This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Lightroom/Camera Raw: Improve chromatic aberration removal

When LR3 came out and I saw the automatic lens corrections, I was extremely pleased - finally I'd be able to click a button and fix all of the lens issues :D I'd been struggling with trying to fix the chromatic abberation (CA) in my shots, especially from my canon 50mm 1.2 - lovely lens, but not great CA.

12 months on and I'm finding that mostly the automatic lens profiles work great, but CA control is just pretty much non existent. I also have defringe set to ON too, and occasionally I'll use the colour sliders, but nothing I do will get rid of the CA in my shots.

So... firstly does anyone have any pearls of wisdom for fixing it on a global basis? If not, Adobe, please make this part of your development for LR4 - it's the only thing which is letting down an otherwise fantastic rendering :)

The CA removal that's built in now is for removing lateral CA, and it's quite effective. Removing longitudinal CA is not included and is a much more difficult proposition. It's possible that you're seeing that type, especially since you mentioned defringe.
