Raw image files shot with identical, manual exposure settings are not matching after develop sync is applied (360° panorama shots with nadir shot). I think I've narrowed the problem down to specifically the highlights slider.
Link below to two Sony raw files, shot with exact same f stop, ISO and shutter speed, manual WB. If you take the highlights slider down to say, -50 on the image ending in 179, and then sync that with the other image (182), the second shot gets much darker. In order to stitch these, I need them to match. (I realize the floor is darker than the walls, but the floor is not matching between two shots after dev sync).
