White Balance and Raw conversion
« on: June 29, 2012, 11:02:44 AM »
With ML I can set the white balance to some pretty extreme numbers and also control the individual RGB values. But when  importing these files into the various raw converters I sometimes run into problems:

Adobe Camera Raw 7.1 (PS, Lightroom) 2000-50000 K  -150,+150 tint
Dx0 Optics 2000-20000 K -100,+100 tint.
Aperture 2000-10000 K -50,+50 tint.

There are of course a few that goes under 2000K:

Capture One 800-14000 K -50,+50 tint.
LightZone 1000-40000 K -20,+20 tint.
Corel Aftershot Pro 1500-10000 K -150,+150 tint.
Bibble 1500-10000 K -150,+150 tint.


Anyone know of any other programs?

I know Picasa seems to solve stuff quite ok, Pixelmator similarly and the preview of mac as well.

I run into the same problem when shooting in IR with a 2000k adjustment. Everyone tells me that the Canon software that comes with the camera should process the RAW very well without the color shifts, but I can't get the software to work on a Mac.

I've resorted to just shooting in JPG while using the temperature adjustments. The colors are spot on from the lcd display to importing on the computer without color changes.

Did you notice any difference if you went above 100.000 ?
