So I’ve began to start using the unclipped export feature of Rawtherapee for when using for raw video processing, and noticed that it 16 bit float gets messed up when imported into other programs such as Davinci Resolve and Affinity Photo, but looks fine when viewed in Rawtherapee.
32 bit float seems to work fine in the other programs, but 32 bit intermediary seems like an excessive waste of space, and would make fitting such intermediaries on my hard drive for big projects more cumbersome. (I already know to transcode to a 12 bit video format, and delete tiffs, even just having them once in high file size is cumbersome).
I know that some of the non - foss program behavior is out of people’s knowledgebase here, but I was wondering if anyone had any ideas.
Example of how it looks. The flatness isn’t the problem as contrast can always be restored. The problem is all the color fireflies I get around the dark areas, as seen in the picture.
