No more access to the end of Exiftool data (Pentax?)

Post by Markorki » Thu Nov 28, 2019 11:26 pm

Hello !
I'll try to use the template ;-)
_____________________________________________________
Subject: 0.94.1: <no angle exiftool data >

XnView: MP 0.94.1 - 64 bit
OS: Linux 64bit

Two "Angles" , Pitch angle and Roll angle, are located in the exiftool data after 2 groups of values, "AE metering segments " and "Flash metering segments", but these 2 groups are very long and seem to impair acces to the following data .
This bug was already present in 0.94, but probably not in 0.93 (not sure, I don't use this feature so often)


Effect: Cannot correct pictures taken not perfectly horizontal or vertical when shooting because I don't know the value of the rotation angle to apply.

To reproduce:
1. select a picture
2. select Information tab/Exiftool tab
3. look for "Pitch angle" : you don't find it

Actual behaviour (bug): Display of parameters ends after "AE metering segments " and "Flash metering segments" parameters.

Expected behaviour: Display "Pitch angle" and "Roll angle", at bout 90% of the list.

______________________________________________________

I suspected exiftool could have been modified by an update, but I tried this in a terminal:

marc@PC-markorki$ exiftool -h MM_2019-02-17_09-57-41_P-K50__008629_0r.jpg | grep Angle
<tr><td>Roll Angle</td><td>1</td></tr>
<tr><td>Pitch Angle</td><td>7</td></tr>

So, the two parameters are still available through Exiftool command line.

But the same command where you replace "grep Angle" by "grep Segments" delivers a very long output.

If you need a Pentax K5O picture : http://sebmortum.free.fr/images_publiqu ... 6750_0.jpg

Hello,
it's ok for me, bug 0001692 fixed in 0.94.2 : the angles in my transmitted picture are -45 (roll) and -26 (pitch) ;-)

so long, and happy new year !
