With the upgrade to Mavricks and Aperture 3.5  I hoped my problems with RAW (ORF) images were over, but I am getting this again. Shooting RAW+JPEG and importing directly into Aperture, I'm seeing some image pairs like this:

I've gone in and deleted the plist, cleaned up the Aperture Library, no luck. Any suggestions?

    Are you applying some sort of preset on import?

     

    If you hit the 'm' key to see the master, is it still that color?

    Brian,

    have you installed tonight's latest Aperture 3.5.1 update and the new raw support? It is spposed to correct some bugs.

    You need to be a little more careful with terminology. Saying that the RAW files are "corrupted" is implying that Aperture is rewriting your original raw files and making them unreadable. This would be a very bad thing. That does not seem to be the case, instead, you are seeing a bad raw conversion. Which is pretty bad, but not as bad as the former.

    works with the Aperture team at Apple and I'm sending them some images and they will take a look.

    That is good to know, Brian. Let us know, what will come of it.

     

    Meanwhile, have you tried to adjust the raw fine tuning adjustment? I found with my Canon raws, that it will help a lot to adjust the "Hue Boost" in the Raw Fine Tuning adjustment brick to correctbover saturate colors in my raw images.

    If Aperture actually corrupted the original raw file, and it was your only copy, you are totally out of luck. No other program would be able to save you.
