Compare view anomolies - oversharpening and inconsistent zoom sizes

    I'm pretty sure that noise and sharpening is not shown in browse. I'm not at home where I can check the user guide to be sure. It is in there, I'm just not sure which modes are affected. 

    I've already reported the attachment problem in this forum. My work around is to refresh the page and then the photo will drop. If you already have text in the box, you need to copy it before refresh or you'll lose it.

    Thanks Rick Sammartino, I tried a refresh and no luck.  But I see you're a member of the ON1 PhotoRAW Users Group, so I can post the screenshot there so you can see what I'm talking about.

    I can't say for certain what's going on, but images in the compare view are visibly sharpened with a lot of despeckling, which is very reminiscent of NoNoise AI with the settings cranked up.  And these are fresh raw images with no prior editing applied.

    The Compare view seems to get buggier as I play with it more.  In addition to the alleged sharpening, clicking magnify on an image may enlarge most images to 100% and some others to 50%, even with "Match All" and "Lock Pan and Zoom" selected.  I also performed a reset of ON1 settings to no avail.

    What kind of GPU do you have? Is it powerful enough to support multiple previews of large raw files?

    My system uses an AMD Ryzen 5 5600-6 core processor, 16 GB RAM and an NVIDIA GeForce RTX3060 GPU, so it should have plenty of computing power to handle the graphics load.  If you can hop over the FB page, you can see an example where changing the view modes from Filmstrip to Compare activates the sharpening.

    At the risk of belaboring the point, but there were no edits on my part applied to any of these images.

    The images that didn't zoom to the same size, are they all the same type? If some are raw and some are jpg, they would be different resolutions. The zoom out would be 'fit' which would make them look the same even though they are not.

    Thanks, just thought it was important to cover the obvious.

    I believe there is a problem in how the program is handing the graphics buffers when Compare mode is used. I see the same kinds of weirdness, one picture stays small when the other is zoomed even though the Lock option is set. One image will be clear, the other will be less so. At times only 1 image will be presented at all.

    All we can do is keep reporting it to support.

    Rick Sammartino - good point, but in this case these were all CR3 raw files and from the same burst sequence as well

    Brian Lawson - the obvious is the best place to start, and sometimes what's obvious to one person isn't always obvious to the user.  At least it seems that I'm not missing anything.  I think I'll go ahead and report this and see what they have to say.
