"Lightroom lost its mind. Help!"


Clarks Summit, US
          

I am using Lightroom 3.6 in a tethered shooting enviroment.
The tethering software is "Control My Nikon"

The software brings in the image and puts it into a watched folder.

Ok, I just switched from using a laptop which worked perfectly to a desktop computer in order to get a better graphics display.

The problem now is that I set the white balance in the camera @ 2850
LR is set "as shot"
When the image is brought in to LR the module changes from "as shot" to "custom" with a color temp of 5600 or so.
The camera is set at 2850 and the lights are CFL and 2850 is a good color balance number.

The tethering software has a viewer and it displays at the correct color temp.. This is very strange the way the setting on the module will change to this customer color temp that makes no sense at all.

Any thoughts ???

I am not at my postprocessing computer, and I don't even have LR 3.x installed anymore. But when you have the import dialog open, there are options for processing the photos on import. For example: Auto Tone. If you disable all processing on import, the photos should be imported "as shot".

Regards, Antero

Is it possible that since you set the camera WB to a custom number instead of Auto that the program picks that up as being "custom"?

No, the reason that I say that is because it was working perfectly on my laptop... I changed over to a desktop and reloaded LR etc. and the problem only just occurred.

I read something on an Adobe forum about this happening but the thread did not have a resolution to the problem.

You might try looking at the meta-data (without LR).

I you don't have a meta-data reader, you might try downloading and installing "Photo-ME" -- which is a REALLY nice program that does not seem to have had any support in a few years

In Photo-ME you would open the file in question, then look for "White Balance". There is a simple CTRL/F find capability and you just need to type "white" to it and it should find it. See what IT says.

Very strange -- I hate when things like that happen!
