The details setting absolutely can have a positive effect on the so-called worms issue.



Yes, Dan - I am aware that you can change the Detail setting to blur the entire image in order to hide the artifacts, but the result is worse than just leaving the artifacts alone.

I've tested this extensively, and seen absolutely no benefit from playing with the Details slider, and I've even posted examples to prove it. If you are seeing something affected by the Detail slider in the manner you suggest, that just tells me you are not dealing with the wormy fractal artifacts in the first place - either that, or you just post these comments in the hopes of stirring up an argument...


Give it a break.

It doesn't "blur the whole image." The details slider has a particular kind of localized effect which in rare cases creates the worms effect. In these cases, using details doesn't "decrease blur" it creates false details in areas of low contrast, and random fine patters, typically mostly in the green channel.

Essentially what I'm doing is choosing the right details setting for the camera/sensor I'm using... something I've done with all of my cameras from multiple brands for the past 20 years in post. I don't use the same settings for old 5D files that I use for 5DsR files. I don't use the same settings for a 16MP x-trans sensor that I use for a 40MP x-trans sensor.

I still get excellent sharpness from the image. Typically, I may use a higher "texture" setting and/or slightly different radius/amount settings for the subsequent Photoshop sharpening that is part of my workflow.

The result is better. Not worse.

The investment some folks have in "proving" (believing) that this, that, or some other product or tool is uniformly awful and that anyone who disagrees must be incompetent is quite something.
