Recommended Posts

all the ones i have tried so far the picture always turns out different shades of pink.....

panasonic used to use the .raw format but apparantly they have changed it in the recent series of cameras...they now use .RW2 which apparantly is different..

I had one of my friends who is familiar with C# update the RAWFile file type source and now I'm able to open up .RW2 files and they look correct.

I can send you a copy so you can see if it works properly for you. If it does I'll post it as an update on the RAWFile thread (or create a new thread).

cool. it works now. the only problem is the white balance is getting readjusted. is paint.net doing that automatically or is the raw file loader doing that.

cuz i would like to keep the exposure level to what the camera has picture set for so i can do auto bracketing with HDR photos.

with my HDR stuff i take a normal exposure shot then one shot at -2 ev and another shot at +2 ev then i use HDR software to merge them.

if i load a darker image with it either your loader or paint.net is adjusting the brightness of pic up to a higher level when i want to leave it to what was set in camera.

can you make it do that?

let me know

thank you for your help on this i very muchly appreciate it...

Give this one a shot.

The plugin is currently using this set of switches: "-w -W -q 3 -c -T" (Use camera white balance, don't auto-brighten, use highest quality conversion, write data to standard output, use TIFF as output)

If there are any other modifications you'd like to see, let me know. For reference, the available options are listed below.

Usage: dcraw.exe [OPTION]... [FILE]...

-v Print verbose messages

-c Write image data to standard output

-e Extract embedded thumbnail image

-i Identify files without decoding them

-i -v Identify files and show metadata

-z Change file dates to camera timestamp

-w Use camera white balance, if possible

-a Average the whole image for white balance

-A <x y w h> Average a grey box for white balance

-r <r g b g> Set custom white balance

+M/-M Use/don't use an embedded color matrix

-C <r b> Correct chromatic aberration

-P <file> Fix the dead pixels listed in this file

-K <file> Subtract dark frame (16-bit raw PGM)

-k <num> Set the darkness level

-S <num> Set the saturation level

-n <num> Set threshold for wavelet denoising

-H [0-9] Highlight mode (0=clip, 1=unclip, 2=blend, 3+=rebuild)

-t [0-7] Flip image (0=none, 3=180, 5=90CCW, 6=90CW)

-o [0-5] Output colorspace (raw,sRGB,Adobe,Wide,ProPhoto,XYZ)

-d Document mode (no color, no interpolation)

-D Document mode without scaling (totally raw)

-j Don't stretch or rotate raw pixels

-W Don't automatically brighten the image

-b <num> Adjust brightness (default = 1.0)

-g <p ts> Set custom gamma curve (default = 2.222 4.5)

-q [0-3] Set the interpolation quality

-h Half-size color image (twice as fast as "-q 0")

-f Interpolate RGGB as four colors

-m <num> Apply a 3x3 median filter to R-G and B-G

-s [0..N-1] Select one raw image or "all" from each file

-6 Write 16-bit instead of 8-bit

-4 Linear 16-bit, same as "-6 -W -g 1 1"

-T Write TIFF instead of PPM

I think before I post this for everyone to see I might try to tweak the DLL to use a parameter file or something. Some of my images that are shot in low light produce a lot of artifacts and I have to use the the "-m 3" parameter for the images to render cleanly ("-m 2" still leaves artifacts but "-m 3" successfully eliminates them). I don't believe any of my shots done in daylight have the same problem so I think leaving it configurable would be the best option.

You might want to post a beta in the Plugin Developers section - get some free testing!
