Adobe Lightroom compatability

Postby ccartter » Thu May 04, 2017 2:44 am

I'm looking to buy the Archive Suite to process about 10k kodachrome slides and B&W 35mm negatives. I use Lightroom to manage my 65k digital image library. My question is whether Adobe products like Lightroom can open the HDRi RAW files that are the product of SilverFast? Or if I need to save them to another format using SilverFast, what file types are supported with batch processing? I'm nervous about buying into a proprietary file format with HDRi RAW, but maybe I'm not understanding something about how this could work.

Dear user,

No Lightroom unfortunately can not handle HDR(i) RAW files. They get damaged when they are being loaded by Lightroom and can no longer be processed by SilverFast HDR studio.

Kind regards,
Arne

And what about the second part of my question: If Lightroom can't open HDRi files, then what file formats can Silverfast save in that can be opened by Lightroom?

I'm looking for the file formats supported by SilverFast 8. I found this from the 2010 manual. Still accurate?

Dear user,

No that chart is outdated and has some errors in it. JPEG for example can not store 48 Bit data.

All other (non HDR(i) RAW) output formats should work fine.

Kind regards,
Arne
