I have had issues getting Luminar to work properly with some of my plugins. With some, like the Topaz set, I generally do not have a problem but some just do not seem to work. These plugins work properly with Photoshop, but not Luminar. Two examples:
Luminar has distortion correction functionality for raw images in the RAW edit filter but it does not work well enough with Fisheye lens distortion to fully correct the images. I use a FE lens as an UWA lens and try to correct the distortion in PP but when I call the PTLens plugin all I get is a completely white image and PTLens does not even start. See this screen shot:
2) Dxo's ViewPoint 3
One alternate to PTLens is Dxo's ViewPoint 3. This plugin allows an extremely wide range of adjustments, including enough correction to fix a FE lens. When I call the ViewPoint3 plugin it does start, and it displays the image correctly. I fix the image and save it back to Luminar, but get this:
As you can see I end up with the choice of a white image or a black image. Since both of these tools work properly with other editors I assume the issue is with the Luminar plugin functionality.
How do others correct this kind of distortion?
