I'm seeing an issue with images from a recent shoot where strong banding occurs in the highlights. The images are shot against the setting sun, the subject underexposed. Small sample is attached, with and without recover highlight hue, no processing performed. Last one from competitor without any processing.
1) Even without processing, the issue is visible. Processing makes it worse. Different profiles have small impact, all show banding.
2) As suggested by the support, adjust highlight hue is turned off. That makes it better, still far from ok.
3) Support states it seems like a limit of the processing engine.
4) Any other engine (LR, Apple on board, Affinity) does not show those issues.
The images are RAW DNG from a Pentax K1. Does anyone has similar issues? Is it connected to the specific camera? Any idea for fixing it? It seems like recover highlight hue is bugged (confirmed by the support) and without it, theres not enough tonality left to smooth the sky...
