an update to PS this morning, but it did not improve the situation at all.
How can it be that Adobe doesn't seem to support the 5D Mark III in PS CS6, one of the more popular full-sensor camera bodies out there?
After not receiving any replies here, I decided to phone support.
30 minutes later, the answer is that this is a known problem, and hasn't even been fixed yet in PS CC. The support person did say that when it is fixed, they will be providing an update for PS CS6. I hope only that he is right, and that they can get to it ASAP.
The 5D III came out a few months before CS6, which itself is a year old. I'm really surprised this hadn't been addressed before now, but I look forward to it getting fixed soon.
And what are they doing about the fact that if an image has been cropped before going into PS, the correction isn't valid. I assume they could read the pixel dimensions and know it's the full file. Will there be a warning that the correction won't work, if it finds a cropped image?
I'm not familiar with that problem, Diane. I just tried it on a cropped 5D Mk II file (cropped in ACR), and it seemed to work fine. (I tried both the Adaptive Wide Angle filter, and the Lens Correction filter). I didn't try it on a Mk III file, since those don't seem to work uncropped.
But how could it possibly work on a cropped file? Now wait -- I'm talking about the Auto Correction. Maybe you're not.... In LR / ACR the crop is non-destructive so it has the full file to use.
How can you tell it works - correctly, that is. Say you have noticeable vignetting, and you crop 1/3 off the right edge (on a landscape format) -- does it correct the vignette on the left edge and over-correct (lighten too much) on the right edge where there isn't a vignette?
The whole auto thing has to be based on the full frame, including chromatic aberration. That's what the profiles are for -- auto correction.
You're right, I was talking about manual corrections. And you're also right, the example you give is a problem. But I don't really view that as a bug -- it's actually the behavior I would expect. Vignette correction simply applies to the current contents, it isn't meant to analyze the contents of the image and make the right changes. It'd be nice to have a "content aware" vignette correction like that; maybe someday they'll implement that.
But for me, it's important to just get the Adaptive Wide Angle and Lens Correction filters working, at all, first!
