Image glitch: Split Images
« on: January 31, 2019, 12:11:02 PM »
Im on a Mac OS 10.11.6 using Photo Mechanic 4.6.9 with Raw images from a Nikon D5.  I'm getting distorted images in Photo Mechanic, but when i open the image in photoshop, it's fine.  See screen shot. Please advise.

I expect that the JPEG preview in your RAW files is damaged in some way and the reason Adobe's software is unaffected is because they're ignoring the JPEG data and are rendering the RAW file instead.  Photo Mechanic shows the embedded JPEG preview and does not render the RAW file.

I suggest checking the integrity of your camera card.  It may be beginning to fail.

Actually, when it first started happening I suspected it was the card. But it happens on any card.  I am beginning to suspect it's something in the camera. I thought maybe photo mechanic and my old system (maybe the graphics card?) couldn't handle the large files anymore (i also use the same cards in a D3s) and it doesn't happen.)   It can't be cause the files are large, because it doesn't happen on a D850, which the files are twice as large as the D5. I should probably try downloading on my home computer to see if it happens.  Thank you for your response.
