This is my first post and I’m looking for some thoughts on PL6. The annual round of software updates is upon us and I thought I would have a look at PL6. I’m aware that fuji file processing was only in beta phase for the last version, but can’t find a great deal of info regarding how well fuji files are processed. I’m seeking people’s opinion on whether fuji processing is still beta or and how people find the quality of processed fuji files.
Thanks for any replies.
Fuji absolutely is supported in PL6 unless I’ve missed something.
I’ve literally just finished editing some Fuji RAFs in PL6.
As far as I’m aware the only thing not yet supported is DeepPrime XD but thats stated to be coming in a future PL6 update (its discussed elsewhere on the forum and states it on DxOs support I believe.)
The original DeepPrime from PL5 still works just fine in the meantime however.
The feature that does not work for Fuji files yet, but will be added in a point release soon, is support for the new DeepPRIME XD noise reduction tool. While the new DeepPRIME XD is not currently usable with Fuji X-trans files, the current DeepPRIME is.
Using Nik Collection is like eating out: either you like what’s on the menu or you don’t - it’s is a very personal decision. There’s a 30 day free trial for you to find out if you like it.
Removing Nik Collection from a Mac is tricky though. The uninstaller removes the main components, but leaves a lot of stuff behind. DxO therefore provides an additional cleanup tool for WIN and MAC.
I have not tested them, so I can’t say if they really scrub thoroughly.
