Support for the new NIKON RAW-Editor "NX Studio"

Yesterday NIKON launched a new RAW-editor which will replace NIKON Capture NX-D in the future.

As you know NX-D worked with sidecar-files so this was not supported by PM 5 and PM6.

The new NIKON NX Studio works with sidecar-files too BUT the user has the choice to use sidecar-files or like it was the good old way with Capture NX2 to store the editing in the NEF-files!

It would be great if camerabits can have a look at it. I made a brief test today and when I edited a NEF-file of a D850 (without using a sidecar-file) PM6 did not regognize the editing, as I expected.

I would be very pleased to get my complete "old" workflow back, this was perfect for me and I think for others too ;-) if there is a chance to let photomechanic read NEFs which are edited in NX Studio (when sidecar-files are not used and everything is stored in the NEF).

Thank you for tanking the time for this.

Nice greetings

Let me check on this and get back to you. It may be a few days because of the weekend.

OMG, no need to hurry, Marziah. Enjoy your weekend first ;-)

Thank you for your super fast reply. Be sure that I am aware that things like this will need some time to evaluate.


We're still looking into it, but my guess is that we'll find a way to support it if we can.
