Hi - first time poster. I’ve been using RawTherapee for a few months now.
First, some specifications:
Sony .ARW from a7R IV
I noticed that my exported image (all formats and bit depths) retains the noise that I got rid of using the Noise Reduction tool.
This was a digitized negative, so I’m using the Film Negative setting (which only seems to work with the .ARW with all Raw Black Points at their minimum -2048, but that’s another topic, I suppose).
I’m happy with the image at 100% in RawTherapee, but the noise returns after export.
Here is a link with the .ARW, PP3, and an exported 8-bit TIFF: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1kvYWPb7lDQiSM1GXU7eMcmh4ubt1SlCA/view?usp=sharing
It doesn’t look like anyone has mentioned this exact same topic - was wondering if anyone has encountered this!
