Hi all, I’ve recently opened with RawTherapee 5.3 a raw file with its pp3 sidecar created with version 4.2, after having processed the file in v5.3, I’ve noticed that the output is different compared to the one I processed times ago with v4.2. The old one for me is better, maybe I’ve missed something or I need to switch on/off something to have the same result.
I have attached three images: the -old is the one processed with v4.2, the -new-auto is the image processed in v5.3 without altering anything in the pp3 (RT automatically switch off manual color denoise), the -new-manual is the image processed in v5.3 re-enabling manual color denoise (with same parameters from v4.2 pp3 file).
The smooth light transition around the Moon is more delight in the -old image, the -new-auto is very similar to the old one the the light transitions are less visible, the -new-manual instead is very different, it looks like a wrong quality coding of the jpeg output, but I have the same results for tiff output.
Why these different outputs? Am I forgetting something?
