White balance kelvin in info panel
« on: September 04, 2019, 06:35:00 PM »
Hi,

I am running a trial version of Photo Mechanic Version 6.0, build 3331 (38ae33c) and I run Mac OS Sierra 10.12.6, 3.5 GHz Intel Core i7 with 32G of memory.

I'm trying to view the white balance color temp (kelvin) in the info panel.
I thought I saw it was an update in a recent release ... but my info panel only shows "Temp"

Is there a specific string for this?  I'm shooting with Canon 5D Mark IV. e

Looks like a bug to me.  It should follow "Temp" with a numeric value.

Rats - I finally accepted the fact that I was going to convert all my CR2 files to DNG so I could see updated previews in the contact sheet (a process that took over an hour for my last event) ... but I rely on that color temp info for certain things.

You think it's a bug in my trial version?  Or a bug in the latest release .. which means I have to wait for a future patch/fix?

ok - crisis averted. I can always open the image in photoshop and easily check the color temp.
Would be a nice feature to have in PM ... but not a deal breaker.

Thanks again for your quick response,
Sharon

The bug would affect all PM6 users and will have to be fixed in a future update.  Should be easy to fix unless Canon has encrypted the data.
