Accessing the plug-ins from host applications

(Eugene Cooney) #21

Hi. New DxO Photolab user here coming from Capture NX2. Can the Nik plug-ins be accessed directly from DxO Photolab 2? If not, are there plans for this integration?

Free Sharpener Pro works in XnView MP!

According to their press release you can from PL2


Select a file and click “Export to Application”, there select a NIK tool from disk and it should be opened with the generated output. There is no NIK on raw, without export yet. So NIK is always at he end of the processing currently.

OK, thanks. When I select export to application the only listed application is Capture NX2.

Did I install my Nik collection incorrectly?


There should be a button to lookup the NIK executables manually one by one on disk. Once they are selected a number of them is then stored inside the list until it overflows. To improve the whole thing is a known topic for DxO: NIK Integration

Got it. Thanks very much.

I am using this approach to make my C#-application extensible for other developers mybkexperience.

It works just fine but only in “one direction” which means that the developer who writes a new plugin can define methods and variables within the plugin and those will be imported to my application.

So my question is now: How can i access already existing data from my main application. A variable string test within the plugin?
