I've been waiting for Aurora 2019 to continue working on a HDR I've done. As soon as I installed 2019 I opened the mpaur2 file but it didn't look right, I opened 2018 in another window to compare and they were totally different. I decided it might be an issue with presets so I ran the original images through both versions.
I did underexpose the images as this was a panorama with the sun on one side, but the histogram in 2019 looks very different. (In the end I couldn't use the side with the sun as there was a stitching problem, my drone must have tilted.)
Here is 2018 above and 2019 below:
I hope you can see they are completely different. In 2018 I only needed to adjust the exposure by 0.43 in 2019 I have to go to 1.43 to get the same light
I'm also struggling with the presets, there seem to be fewer presets and all the names have changed. Is there any reference to explain the changes?
Finally to finish on a positive, the difference in noise on that image is like night and day, here is a 100% zoom of both:
