Nik Collection and Optical Modules

After processing in Nik Collection, the TIFF file reports that the optical module is missing. Why is this happening?2020-10-23_16-01-19

Here’s my guess, Alex;

  • You’ve downloaded an appropriate Optics Module for your RAW file, and it was used in the rendering of the TIFF that you passed to Nik.
  • Now, PL encounters the TIFF for which it does not have the RGB version of the Optics Module - so, it advises that you need to download it.

Is that it? If so then you can ignore this request, because Optics corrections were applied to the RAW.

Hello Alex,

It happens because NIK app removes some necessary lens data when saving in TIFF format.

Of course, I’ll ignore it.

The answer is exhaustive. Thank you.
