GoPro .GPR files converted with Adobe DNG Converter are flipped horizontally.

When I use Adobe DNG Converter to convert raw files from my GoPro HERO 5 Black, the resultant DNGs appear flipped horizontally when viewed or processed with non-Adobe tools. 

This what I see when viewing the files with Photo Mechanic - a popular tool used to sort photos and embed metadata.


This is what I see when I attempt to process a DNG using Capture One Pro.

These are the setting I am using for the DNG creation.  Attempts with other settings do not seem to fix the flipped image issue.

Is this an Adobe Digital Negative Converter issue or an issue with the third party applications?

Hi Peter,

Sounds like it's an issue with the third party software:

There was a similar thread here recently:

From that thread:  "It is the responsibility of any software that uses the embedded previews in DNG format to apply the orientation."
