Now, I'm no expert, so correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think turning my photos teal green constitutes an improvement over version 2's raw processing:

    Any chance you applied a Tungsten preset?

    Does this stick if you scale the Viewer? What happens if you delete and then update the Preview?

    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?

    I take that back. I thought it worked but eventually it turned green also.

    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.

    I'm an idiot. Did a lift/stamp on the raw adjustment and it fixed the pics, guess it's a workaround for now.

    *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:

    <USER>/Library/Application Support/Aperture/

    There are a couple of files there:

    Adjustment Chain Presets.plist
    AdjustmentDefaults.plis
    AdjustmentPresets.plis
    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 have the exact same problem, in my case it is with older images from my Canon 30D.

    Removing these files from the Application support folder indeed solves the problem for now, but Apple needs to bugfix this.
