    Why is my CfaPattern misaligned

    runtimeterror Level 1

      Hi Everybody,


      I'm currently working on a piece of software that has to read raw DNG image data. Everything seems to work fine except one nasty detail:


      CfaRepeatPatternDim is: 2, 2

      CfaPattern of the file is: 0, 1, 1, 2 (R, G, G, B)

      CfaPlaneColor is: 0, 1, 2 (R, G, B)

      CfaLayout is: 1 (Rectangular)


      So I assumed the Sensor data is laid out as follows:

      R G R G R G ...

      G B G B G B ...



      But the resulting image had completely wrong colors (way too green, unable to reconstruct the original colors by channel mixing)


      I figured out that the image looks right when using a CfaPattern of 1, 0, 2, 1

      G B G B G B ...

      R G R G R G ...



      What did I miss?


      Some othe values that might help:

      ImageWidth: 5344

      ImageLength: 3516

      ActiveArea: 51, 142, 3516, 5344

      DefaultCropOrigin: 10/1 5/1

      DefaultCropSize: 5184/1 3456/1

      Model: Canon EOS 600D


      Thanks in advance for any hint!
