Fuji X Raw Studio - how to convert?


Recommended Posts

I started using Fuji X Raw Studio 1.10.1 (previously I was at 1.3).  When I change the Film Simulation or Sharpness (etc) and click Convert - it seems to convert ok but when I look at my filesystem I have a .FP1, .FP2, .FP3 file - and I'm not sure that the .RAF file was modified.

Please advise and thanks

Update: Ah, I see that it creates a .jpg in addition to those .FP files.  Is there anyway to have it created an updated .RAF?

Actually, modifying the .RAF file is not recommended. That is the data the camera recorded, the convertors use this to make a copy in a different format with those changes you make so that you can go back to that original at some later time and use it as a baseline to make other changes.

If you export the changes as a jpg file, you will be able to “use it right away as a finished image”, if you export it as a TIFF file you can import it into an image editor with all of the image information ready for the editor. JPG loses some of that information in order to have smaller files.

Fujifilm’s Raw Convertor program is similar in name to to their Raw Studio, but only does conversions. If you are interested, the way it works is to keep a second companion file listing the most recent changes you make so that the next time you open that .RAF image in the Raw Convertor program, it applies those changes to the image on the screen. You can of course export a final jpg or tiff file as you wish.

As far as I know, it depends on which camera you have. Raw Studio uses your camera’s built-in processor to make the converted image, so if your camera can save files in the tiff format, that will be one of the options you have, otherwise you will only be able to choose jpg.

However, if you use Fujifilm’s Raw Converter software, you can always choose tiff:

Note: there are plenty of converters out there, some free, some costly, all of them have at least a slight learning time and you will find a lot of opinions as to which will give you the best results.

If you have any questions, just ask!

Hallo,

I've purchased a new X100V and would like to use the FUJIFILM X RAW STUDIO software.

After connection the x100v to my both computers Apple and HP-window, the FUJIFILM X RAW STUDIO is reconizing and showing in the left above corner the name X100V and the battery level, but not showing the files. I shoot both RAW and JPG together. 

Of course I've arranged the correct connection setting / PC connection mode / USB raw Conv./backup restore on my X100v.

How do I get the files into the FUJIFILM X RAW STUDIO?

Thanks in advance for your answer,

Kind regards,

Pim.

If you still need help. I had the same problem. Then figured out you have to first copy the files on your computer. After you connect the camera then you can open the files from the folder on your computer where you saved them. Raw Studio can't open the files from the card inside the camera, it only uses the camera to process the files that are on your hard drive.

    • You do have some options. If you want to use Apple’s Photos to take care of storing, managing the files and lightweight editing but want to also use an raw converter / editor with more “oomph”, you can do that as well: https://support.apple.com/en-us/102259 scroll down to the part about “Install Mac apps …”. Affinity Photo comes to mind: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R2Zt1NDfC7E https://affinity.serif.com/en-us/photo/ DarkTable, a raw convertor also has a dam built into it, you might like it. This program has a steeper learning curve than Photos does, but it is very powerful: https://www.darktable.org If you are inclined to do a little more asset management yourself, RawTherapee or Fujifilm’s Raw Converter are pretty good: https://rawtherapee.com https://fujifilm-x.com/en-us/products/software/raw-file-converter-ex-powered-by-silkypix/ p.s. Welcome to the forum.
    • If you are using a Mac have you tried Photos?  You would have to use uncompressed raw for Apple support. I wouldn't say its the best raw processor for Fuji - but it comes for free with the Mac and it works as a DAM.
    • Hello,  This past weekend I shot a weekend-long event. I took the X-H2S and the X-T30II as a back up to the X-H2S. The latter never failed me once, even with the brutal heat (though I got the overheating warning literally in the last 15 seconds of the last day of shooting). One problem I did have is that I wasn't expecting to have such a flurry of events, so in documentary/press-style I had to shoot very fast in rapid succession at times at night. My Godox (which I am starting to hate) did fail me. The recycle time was hit or miss, sometimes fast sometimes up to 5 seconds. I changed batteries twice, yet I got the overheating warning a few times and had to turn it off and on. Eventually I took out the X-T30II and used the back up flash.  I am guessing for these evening events, I'll probably need to opt for a lithium battery-operated flash in the future/different brand. Does anyone have a recommendation? I don't usually shoot with flash, or at least I haven't since my Nikon DSLR days. 
    • i don't have my x-t5 yet, but what I do with timecode challenged cameras is record 10 seconds of timecode audio on the front of the recording from a tentacle using the microphone.  Davinci Resolve can read the first bit of video file and set the clip's timecode.  Worst case, use Tentacle studio to give you the timecode to adjust the clip's timecode by hand.
    • I tried to use the "Introduce Yourself" option but it won't open. Obviously I'm new. I'm Linda. A friend sent me his Fujifilm X-E4 camera to use as a travel camera. I've just started using it and really am enjoying the feel of it and learning how to use the system.  I understand by reading some posts that folks like to use Capture One. I'm retired and on a fixed income. It's not even close to possible for me to pay those monthly fees. I'm an old Aperture junkie hoping to find a DAM that's so easy and clear to use. Is that possible?  thanks for your time
