I filed a support request for this but wondering if anyone else has had this experience. This is what I wrote in my request:
“I just purchased Mask AI and admittedly started using a challenging image to first work on because I have successfully used ReMask on it in the past when it took me many hours to create a good mask. I was hoping I could do it a lot faster with Mask AI. The image I used has lots of foliage across the top of the image where it meets a featureless overcast sky, which I was replacing with a stormy sky. At a point where I was happy enough with what I was seeing in Mask AI, I saved my results. Oddly, everything that I saved as a composite regardless of format (tiff, jpg and png) and color space (SRGB, ProPhoto) shows countless artifacts around the leaves. I attached a jpg of my original Nikon .nef image. as well as photo proof of the problem. Thanks.”
Thanks for your reply. Here are more details. I have used Mask AI as both standalone and as a plugin in both Lightroom 6.13. My windows and PS CS5.1. I have tried all the refinement tools multiple times. I am running Windows 10 Pro (64 bit), have an old Intel I7-2700K 3.5 Ghz, 8 core processor, 64GB RAM, and a GeForce GTX1660 w/6GB VRAM
Application & Version: Topaz Mask AI Version 1.2.2
Operating System: Windows 10 (10.0)
Graphics Hardware: GeForce GTX 1660/PCIe/SSE2
OpenGL Driver: 3.3.0 NVIDIA 441.66
CPU RAM: 32735 MB
Video RAM: 6144 MB
Preview Limit: 7808 Pixels
The artifacts don’t show up inside Mask AI. The image looks clean but after I save it, I see that its loaded with them. The last of the 5 photos shows what it looks like in Mask AI.
The 1st image shows the quick result from Luminar 4 for comparison and has none of these artificats. There’s a lot I don’t like about Luminar and prefer Mask AI if only I can do this attached image.
The 2nd is a jpg of the nef image that was imported in to Mask AI.
The 3rd is what the image looks like in Photoshop.
The 4th is what it looks like in Lightroom
