Automatic Lens correction operation and Re-read Metadata

Lens Correction and Metadata

Automatic lens correction requires On1 to read the file to determine which lens was used to take the image. Unfortunately, for reasons I can’t nail down, On1 doesn’t always automatically read the lens information from the file.

The workaround, is
Browse > [file] > Photo > Read metadata from photo.

This gets the information into On1 so automatic lens correction can occur…
But there is a price… The price is that previous metadata is removed… an thus needs to be manually recreated.

It would be helpful to either have the Lens Correction correctly read the lens information intially (thus avoiding the work around) OR… have the “Read metadata for the photo NOT overwrite existing information.

    I have to do this frequently for older photos where lens information was lost due to version changes of ON1 or never read by PR. And it’s a pain to loos existing information in the metadata. I sounds like simple to to not over wright existing data like stars, colors or what ever, just insert the missing lens data.

    I have two fully manual lenses, which do not communicate any EXIF to the camera.
    In “Edit” it appears that a normal lens profile is recognised by it’s EXIF information.
    Not only that, you can access the full lens data menu, so that you could, for example, apply a Fuji profile to a Sony lens if you wanted to.
    In the case of a manual lens with no EXIF information, you are locked out of the lens profile data, which prevents experimenting with applying lens profiles experimentally to your manual lens.
    If we could access the lens data when there is no EXIF information it would be very useful, and would allow lens corrections to be applied experimentally to unrecognised lenses.
