Support for Panasonic .rw2 RAW files?

Unread postby jpmccormac » 17.10.2008 20:03

Any chance that Helicon Filter 4.90 will be updated to support the RAW files produced by the (great) new Panasonic LX3 camera? There are some .rw2 sample images at the bottom of this page:

Still no RW2 Support :(

I was disappointed to see that Panasonic's .RW2 RAW files are not supported by default in ver. 4.91. Or, am I missing something in setting up the RAW decoder in Preferences? I have the latest Adobe RAW/DNG converter (ver 5.2) installed and DC RAW as well.

Have you selected Adobe as a default RAW converter in the Preferences?

User error?

Yes. I have Adobe as the default RAW converter but I get the error that reads "cannot load source file" when I select a .RW2 file. I'm probably not doing something right, but it's frustrating. Adobe RAW converter works fine with Photoshop Elements 6. ???????????

.RW2 Not Shown in RAW Preferences

Unread postby jpmccormac » 12.12.2008 03:59

When I go to Preferences > RAW > Embedded RAW Converter > RAW Format, the .RW2 extension is not available.

Does no one use HF to process Panasonic .RW2 RAW files? I guess I'll stick with Elements 6 and ACR. :cry:

We already added RW2 files (thanks for the sample!). New version will be published today.

Working Great on .RW2 RAW files Now.

Thank you!! Version 4.92 is working nicely - fast and stable even on my old XP machine. I converted this image from an .RW2 file that was skewed badly to the right. The rotation tool really helped.
