Testing Lightroom Migration to RAW 2020, but only worked with RAW 2019 ?!Answered
Base: Using MacOS Catalina, Version 10.15.5
I created a small catalog in the latest Lightroom Classic (ver 9.3) to migrate some edit'ed images over to ON1 Raw 2020. 13 images. (before I start moving a lot more over...)
I found the Migrate to ON1 tool action in Lightroom Classic and executed that.
- ps.. the online help for the migration tool doesn't highlight that the Migration action is a push action.
- I for some reason kept picturing the action as a pull action, and was trying to find the commands in ON1.
The migrated images, with the edits, were found with and under ON1 Photo RAW 2019. I was a little surprised that the ON1 RAW 2019 application came up with the edit'ed files applied, but assumed these would show up also with ON1 RAW 2020.
I exit'ed On1 RAW 2019, fired up ON1 RAW 2020. but the same files in that directory don't show the applied edits, which show fine with 2019 product. Is there another step needed here?
Goal: Moving the edit'ed Lightroom files to be available via ON1 360.. and future edit'ing and control is with ON1 RAW 2020
You'd have to ask tech support to be certain but it sounds to me as if the Lr plug-ins you used were for the 2019 version of the program. I can't see plug-ins for 2020 sending their results to a different program.
I would double-check the version of the plug-ins installed in Lightroom's plug-ins folder. You can find copies of 2020's plug-ins in the applications folder at /Macintosh HD/Applications/ON1 Photo RAW 2020/Plug-in Files. Move copies of those files into Lr's folder and give it another try.0
Thanks Brian, that worked.
Both versions of the plug-ins (2019 and 2020) were in the Lightroom Classic directory.
I deleted the 2019 plugins from the Lightroom directory, re-started Lightroom Classic, re-exported the Lightroom-based photos I wanted into a separate new catalog (and a new place on the hard drive), re-started Lightroom with that new catalog, and from there migrated that new catalog to ON1.
This time, ON1 2020 came up, and eventually (10-15 minutes) the edits on the 13 photos were seen as the migration process finished in the background. The new directory then had both the .NEF (Nikon) and the .on1 files.
From ON1, the directory was then cataloged and also published to ON1 360. And the other devices could see the edit'ed files.
Done. Off to play with other aspects of ON1 360 and ON1 RAW 2020.
