Did you ever solve this issue? I suffer the same problem
This may be a question to post in the Lightroom forum.
Are you applying any presets at import into Lightroom or under Edit>preferences>presets> do you have "apply autotone adjustments" checked?
Thank you for your reply. In my hunting I didn't realize I had strayed to the DNG Editor forum. I have no presets enabled. In addition there is a radical magenta / pink over saturation in LR2 that I don't get in CaptureOne. I only bring this up in case you have seen / solved such a problem. I'm shooting DNG with Leica DMR and Leica lenses.
Here is an additional comparison further highlighting the magenta issue (amongst others). Shot with Leica R9 w/DMR(firmware1.3) using Leica Vario-Elmarit-R 35-70mm at ISO 100, f/4.8, 1/60. Manual WB=4912K, no Exp Comp.
Here is screen shot of same DNG image. Un-altered in either app., no presets, no sharpening, or noise reduction. CaptureOne (v4.8.3) on the left, and LR2 (v2.6)
Here is what the above screen shot looks like thru CS3:
you must click on image to see CS3 rendering - browser is not accurate
Anyone no what's going on?
PS the images were shot just shy of perfect focus to test sharpening in both apps, same levels applied to both images (C1 on left, LR on right). Here are the results:
Until sticky topics and better forum search is available for this forum, redundent posting ad-nauseum is par for the course.
My experience has been that they will look the same, provided the same profile has actually been applied to the photo in Lightroom (its not automatic), and no other settings have been inadvertently applied (shift-click the reset button) - check this if you haven't already.
You sure you haven't double applied some settings or something (its easy to do this on accident)? - this seems way off.
Try shift-clicking the Reset button.
I'm not familiar with Lecia R9 rendering so I can't say if there is some problem - Eric Chan of Adobe will often chime in if he knows anything useful about stuff like this.
I can also recommend trying a different profile (maybe ACR 4.4). I assume you are using Adobe Standard which sometimes runs a little "red".
PS - I strongly recommend you change your screen name: "stoopidadobe" is inflamatory and we have enough problems keeping the temperature down in here - know what I mean?
Rob, Thanks for the reply. Yes I have reset and reset and reset the settings, emptied the cache... same results for three years now. I live with it, but it cost me time / money by adding steps to my work flow. As for screen name, I appreciate your position, I have changed my screen name. My original protest wasn't so much aimed at Adobe's maddening (but ultimately only-game-in-town) software, but the hugely frustrating act of trying to set up an account and secure a screen name.
You are welcome, although I suspect I haven't really been much help just yet.
I'm a little outside my scope at this point.
I still have a question in my mind:
"Is the problem with the Leica R9, or is there something about your system/set-up that Lightroom/DPE doesn't play nice with?"
- Don't know how to answer, but it least I've got my question straight - don't know if that's the same as your question.
PS - Regarding screen name - I understand your frustration...
Rob, Not to worry about the R9 it's outside scope of most, the R9 is very esoteric. The L-forum has no answers either. Well, other than forcing the M8 codec in via a rather sketchy procedure. The camera was built in such small numbers that there was / is no incentive to develop much for the R9.
So, at the risk of seeming pushy (if it feels that way just raise a flag and I'll back off):
Is the problem you are having just with the Leica R9, i.e. have you been able to try it with another camera?
The motivation for my question is: I don't have the problem. And, I'm using the same software as you (presumably). But then again, I use a different camera, and I run the software on a different system.
See what I'm getting at?
PS - If you already made it clear, and I'm just not seeing it, please forgive - sometimes I miss things, or just forget...
PPS - I'm just a fellow Lightroom user - no other affiliation with Adobe.
Magenta cast doesn't happen with my two other Leica models, nor my Canon's (5D, 7D). The problem is not work station specific. I can easily recreate the problem on any one of several Mac work stations in our offices, or in my home.
It sounds like the problem is in the Leica R9 camera handling / profile, from what little I know.
Did you try posting on the ACR forum? Eric Chan may be more active there than on the Lightroom or DNG forums - I think he's the main man at Adobe who deals with this sort of thing.
If you can't get a rise out of him there, I'd suggest submitting a bug direct to Adobe, BUT FIRST CHANGE YOUR DISPLAYED NAME!!! - its not changed from what I can see.
Thanks for all the timely input. I have changed my screen name, at least according to My Account / Profile info and the Welcome bit at the top of this page. Maybe the change isn't retro active to existing posts...
Re: screen-name - I had a similar bit of confusion getting the right thing to show up - there's some setting you've missed I think - perhaps its the "Show" radio button in your "Forum Profile"?
