    Hi Cornelius, thanks for the feedback!

    Do you find it's necessary to exceed ±5 stops adjustment regularly when editing these files? And would you be willing to send an example HDR DNG to us (via support@monogramcc.com) so that we can test this with LrC?

    Thanks!

    Hi Andy - yes it's absolutely necessary. Files from the Ricoh Theta Z1 needs to be pushed to +6-7 all the time. For theses files, Monogram is currently not usable. 

     

    Going to send you a file. Would be nice to enlarge the exposure range for HDR files.

    PS: Also HDR files, stacked by Lightroom are using the +/- 10 stops range for exposure in the meantime. Depending on the bracketing heavy + pushes are needed.

    Thanks Cornelius! That makes a lot of sense. Will look forward to the DNG and will escalate this to my colleagues in software.

    Hi Andy

    just wanted to ask, if you received my mail last November with the DNG-HDR for testing?

    I'm still looking forward to an update of the Monogram Creator software which includes the full +/- 10 stop for exposure of DNG-HDR files.

    Cheers - Cornelius

    Hey Cornelius, thanks for following up. I see that we didn't receive the file—likely due to a filtering rule against file transfers—so I reached out from an alternative email address. Looking forward to testing with the file and getting a fix out.

    - Andy

    Hi Cornelius! Wanted to let you know that Creator Alpha has been updated with ±10 stop support for HDR-DNG files.

    Dials and Orbiters should just work after the software update.

    Sliders may require you to go to open the Slider Settings window, choose "Customize" from the left-hand side, and then adjust the slider range to ±10 stops. After this point it should work as expected with both ±5 stop standard files as well as ±10 stop HDR-DNG files.

    Finally, there's no need to install Creator Alpha if you'd rather stay on the stable release—this feature will be coming to the stable release shortly (2-4 weeks).
