HAS ANYONE ELSE FOUND STRANGE GRIDS IN THEIR PHOTOS?
I have a SONY A7R and converted the ARW file to DNG with Adobe DNG converter. You can see the original DNG file below and I zoomed right in out of it trying to find any sign of a grid but there is nothing. It’s a clean blue sky!
First off Processing time on a 3.2Ghz i5-2500k, 16GB RAM, Windows 10 was 60minutes. Processed the same file on 2015 MacBook Pro 3.3Ghz, SSD, 15in retina was 30minutes.
But the bug I noticed was that the software created this strange grid in the blue sky. I will post 3 images to exhibit what I mean. I layered the original photo and the AI gigapixel file in photoshop and then exaggerated the grid with a simple curves adjustment so that you can see it better online.

Topaz AI gigapixel Image where you can see the light grid when zoomed in on the photo (Layer 0)
This is the image where I just did a curves adjustment where I increased the highlights and decreased the shadows so that the strange grid would be more visible. It’s so odd right?
