    Bought a a7iv recently and ran into the same issue with ARW editing. Was this ever resolved? Otherwise I can send some sample files.

    One batch I shot recently with Sony 200 - 600 mm 2x teleconverter seemed to all show the same black boarders. It seems to me it was due to how Luminar processes the ARW format, because it showed a slight delay for the black boarders to pop in. It didn't ruin the photo but it was irritating to crop the boarders out in order to export the photo.

    I haven't tried Sony's viewer for those photos so I could be wrong, it could be a Sony thing

    Having the same exact issue on a Sony A7IV camera...it's been three months since the original post and I've yet to see a solution listed. Might ask for a refund.

    When loading the image it's fine, when done the photo shifts to the left and the black bars on the side of them as with the screenshot the person above has shown.

    This is a known issue that our team is working on fixing. It occurs with several camera models, including Sony A7 IV. As of now, we don't yet have a precise ETA for when the fix is going to be available. As a possible workaround, we can suggest shooting as Uncompressed RAW.

    I understand that this is quite an inconvenience, and therefore, if you'd rather get a refund for your purchase, our support team can assist you with it at skylum.com/support.

    Hi!
    Our specialists still investigate the indicated aspect. However, due to the circumstances in Ukraine, there is no information concerning the exact dates. Your patience is highly appreciated. We will remind the responsible department about the relevance of the demand.

    The same issue with Sony a7 IV. This wouldn't be a big problem if the Luminar doesn't crop the photos on opposite sides from the black bars. I am losing a pieces of the photos.

    Here in January 2023…now having this exact problem on my Sony a7r V. Very sad to come here and find this issue has gone unsolved for a year. I’m willing to forgive a whole awful lot, but this is potentially a dealbreaker if it isn’t resolved.

    Hi Member!

    The thing is that we fixed the issue in one of the previous updates. However, the new camera software was released - v1.10, which raised the issue once again. Our developers are working on it, but we'll appreciate you sending us your sample images.
