Color Correcting Mr Sid rasters

I am using the Mosaic Color Correction function.

  • I have placed all Mr Sids into a Mosaic dataset
  • Then I calculated Statistics with the mosaic dataset while in ArcCatalog (even though I already have stats calculated for these rasters, but this function does not read them).
  • I also created pyramids as required in the specs in ArcCatalog.
  • After I did this, the Mosaic Color Correction Color Balancing area becomes available.  Before calculating the statistics, It was grayed out.
  • At this point, I select the stretch (none), target (another MrSid located in a separate Mosaic Dataset), Balancing method and surface type.
  • After I select Correct Color I get an "Error" message, but I have no as to the issue(s).
  • Does the Target Mr Sid have to also cover the image to be corrected.  I don't have a corrected image for that area...If I did I would not be doing this process.  An older image of that area has five bands, whereas the new Mr Sid image has 3 bands.MrSid_ColorCorrecting.jpg


I have read several posts earlier in the week regarding calculating stats for Mr Sid, which was helpful.  I was glad I got to this point, but now I don't know what my issue is since I have no way of identifying what is causing the error message.


Any suggestions.  I have all the tiffs for my area of interest, but I was hoping to be able to use the MrSid rasters.
