View Full Version : EP1's raw files and lightroom 2
So the problem here is I cant open the EP1 ORF raw files in Lightroom 2. I have already updated camera raw and can open the files in Photoshop CS4 but nothing doing in Lightroom.
As I understand the language in the help file, Photoshop and Lightroom both use camera raw for opening and editing files and share that program collectively, so if I have updated it and CS4 is ok with it, is there something extra I need for Lightroom?
ps. I can see the files in Bridge too.
No one here has this problem?
I am no expert but I don't think the lightroom uses CameraRaw as cs4. From my memory, the LR always has its own update to support newer cameras
I don't know about Lightrooom 2, but I am pi**ed off with Adobe forcing me to upgrade to a new version of Photoshop every time I buy a new camera, just beacuse the raw files of my new camera require the latest version of Adobe Camera Raw, which of course is not compatible with my version of Photoshop. I have managed to escape this deadly spiral of imposed Photoshop upgrades by using the free Adobe DNG converter, instead of relying on Adobe Camera Raw. Adobe DNG Converter can be downloaded for free from Adobe's website and will convert all your ORF raw files into standard DNG files, which can be opened in any version of Lightroom. DNG Converter is very fast and works automatically on whole directories.
Why not just use the free Adobe Raw converter to convert the files to DNG and proceed from there?
I may do that, will see if the conversion process retains the information needed for lens corrections to DNG. And just to make things more fun, my photoshop is acting up with that notorious problem where when you open it the thing wants you to click accept on the license agreement and then doesn't do anything. So much for having a valid copy over a non valid copy.
That is probably an issue with your OS, sounds like you are trying to run it on Vista. I have never seen this on Mac.
nope still using xp over here. I dont use macs for personal reasons so duno, there are many topics online about this but no remedies, guess adobe is sleeping.
ps. one of the theories is that photoshop is checking an online database and then nullifying your key because someone else is using it, so I have a program firewall that catches anything coming in or out of my computer and yet photoshop is magically able to bypass it! *******s.
Most suggest deleting Adobe cache.db files. This is just a Windows security screwup. Little Adobe can really do to keep up with Microsoft's endless attempts at better security.
I have mostly heard this on XP where there was something probematic about the copy of Photoshop. You are the original owner? Was it purchased in Asia or the US?
I am the original owner of this key, I got it from the school I used to go to and the copy of photoshop was unopened and had an original key, but then again this is China and they can fake anything so that wouldnt surprise me. Repeated emails to adobe about this problem have gone unanswered or just with the stupid automated answers that dont answer your problem.
bah, oh well, it does seem that it is possible that my key could be used by someone else since it was a copy that came from a university.
Yeah actually I called them just now and they gave me a case number and told me to call back in 24 hours. Fingers crossed.
