I have just purchased a new Fujifilm X-T3 & cannot upload the RAF files to Lightroom, I can on my X-Pro2.
I have updated the latest versions of Lightroom & mac up dates too, still no luck.
Please can any one suggest a solution?
I have exactly the same issue with my XT3.
Presumably if I shoot in JPEG rather than RAW, Lightroom will be able to process the JPEG files out of the camera? (I can test this of course, just wondered if anyone had tried it).
Yes, that’s gonna work. The JPEG sooc is a no brainer for Lightroom here.
You May want to go with Capture One for Fuji Express for a while. It’s free of charge and allows basic adjustments for your Fuji RAW from the X-T3.
Having said this, I fell in love and just started evaluating C1 Pro as it seems to me to handle Fuji RAW much more better than Lr does/did since I started using it.
Sorry to say, as I really like the Adobe Ecosystem!!!
Seriously - Iridient X-Transformer does a great job. See my post above - and yes, it does make the files larger (and if you are a pro shooter shooting hundreds of frames, it is probably not practical) - but lightroom reads them and Iridient X-Transformer should probably be in your toolbox anyway. At $29 - it is well worth it.
No tool does it all.
The fuji jpegs are gorgeous - but sometimes you want the raw stock.
Am I the only one that has issues with Capture One? Most of the files get imported, but some of them are badly imported, like having a very purple tone or something like that.
To be honest I have created so many presets, invested so much time on LR, that it would be hard for me to switch so easily to another software
No import errors with Capture One Pro here so far, but I've only been testing it since the weekend. However, I have used it on a lot of XT3 and XT20 files without issue, both RAF and JPG.
I did some test shots this weekend and I had some strange results, I even tried Luminar, just for the sake to open files, and some files open some others don't...
I downloaded Capture One Pro Fujifilm and my XT3 RAF files are rendered with a strong purple hue. I've never used the application, but after half an hour of tweaking settings and googling solutions, I can't resolve it.
I have never had that kind of problem with capture one. I'm not sure what would be causing that. I downloaded and I'm using Capture One Pro, not the Fuji version.
MCB1975 as BertVDK mentioned this seems to be connected to images taken in sports mode. It is definitely a bug in Capture One and I already reported it to them. I am pretty sure that they will update it at some point. For now you could use the X RAW Studio. Connected via a USB3.1/Thunderbolt 3 port the transfer and processing is really fast and much better than on older Fujifilm cameras. It is a very basic tool as you can only use the in camera modifications for the film simulation, but the settings are very powerful. Especially the Shadow Tone can push blacks extremely good. When I am not 100% happy with the colour I either choose something close to the style I want and add finishing touches on the exported JPEG via VSCO, Polarr, GIMP or Darktable. Sometimes I just use ETERNA as it is the flattest output and reacts very good to filters and colour LUTs.
No, you’re not the not the only one. ¾ of my files are purple as well. It seems that those are the pics taken in so called “sports modus”.
All I am getting on my card is the folder FFDB when opened I get FFXFER.Dat
Iridient X-Transformer.app does not work with this information.
The images were captured in both raw and jpeg and show up on the camera screen.
What am I doing wrong?
Capture One processes the X-T3 raw files beautifully. You can try it free for 30 days if you need to process the files within the 4-6 weeks being estimated here for Light room and Photoshop to be compatible.
