If you have a current Cloud subscription then the next versions of the current LR 8.4.1 and PS 20.0.7 and the DNG Converter 8.4 apps, as Jim says, will probably be able to decode the files, and you just need to be patient.

 

If you really have LR 6.0 then it'll never be able to read the native raw files from a camera newer than when LR "7" (LR CC) was released; however, the next DNG Converter will probably be able to read them and you could always create DNGs that both the older LR and newest PS would be able to open.

Last Camera Raw update was 9/11/19. Updates are released approximately every three months. That's as close as anyone can tell you. Updates are never announced in advance.

Re: Sony a9ii raw files not supported by lightroom and photoshop?

Ouch!!!! Patience / frustration / I cannot work....

I have bought this camera for professional use.

BUT I still cannot open the raw files with Adobe. (Batch editing, grading etc...)

Does any one know what is happening and when Adobe Camera RAW will be updated?

The camera came out a month ago... I need my work flow back.

It looks like I am going to have to rent a A9 for my next job.... So frustrating.

(yes of course I can open my Raws 1 by 1 with the Sony software or Iridient but I need Batch)

Do you have an idea?

Yeah this is an epic fail by Adobe. The worlds largest camera manufacturer releases it's newest flagship and you can't use the files in Photoshop or Lightroom. And were coming up on a month now.

Re: Sony a9ii raw files not supported by lightroom and photoshop?

Hi,

 

It's been over 2 weeks since the new camera is released in the market. How long will it take for LR and PS to update the software so I can follow my normal workflow to edit the pics from the new camera?

 

Thanks!

Re: Sony a9ii raw files not supported by lightroom and photoshop?

i just updated to 21.0.0 and still photoshop won't recognize my sony a9II RAW Files.. Only way I can do anything is to use the converter to DNG.  I hope the next update solves the problem, but the update from last night didn't

The results from the beta DNG converter are not useable; way too much noise.  Hopefully a new update is coming soon.

Re: Sony a9ii raw files not supported by lightroom and photoshop?

I'm using the Sony Edge Viewer//Editor to select files and export them as TIFF...no edits.  Then import the TIFF into Lightroom.    This seems the best alternative for my workflow without having it buy another software package.

Re: Sony a9ii raw files not supported by lightroom and photoshop?

I just bought the brand new A9ii and unable to open my files in any Adobe software! I'm having to use photomechanic to cull and hopefully convert them from Capture One 😞 Anyone with an update please let me know ASAP!

Re: Sony a9ii raw files not supported by lightroom and photoshop?

only way I can is to use the DNG converter or other software converters to DNG or TIFF then import into Lightroom or Photoshop..  I saw there was an update on Photoshop today, but after it updated, I opened it and tried to import RAW from a9II and still NOT coompatible.. Bummer

Re: Sony a9ii raw files not supported by lightroom and photoshop?

I got a new macbook and downloaded the new DNG update but it wouldn't read the a9ii raw, I had to look for the beta and download that in order for the DNG converter to recognize a9II raw.. so frustrating..

Take note that when using the DNG converter you choose a folder containing raw files but don't open the folder. If you open the folder containing the raw files you will receive a message indicating that there are no raw files to convert. The DNG converter works at the FOLDER level.

Even the DNG files are bad and noisy. I just gave up and starting using Capture One. I’m not married to Lightroom especially since Capture you can do much more with editing and control of skin tones.
