True. But unfortunately that's not why the image is green.
I hadn't made any changes other than to click "Reprocess," and I only did that because the gamma appeared to be off and the blue sky slightly purplish after the Library update.
For the record, the images are DNGs from Canon 10D raw files, and Aperture 3's RAW Fine Tuning brick does correctly identify the camera as "Canon EOS 10D."
As an experiment, I reset all adjustments and clicked "Reprocess" again. Same result. Green.
Yeah, it sticks in both cases. And oddly, the thumbnail updates immediately, but the actual image in the viewer kind of takes its sweet time and only updates if I do something radical like enter full screen mode, or load a different image and then come back to it. Although the exact steps it takes aren't consistent.
Have you tried to use the Aperture 2 Raw processor - if it was like in Ap 2 and you had Ap 1 installed previously you could swap between the two processes - I got this info from a video tutorial so I could be wrong.
Have you tried exporting a jpeg from Ap 3 and seeing what it looks like outside of Ap
If you have Photoshop installed have you sent the image to Photoshop via PSD or Tiff to see how PS sees it.
These are just diagnostic tests.
I am seeing exactly the same problem with my Aperture 3 library. My files are mostly Canon EOS 5D RAW files. If I click reprocess they get exactly the same green cast.
One thing I tried was to export and import the master RAW file. It seems that if I export master from the library and then drag that into another project inside Aperture then it properly seems to properly handle the file.
Any ideas on how to address this?
My Raw Canon 5d images show the same green tint. However, if I click the Reset button for the RAW Fine Tuning on the Adjustments Tab, the picture clears up.
If I toggle from one image to another and back, the image says it was adjusted in an earlier version of Apple's Raw processing and needs to be reprocessed. Doing that, causes it to go green again. It does appear that I have access to the advanced features for this image though... that supposedly required the A3 reprocess.
Also, I can't select a lot of photos and make the reset change to all of them... it only appears to take affect on the last pic I selected. Still experimenting.
*SOLUTION FOR MY PROBLEM*
I noticed something when working on this. I have two different cameras that do RAW. A 5D and a newer Rebel T1i. I noticed that the Rebel adjustements showed up as Apple - Camera Default and the 5D didn't. I remember playing with this back in Aperture 1.x
So, to get rid of that what I did was goto Application Support in your USER account.
In my case is:
There are a couple of files there:
Adjustment Chain Presets.plist
Raw Decode Presets.plist
I moved them out of that folder instead of deleting them just in case. Fired Aperture back up and now the 5D shows as adjusted with Apple - Camera Default
Ran re-process and NO green hue anymore.
I can confirm that deleting the Raw Decode Presets.plist from ~/Library/Application Support/Aperture solves the green problem. Well done, Rafael!
Unfortunately, this doesn't cure all of my woes. My images are still opening with heightened black levels and some color problems, namely purplish skies.
Also, this doesn't explain why the "Reprocess" button is available for my images when the 10D is not among the cameras for which updated processing is supposed to be necessary.
But we're definitely getting somewhere. Cool.
