    hello ProPanda, hello to all,


    here are my RAW and JPEG files (204,9 MB) for evaluation:


    and here is a video showing these false blue colours from LED light sources. You can see the comparison between in-camera-generated JPEG and RAW in Aperture and how it responds to some variation in the settings (German menu language):


    To ProPanda: I played around with all possible influences you can use in Aperture for minimizing the problem and couldn’t find any really working solutions except:


    Using Brushed Pixel Catapult plugin and developing the RAWs with an external RAW editor (preferred DXO)


    Or shooting RAW and in-camera JPEGs and using the in-camera JPEGS as a basis for further layer work in Photoshop using blend mode Colour. If you try this, be sure that any lens distortion correction inside the camera settings is off. But this is not perfect because you have to get the right color temperature while shooting, what is a big problem in surroundings using heavy effect lights.


    The best would be to wake up Apple with as many feedback hints as possible. But I am really afraid that noone at Apples developing team is really interested in this.They do not realize that event photography is one of the main fields of photography and for all the event photographers out there Aperture is no longer usefull because the LED effect lights are now spread all over the world. 3 years before, there were only conventional hot lights with coloured leaf filters in use and everything was fine.


    Beside the LED effect lights the problems also occurs in beamer computer screen projections. Newest beamers use a kind of LED light source with such a wide gamut, that Aperture fails too in developing RAWs of these scenes. In my download is an example of that.


    Thanks to everybody, who sends feedback in this case to Aperture too. I hope, we all want that Aperture stays alive and gets rid of such severe problems.


    Best regards

    Thanks Wolframs - I defer to your superior experience with this problem    Who knows, maybe they might be listening as they develop Aperture 4, although you would have thought they would have solved the problem for Mavericks...


    Well, I will download the trials for the other Raw convertors for a weekend test drive.
