Is there any possibility to update my existing LR 6?

 

What I defenitely not want, is a subscription model.

The last and final update was released in Dec 2017 the number is 6.14 (fourteen). If you already have that version installed then the simple answer is no.

There is a free DNG convverter available from Adobe that will create DNG copies of your raw images that can be imported into Lightroom 6.14. But you won't have access to all the new tools that have been added to Lightroom Classic.

What EAXCT version of Lr 6 are you currently using?

If it is not Lr 6.14 then yes you "MAY" be able to Update to version 6.14. But nothing after that unless you subscribe to the Photography Plan subscription.

Thank you for the fast response.

My LR is already 6.14, which does not support my new SONY A7C 😞
So I'll have to switch.

Or you can use the FREE Adobe DNG converter program to Convert the RAW files from your camera to DNG files that Lr6 can read.

 

Google Adobe DNG Converter.

Oh yes, have forgot that.
I'll try out DNG as an intermediate format.
Thx for the hint.

Have made a script to import raws / jpg / mp4 from my cam with automatic .dng conversion.

Just as an idea, fits my specific workflow:

 

 

// import from Sony A7C

const FS = require('fs'), CP = require('child_process')

const Drive = 'H:'
const Source = Drive+'\\DCIM\\'
const Source2 = Drive+'\\PRIVATE\\M4ROOT\\CLIP\\'
const Backup = Drive+'\\backup\\'
const Target = 'C:\\users\\YourName\\Pictures\\'
const Target2 = 'C:\\users\\YoutName\\Videos\\'
const Clear = [Drive+'\\AVF_INFO\\', Drive+'\\PRIVATE\\M4ROOT\\SUB\\', Drive+'\\PRIVATE\\M4ROOT\\THMBNL\\']
const ClearXML = Drive+'\\PRIVATE\\M4ROOT\\MEDIAPRO.XML'
const Converter = 'C:\\Program Files\\Adobe\\Adobe DNG Converter\\Adobe DNG Converter.exe'

if (!FS.existsSync(Backup)) FS.mkdirSync(Backup)
var files = []
FS.readdirSync(Source).forEach(sub=>{ sub = Source+sub+'\\'; FS.readdirSync(sub).forEach(file=>{ files.push(sub+file) }) })
FS.readdirSync(Source2).forEach(file=>{ files.push(Source2+file) })

function loop() {
    var file = files.shift(); if (!file) return finish()
    var name = file.slice(file.lastIndexOf('\\')+1).slice(0,-4), ext = file.slice(-4), tmp = name+'.tmp'
    var sub = FS.statSync(file).mtime.toJSON().slice(2,10).replace(/\D/g,'')+'\\'
    console.log(sub+name+ext)
    var target = ('.MP4' == ext) ? Target2+sub : Target+sub
    if (!FS.existsSync(target)) FS.mkdirSync(target)
    if (!FS.existsSync(Backup+sub)) FS.mkdirSync(Backup+sub)
    if ('.ARW' == ext) {                        // convert raw
        //target += 'raw\\'; if (!FS.existsSync(target)) FS.mkdirSync(target)
        ext = '.dng'
        CP.execFile(Converter, ['-p0', '-d', target, '-o', tmp, file], {windowsHide:true}, then)
    } else if ('.XML' == ext) {                 // ignore .XML
        ext = ''
        setImmediate(then)
    } else {                                    // else copy to target
        FS.writeFile(target+tmp, FS.readFileSync(file), then)
    }
    function then(err) {
        if (err) return console.log(err)
        if (ext) FS.renameSync(target+tmp, target+name+ext)
        FS.renameSync(file, Backup+sub+name+file.slice(-4))
        loop()
    }
}; loop()

function finish() {
    Clear.forEach(dir=>{ FS.readdirSync(dir).forEach(file=>{ FS.unlinkSync(dir+'\\'+file) }) })
    if (FS.existsSync(ClearXML)) FS.unlinkSync(ClearXML)
    CP.exec('DIR '+Drive+' /-C', {windowsHide:true}, (err, sysout, syserr)=>{
        var free = sysout.match(/,\s*(\d+)[\w\s]*$/)[1] / 1024 / 1024 / 1024
        console.log(free.toFixed(0)+' GB frei', Drive)
    })
}

 

 This is processed with nodejs, should be possible also in Windows JavaScript, VBScript, PowerShell, maybe even in .bat.
