TLDR: If you edit a RAW file in Lightroom, use the new Content-Aware Remove tool, and then process that RAW file using DPR2, you will get unexpected results on the DNG.
- edit photo in Lightroom (curves, color grading, masks, etc). Remove unwanted elements using Lightroom’s new Content-Aware Remove tool.
- File > Plugin extras > Process with PureRAW 2
- DeepPRIME, optical corrections on, DNG.
The DNG is added to my Lightroom catalog, complete with all Lightroom edits. However, the areas of the image reproduced by the Content-Aware Remove tool are heavy with artifacts, or leaves an opaque mask. (If I make new changes to the DNG using the Content-Aware Remove tool, it works as normal.)
Obviously the workaround is for the user to perform Content-Aware cloning after processing in DPR2 but wanted to make sure you guys were aware that Lightroom’s new tool has introduced a potential glitch.
