Nikon Z9 raw
Do you know when On1 photo Raw will be compatible with Nion Z9 raw?
The company hasn't said anything yet. It will depend upon how long it takes them to reverse engineer the new RAW format the Z9 is using.0
A big thank you for your reply0
On1 Raw 22.5 only supports Z9 Lossless Compressed files. It does not support either High Efficiency compressed files. How disappointing! So you have to save 55 meg files instead of 21 meg files. Lightroom does not have this limitation. Why does On1 have this limitation?0
Because the camera manufactures help Adobe with how to decode their RAW formats and do not provide that same help to ON1 or other software houses. That means ON1 has to reverse engineer the format themselves and that takes time.0
Probably because Nikon have not released the information needed to decode these files, so On1 and others, other than Adobe, have to back engineer the compression and that takes time.0
Nikon compressed HE RAW formats are based on intoPix ‘s TiCoRAW.
It is they, not Nikon, who need to update the SDK. At this time, intoPix only offers the SDK for x86, not ARM (such as Apple M1). This is why you do not see the support.
And Adobe apparently only offers preliminary support on x86, not ARM.
So go to the intoPix website and bug them about an ARM SDK.0
Some time over the Summer, intoPix released the M1 libraries for the TiCoRAW SDK. Estimates placed a working solution available to end users sometime in Autumn/Winter 2022. Whether/when this applies to On1 or any other specific application, I can't guess.
The various RAW processors keep talking about waiting on Nikon. I do not know if this is just pointing blame, less educated forum marketers posting 'not me,' or if there is some other step that requires Nikon intervention.
It doesn't do me a whole lot of good to shoot 21Mb RAW files, only to have to convert them to 145Mb TIFFs/DNGs before I can actually edit them.0
You can check On1 supported formats here...
On1 2023 says "support for more cameras and lenses" with a sneak peak "coming soon."
We're less than a week away from launch, can we clarify if On1 2023 will include support for those compressed RAW formats?0
