Hi, I´m using Lightroom 6. Shooting the last mont with a Nikon D850. Because of NEF files, i downloaded Adobe DNG Convertor. After first Convert, I was able to open and edit the DNG´s in Lightroom. After second session of shooting, after I convert the new files to DNG and trying to open them in Lightroom, the Lr was starting but desapers after 20 seconds. I tried it diffrent times also to change directores etc, but Lr was unable to run the DNG´s.
I aslo didn´t get a error massage. In the starting process, Lr just desapare. But without trying to run the DNG´s, Lr was running perfectly. Also the first imported DNG was no issue to edit, save or whatever..
I thought, it´s a Lr issue, so I uninstalled it a installed it new. But with same negative result. To make the story short, I reinstalled the whole windows, than installed Lr. again. Than Adobes DNG converter and again. First Convert and Import was with no issue and than after that, exactly the same problem with the new DNG´s. The first Import was still there and no problem to work with.
I don´t wan´t to upgrade to the new Lr cause it´s sadly not in my budget to pay monthly. Thats why i buyed the last CD version. And till know i was totally happy with it. I don´t know if its important, but Im using Win10 prof. and by Lightroom is telling by checking the updateds, that theres no updated available.
Please had someone the same problem and now´s the solution for it? (PS, sorry for my english)
Thanks to every one who can help.
For clarity. Just launching Lightroom Classic, not trying to import, not doing anything other than starting Lightroom Classic.
Does it start? Or does it try to start then disappears?
Yeah, if Lr is starting normaly without DNG. Edting, evrything possible, no issues
Thank you. Its running now normal. Thnak´s for help.
Just a hint to check on when you are using the Adobe DNG Converter, in the popup dialog the option at the bottom "preferences" there is an option to select the Adobe Camera Raw compatibility. Lightroom 6 is compatible with Adobe Camera Raw 9. ; so you need to select an option that will allow LR 6 to read the DNG conversion.
Converting your original raw files to DNG format is not some sort of magic solution. Please get informed before you choose this option, too often I see users advise "just convert to DNG and you will be fine".
See the screen capture, it shows the current default. Choose your preferences wisely.
Thank you very much. It seems to working. You saved my day. Thank you!
