    Posterization of stage lighting in Lightroom

    Vidrazor

      Whenever I import images with bright, saturated stage lighting into LR, the images are heavily posterized and lack any detail in saturated areas. I've tried all sorts of settings, but nothing seems to get rid of it. The JPEGs straight out of the camera (a Nikon D600) do not exhibit this. Also, if I bring the RAW files into Capture One, the images are not posterized, as you can see in the sample screen grabs below.

       

      Any ideas why this is? Thanks.
