DPP does not remove hot pixels

I have a 5 year old Canon 6D which has developed quite a few hot or stuck pixels.  I have done the "hot pixel fix" which is to invoke "manual sensor clean" for 30s which (supposedly) creates an internal hot pixel remapping.

 

When I open RAW astronophoto images in DPP, the stuck pixels are easily seen.  If I export a batch of photos to TIFF, the hot pixels still exist.  If I open my RAW images in Adobe Photoshop or Lightroom, the hot pixels are removed automatically.

 

It would appear that DPP does not remove hot pixels, but Adobe products do (automatically).

 

Any official word on this?

Re: DPP does not remove hot pixels

Can anybody confirm this behavior in DPP?  

 

I have found threads that state the same (RAW conversion in DPP does not remove bad pixels) from several years ago, but no one using recent (version 4 and after) versions of DPP.

I think that issue is pretty rare, because I know if I had it, I would get the camera repaired. 

Have you tried the “dust delete” process?  Or whatever it is called.

Re: DPP does not remove hot pixels

Hello heyjp, 

 

Another user suggested dust delete data and I think this is an excellent place to start with this particular type of issue.  If you experience multiples of these "hot/ stuck pixels" it's possible it's a bad case of dust.  Appending dust delete data to your images will enable Digital Photo Professional to automatically map out these spots on your photos.  The process is outlined below.
