Magenta color cast on Panasonic GM1 raw files

Posting rules: It shouldn't need saying, but... play nice. Please keep your discussions civil. You can disagree, just don't be disagreeable. And, of course, all of the usual stuff like no spamming. Tex adds: I'll be rigorously enforcing this as we go along. We're probably going to be a small community in a little lifeboat, so we can't have members at each others' throats. This is for the sake of the project as a whole. So when you post, pretend you're speaking in person with your very wealthy auntie who has always treated you wonderfully and currently lists you prominently in her will. I won't be tossing anyone out of the forums because we are all in this together (except spammers: immediate membership cancelation), but I'll delete suspect posts right away.

Magenta color cast on Panasonic GM1 raw files

The raw files are from a Panasonic GM1 (.RW2 extension). LightZone version is 4.0.0 (860b0ba). Operating system: Windows 7 Professional, SP1, 64-bit.
The colors are correctly displayed on the Browse module but show a strong magenta color cast on the Edit module. This doesn’t happen with other raws from other camera makers that I tried.
From what I read this might be caused by the version of DCRAW.
Is there a fix? If not, will LightZone update automatically or is there something I have to do?

Hello Pecolpan,

Hello Pecolpan,


I would suggest downloading the beta 9 version for the future 4.1 release and seeing what happens with that.


If you install it in its own folder you will be able to check without disturbing the 4.0.0 release.


dcraw has been updated during the beta programme and there may have been revised RAW tome mapping tool settings. (I'm not a Panasonic camera user so am not instantly familiar with the current state of play for those cameras.)







Thanks, that solved the color
