I am trying to use the embedded previews from my Sony A1 raw files.  I know they're there because I can open them with Photo Mechanic.  But when I use embedded previews on import the previews I get are nowhere near full size.

 

Does anyone know how to work around this, or is Adobe working on a fix?

TBMK The Embedded (camera) Previews only remain until such time as you Zoom ( 1:1 ?)  or enter the Develop module. Then LrC builds its own previews. The size of the (LrC) previews should be determined by your options in Catalog Settings.

Check your settings-

Someone else observed this a few months ago:

https://lightroomqueen.com/community/threads/sony-a1-support.42388/ 

 

The Sony A1 and Nikon Z 7 store two different sizes of embedded JPEG previews in their raws.  LR uses the larger preview for the Z 7 but the smaller for the A1.  It's a bug.

 

That person never filed a bug report. But your post here will constitute an official bug report (once the moderators move it into the Bugs subforum).

Maybe I'm missing something. But when I go to Import files taken by the Sony A1, I'm still getting the smaller jpeg preveiw. It's still not using the full size that the A1 embedds into the RAW file. 

I have changed settings as some users have suggested, but don't see a change.

I'm not observing that in my LR 11. I downloaded a sample Sony A1 raw and imported it, with the import option Build Previews: Embedded & Sidecar. When I then look at the imported photo in Loupe, it appears to be using the higher-resolution preview:

Screen Shot 2021-11-08 at 8.29.07 AM.png

 

Troubleshooting steps:

 

1. Do the menu command Help > System Info and copy/paste here the first ten lines so we can see exactly which versions you're running.

 

2. In the Import window, what setting are you using for File Handling > Build Previews?

 

3. After importing a fresh raw from the camera, go to Library and enter Loupe view (E).  Post a screenshot of your entire LR window (as shown above).
