Hi all, thanks in advance for your insights.
I'm using the Adobe DNG Flat Field Plug-in, and I'd like to analyze the flat-field converted files in a program that doesn't require converting to a color profile to view histogram data (for scientific work).
I'm able to convert my files with the flatfield correction, but then when I open them in a non-Adobe program, such as RawDigger or Image-J, the flat field correction disappears from the converted file. Does anyone have a way to get around this or know why it's happening? My hunch is that it has to due with how the correction layer is integrated into the DNG, making it invisible in other programs.
Does the progress bar complete and is a new ff_dng file created and stacked with the original. The only problem I’m aware of is where the original contains GPS data but this seems to have been solved in the latest update. See this link:
Yes, it creates a new ff_dng that stacks with the original. The problem happens when I go to open the ff_dng file in non-Adobe programs. The correction appears in Lightroom and Photoshop, but not in non-Adobe programs.
DNG Exporting with Camera Raw Compatibility set to 4.6 (or lower) worked for me.
This way flat field correction is apparently not done via metadata that only Adobe understands but directly baked into the pixels.
