Bug Report - Preview Resolution Changes Raw Images Gamma in "Linear Working Space"
Since a couple of updates I've had this weirdest glitch.
On imported RAW images, when the preview resolution is set to anything less than "Full", the layer's gamma suddenly gets waaaaay off.
This only happens if "Linearize Working Space" is checked in Project Settings.
I've also reproduced this bug with .dng instead of .RAF, so the RAW image format does not seem to matter.
Currently using AE 18.1 on windows 10, Camera Raw is up to date and this glitch happens whether GPU acceleration is on or off.
Unfortunately I can't seem to find on which version thig bug appeared, since I do not have access to anything prior to 17.7 and the glitch is still present there.
It is possible to compensate the layer's gamma offset manually, but it's still a major workaround to get the preview working properly.
I have attached two images and also made a small project to show this issue. If anybody wants to look into this, you can simply switch the composition_01 resolution from "Half" to "Full" and the bug shoud be pretty clear.
Here is the project: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ensmhOuLroMKAdCmpdrynHDOw8J40TjH/view?usp=sharing
Thank you for helping me out!
Thank you for reporting this issue. We are able to reproduce the same color shift when changing the Composition’s Resolution and an internal bug has been created. Our team will investigate a fix for a future version of After Effects.
