Strange behavior in NX Studio using color control points. When I select a color control point and place it where I want to make adjustments, the adjustments don't appear where the control point is located, but somewhere else on the image totally unrelated to the the area I'm seeking to adjust. As can be seen in the attached example, I placed a control point to brighten the backlighted goat, but the adjustments appeared in the sky in the upper left corner of the image. I've never seen this kind of behavior using color control points in previous Nikon software. What's going on here? I'm using version 1.0.1 of NX Studio.

I haven't used this feature until you mentioned it.

Here's a picture of how it behaves on my system:

Yes, that is how it supposed to work and as it has worked with me for many variants of Nikon's software, but as I showed in my submitted image, the control point often is in one location, but its adjustments appear elsewhere in the image. It doesn't fail 100% of the time, but it fails enough to become a problem. I have checked to make sure that there is only one control point applied to the image, so that I am not somehow adjusting a different control point. There seems to be no rhyme or reason as to when or why this anomaly occurs.

Sorry @Blue, I didn't mean to imply you didn't know what you're doing.

Wonder if it's a 'conflict of interest' with some other program you have running in the background.

I find NX Studio runs quite slowly on my Windows machine.

No problem; no offense taken. I have tried to isolate and figure out under what circumstances this happens, but it is truly random.
