I saw the release notes stating that noise reduction and sharpening fixed, but it is not. Anyone have a solution?

Is it the same problem as before Lr5.2? (reiterated in release notes of Lr5.3) i.e. not working when exported at 1/3 source dimension or less? Or, is there some other problem??

It looks to be a variation of the same problem. I will take a raw file, apply noise reduction and sharpening, and when exported, the full effect is missing...meaning either some nor none of the noise reduction take effect. To get some noise reduction, I have to take the noise reduction value to 100, and detail to 0, and even then, when exported to jpeg or tiff, the exported file is only a fraction of the effect seen in the develop module.

This is a serious problem.

Can you provide a raw file that shows the issue, using something like www.dropbox.com and posting a public download link to the file?
Also post what values you have used for the various sliders in the Detail area, so we can try the same process to see how it works for us.
