Pressuring Phase One (Trying to get compressed RAW support for Fuji Files)

Since I was kinda impressed by Capture One in previous blog posts (here and here).  I have decided to pressure Phase One to develop support for compressed Fuji files.  I found this information on their forum (here)

no-support

 

That was posted yesterday (my time).  So it’s recent information.

 

So, I decided to message them with my own query, here’s the correspondence (so far):12

At this point I was tempted to ask them to ask Brian Griffith the ONE guy who did Iridient (which has support for compressed RAW files already) for help, but anyway…

I will update this post as they respond and I know more.

In the meantime I encourage you to contact Phase One support to hassle them a bit about this.  The squeaky wheel gets the oil after all.

Well, that’s that I suppose.

Basically either they don’t care or they really have no idea what’s going on or they just want to keep their business their business.

Anyway, nice of them to give an answer even if it says nothing really. HAHA

 

 

 

  • Hi Adrian !

    look what i got – quite creative ? this licensing thing didn’t seem to stop Iridient from supporting compressed RAW …

    quote phase one support dd 12/03:
    “We hope to support this in the future, but the compression Fuji uses is licensed from a third party, and that has created delays in our ability to implement it.”

    let´s keep ´em crossed – CO´s otherwise a great all-in-one SW

    best rgds

    • Ha I think they just thought no one would care. Let’s keep up the pressure!

      • weird … if they don’t solve it it´s gonna cost me double the storage space (uncompressed Fuji RAW´s weigh in at 50 mB vs. compressed 25 mB)
