I’ve noticed a fairly disappointing issue while trying the trials for both Studio 2 and Denoise AI. For some reason, the dynamic range of my photos seems to drastically reduce while inside Studio 2 and after exporting from Denoise AI. Here are some examples:
Fixable colour inconsistencies aside, I think it’s fair to say that the highlight detail is significantly compromised when the Topaz products are involved. This is really unfortunate, since I love the downright magical noise reduction created with Denoise AI.
I’ve tried exporting to .tiff, .png, etc. before using Denoise, however the noise reduction results are far superior for me when using it as the first step. It’s also much simpler to fully process images that have been denoised.
Is this a bug, or am I doing something incorrectly?
