Loading Canon CR2 RAW Files Broken?

Post by dbunna2 » 31 Jul 2019, 22:12

A guy on CloudyNights mentioned that he was having trouble loading Canon CR2 RAW files. Checking it out I installed the latest Windows version on SourceForge and found that true. I then loaded the oldest SourceForge version and loaded the CR2s with no problem.

FWIW I like the look of the program and how it annotates. I think I'll keep it around!

Tks

Edit...
And now installing the latest version I can now open the CR2s... puzzling!

I had the original problem on Cloudy Nights.

It's actually Nikon NEF files that are not available in the file open dialog.

My mistake.

Does ASTAP work with Nikon NEF raw files?

Hello Jerry,

I downloaded sample .nef files and they are converted (DCRAW) and displayed correctly. Just type *.* in the file explorer menu and load the .nef file. I will add the .nef extension to the file viewer. Probably tonight or tomorrow there will be a new ASTAP version with this included.

I have uploaded a new version 0.9.244 which includes the .NEF files at:

http://www.hnsky.org/astap_setup.exe

It is NOT uploaded to Sourceforge since the configuration path has changed and I first want to do some additional testing.

One thing to note is that both PixInsight and DSS have abandoned DCRAW on account that it has not been updated for over a year. I think both are using LibRAW now, which has support for the latest Canon and Fuji cameras.

I tested libraw yesterday and it is faster. The latest beta also supports CR3 format. So it will come.


Clear skies, Han

Nice one - LibRAW appears to support the Fuji X-trans better too.

Did you fix your Paypal donate button yet?

The Windows version includes now the beta version of libraw and supports CR3.

Linux version also uses now libraw, but you have to install libraw-bin

macOS is also modified for libraw. Cr3 is not yet supported.


The paypal button is fixed.

Regards, Han
