Iridient X-Transformer 1.6.4 adds Fujifilm X-T4 Support and More

Iridient X-Transformer 1.6.4 is now available with support for the Fujifilm X-T4 and updates for other recently released models (X100V, X-Pro3, X-T200) to sync them up with the very latest Adobe DNG Converter 12.2 (and CC) versions for color profile and white balance calibration metadata.

This update also modifies the Lightroom plug-in so that normal (JPEG, TIFF, etc) images can be used for selection of images for conversion to DNG, as long as the associated RAF is present along side the standard image. This makes selection of images with old versions of Lightroom that may lack support for newer models RAF much easier, particularly if shooting JPEG+RAW mode as you can just import the JPEGs and use them for selects right from Lightroom.

Iridient Developer 3.3.6 and X-Transformer 1.5 add Fujifilm X-T30 Support and Major Improvements

Iridient Developer

The Iridient Developer 3.3.6 update has been released with support for the Fujifilm X-T30 and a fix for the baseline exposure of some images shot with D-Range Priority set to Auto on the Fujifilm X-T3 and Fujifilm X-H1.

Iridient Developer 3.3.6 for macOS can now be downloaded here.

Full release notes for this Iridient Developer update here.

Iridient X Transfomer

Iridient X-Transformer 1.5 is now available for macOS and Windows!

This new update can be downloaded from at Iridient web site here.

This release includes:

  • support for the X-T30
  • Major improvements to lossless compression speed especially on high core count systems. The lossless image compression stage is now up to 2-8x faster!
  • Support for lossy DNG compression. Use of lossy compression obviously can potentially have some impact on file quality, but it can also have a pretty radical impact on DNG file size. With this new option the DNG file size can actually be even smaller than the camera JPEGs while while maintaining the terrific DNG/RAW editing flexibility and often producing better final image quality
  • A bug fix for the baseline exposure levels of some images from the X-T3 and X-H1 shot with D-Range Priority set to Auto.

Iridient Developer 3.3.4 and X-Transformer 1.1.1 Updates

The Iridient Developer 3.3.4 and Iridient X-Transformer 1.1.1 updates are now available for download!

These updates fix an issue with the new D RANGE PRIORITY modes found on the X-T3 and X-H1 models. The X-Transformer update also brings the DNG baseline metadata values (color, white balance, exposure, etc) inline with the newest Adobe software values for recent camera models (X-T3, GFX 50R, XF10).

Iridient X-Transformer 1.1.1 for macOS and Windows can now be downloaded here and X-Transformer releases notes are here.
