    Hello Martin,

    I had a similar issue importing a DxO generated DNG file into Capture 1. The exact same file imports fine into LR. I believe the issue is with C1 and I saw some comments on the web suggesting the same.

      Hi Donald,

      It’s quite possibly a Capture One issue, but it’s hard to say for sure. I’ve opened a ticket with Topaz to see what they say. If necessary I’ll contact the Capture One team as well. I’d like to get to the bottom of this, but I’m not sure it will be possible.

      I should mention that I have no problem importing DNG files created with other applications. This is why I’m not sure that it’s a Capture One issue. Personally, I only see this issue with Topaz-generated DNG files.

      I’ll keep you posted via the Podcast.
