[Sticky] Which image formats are supported by APP?
Hi Mabula, I just bought APP and didn't realize it doesn't support DNG yet, but glad to see its imminent. A further wrinkle is that Pentax DNG format does not include the forward colour conversion matrix so I believe an inversion has to be performed on the matrix they supply. Anyway, are you addressing this Pentax anomaly ? - it seems no other astro processor out there is, including my beloved Nebulosity 🙁 However I continue to use Pentax (K-5II) because it has such a good sensor.
Any idea of when the 1.074.2 version will be released? I really like this software, but I can't drop 130 Euros on software that requires me to convert my Olympus RAW (.ORF) files to TIFF files as the first step in processing. Too much trouble, and too much disk space.
P.S. A modest suggestion: as you add new camera RAW capabilities, issue interim beta versions.
I am using APP on a trial basis on a MAC and have only a few days to go on my trial licence. So far I have not been successful in processing any picture yet. I am on Mac OS Mojave 10.14.6. When I open the working directory, which is on an external SDD (Samsung T5), APP does not show me any file. The files are all Nikon .NEF taken with a Nikon D850 camera, which is on the list of supported .NEF files.
Thanks for your help.
Thanks Vincent. That seems to wrok better now. I managed to get the lights, the darks and the bias loaded. Now will try out the next step. Sorry for this type of beginners questions.
The soon to be released APP 1.076 will have much extended RAW file support, including Canon CR3, Pentax PEF, Olympus ORF, Panasonic RW2/RAW, LEICA RWL, RAW.
I am working now to get the first Beta release of APP 1.076 to be released as soon as possible.
