DNG Codec - 64bit Win7

Creating a thread for 64bit Windows7 users to post in regards to support for the DNG codec on 64bit-Win7.


Currently 64bit nor Win7 is supported for the RC codec. Adobe supports 64 bit, in CS4,  LR 2.x and LR3 beta. I expect 64bit and Win7 for the codec.

For those who want to play with the unsupported RC codec on 64bit win7, it would be great to get comments on this thread with your experiance.

Re: DNG Codec - 64bit Win7

I don't undesrtand how Adobe can ask me to choose DNG over RAW and want me to lobby my camera manufacturer to support DNG, while at the same time not prividing me with a DNG codec.

Maybe this is a political game where Adobe wants to put pressure on Microsoft to support DNG.  If that is the case, it's a game that is being played at my expense and I don't like it a bit.

Re: DNG Codec - 64bit Win7

Hi,

i'd like to see 64-Bit OS users (Vista or Windows 7) being supported much better with codecs than they are right now. Adobe wants to establish DNG as the preferred RAW picture format and in my opinion it would certainly help to provide a codec that allows to quickly browse pictures in the Explorer - not only on 32-Bit Windows. Likewise Nikon unfortunately provides a NEF codec for 32-Bit Windows only. From my point of view it's really a pitty.

Our codecs for DNG, PSD, NEF, and CR2 support 64 bit Windows 7.  http://www.ardfry.com

Re: DNG Codec - 64bit Win7

Does it not seem ironic to anyone else that DNG is supposed to be this open format, yet Ardfly and Fastpictureviewer are, in the mean time, charging $30 for the codec?  Shouldn't Adobe be releasing this for free?

Re: DNG Codec - 64bit Win7

It's "Ardfry," which is a Gaelic (Irish) word.

DNG is an open file format.  "Open" just means fully documented, and the fact that it's supported by third parties lends credibility to this claim.  I don't think it logically follows that Adobe must provide support on all platforms.  They have provided a free 32 bit codec, and will someday get around to releasing a 64 bit version without a doubt.  In the mean time, we provide a fast solution that supports 64 bit Windows.

Since time is money, the codec will pay for itself in time savings.  The price is relatively low - a fraction of the cost of a decent circular polarizer, and you'll probably end up using it more than the polarizer.

Re: DNG Codec - 64bit Win7 - The Free Way

www.gnu.org - free developement tools

www.adobe.com/products/dng/pdfs/dng_spec.pdf - freely available DNG specifications

Cost: $0

Now you are all set to write your own free DNG codec

Joke aside, Adobe is under no obligation to supply anything for free, where is the logic behind that claim? The Word and Excel document formats are open and, unlike DNG, actual international standards (see ECMA-376 and ISO/IEC 29500), does this means that Microsoft Office should be free? Microsoft makes free readers but it's entirely at their discretion, and the same goes for Adobe.

As for 3rd parties filling niches and charging for their work, what's wrong with that? What FPV and Ardfry charge is pocket change compared to the work involved with writing stable and well-performing codecs, and as David implied is certainly also pocket change compared to the cost of any photographer's kit.

Re: DNG Codec - 64bit Win7 - The Free Way

I realize that Adobe is not under any obligation to provide anything for free.  I did however purchase Adobe CS4 Design Standard which as you know is not free, so I am a bit perplexed why they would not include the codec to see the DNG files in Windows Live Photo Gallery or other browsers that are not Bridge (unless I am missing something and there is in fact something on the CS4 disk).

I guess I was surprised that this open DNG format would not have more support if they want to see it grow like JPG did.  Good business for you though...

Re: DNG Codec - 64bit Win7

Since it looks like no one is going to reply to my new thread above regarding wonky RGB values and the Profile Editor:

I would like to know if there are issues regarding the use of DNG Profile Editor and Vista x64, as I described?

Thanks.

D.

Re: DNG Codec - 64bit Win7

Where can I get the RC codec to try?

The only RC codec I found was from 2008, and it only supports 32bit.

Re: DNG Codec - 64bit Win7

What advantages do people see in a 64 bit DNG?  I am asking as someone who just got a 64 bit Win 7 laptop three weeks ago.
