I’m struggling with highlight recovery, trying all the workarounds suggested (should we need workarounds??) and noticed that the Exposure compensation options are greyed out. I use X-trans files, is that the reason why?
That is a known limitation when processing x-trans RAF files.
Will this be available soon? Seems like an essential tool to do proper highlight recovery in PL5 Without these options, X-trans users are pretty must lost here
They are not present on this M1 Mac for X Trans, not if we are talking about the “Correction” dropdown where all options are greyed out.
Yes, that’s what I meant: the Exposure compensation “Correction” dropdown list, DPL5, Win10, X-Trans
Yes, it’s a technical limitation for X-Trans on both platforms MAC and Win: Exposure Compensation Auto modes are not available for X-Trans same as PRIME.
But you can use Smart Lighting instead of Exposure Compensation.
What exactly do you mean by exposure compensation auto mode? Please add a screenshot to eliminate misunderstandings.
As you can see from the screenshot I posted above, all tools work on my Mac.
Your screenshot display manual mode and it’s available as expected, but Auto modes are not available like this:
I think what Dirk is talking about is this…
… where the “automatic” options are not available.
I must admit, this is something I have never really found useful, much preferring to use Svetlana’s (@sgospodarenko) idea of using Smart Lighting with a couple of zones for brightest and darkest areas. This gives a wonderful “flat” image that can then be much more easily enhanced using the tone curve and fine contrast sliders.
