Did PL 1 have MRW support?

(Bob Koure) #1

I was just going through some old raw files. When I got to the ones produced by a Minolta Dimage A2, PL2 could not read them. I vaguely remember that PL1 could read these.
Is that right?
If so, how do I get the installation files for that version?
I had a copy of PL1, but uninstalled it. I imagine my PL1 license is still valid.
If I’m misremembering, and PL1 cannot read MRWs, nevermind…

DxO Optics pro (and DPL now I think) has never read only JPEG from Minolta Dimage A2.

Correct. No MRWs in DxO (either version). Too bad.

You might have to try and see if you can use (find?) a converter to change them to DNG?

I already have the Adobe DNG converter. Going to try it out on a few to see if MRW->DNG-)PL does a better job than MRW->ACR->PSCS6 (w Neat Image).
I’m guessing it won’t be worth the time/trouble. That series of cameras had tiny sensors and so were plagued by short noise if there wasn’t enough light - so my results would hinge on whether PL treats DNGs as raw files or not - and so makes its raw noise reduction functionality available
I’ll update either way.
