Hi.
Does it support Pentax pixel-shift RAW files?

After it worked for some time PI didn't want to startup anymore. (pop-up at startup telling that I need to reinstall it)
I uninstalled and installed again, not sure if it is related to this code.

Hi.
Exactly the same for me. Since this update, I'm no longer able to launch Pixinsight using my project file. It always requires an msi file. Sorry.

That's all for now. The RAW module, along with an updated Debayer tool with X-Trans support, will be included in the next version of PixInsight, which will be released soon for all platforms, including FreeBSD ;) I really need to know how the new RAW module works in the real world, so *please* let me know anything you find out as soon as possible, be it positive or not. Enjoy!

Juan,

Maybe I'm the only one who picked up on this, but are you somewhat pre-announcing a soon to be V2 of PI or a point release?  I saw the other post about another version where you mentioned something possibly during the summer.  The reason for the question is I'm currently on the Trial license.  Reading the licensing agreement indicates that those purchasing PI within a window of time before a new version would get the new version for free, while if outside the window, it is an entire new purchase price.  I'd hate to miss the upgrade by a month or two. (and I do intend on purchasing, but now appear to have to consider timing)?  Appreciate any insight.  It is an incredible product..

I'm not Juan, but I think it's pretty much guaranteed there won't be a 'V2' anytime soon. Buy that license now :)

Thanks...  I think I was taking some of the references to a new version at 2.0 when in reality it was talking to a new point release, e.g. 1.8.5 ..

Jay

I've been using PI since 2012 and Ver1.6.4 I think or maybe it was 1.5 something. Anyway in that time with many, many new tools and scripts and complete rewrites of the core code there has not been an upgrade fee if that's what your concerned with.

What issue are you talking about? I'm running the new module on 2 systems, one with Windows 7 and the other Windows 10 without issues that I know.

There were a couple of users here earlier last month that had issues after installing, it possibly related to MS patches.

Wondering if the issues were resolved before i dive in.

As far as I know ??? there has been no update to the module and I can't say that I've had any problems. All my Windows computers are always up to date on all MS updates and hardware driver updates from other vendors. If you are concerned that you would not be able to recover from a software problem when installing a module that has not been officially released then my suggestion is don't install it. That is always my suggestion for anyone dealing with non-official ,beta or development software.

Availability of the RAW module

The new module is stable and has been thoroughly tested. However, since this module provides critical functionality, and given the complexity and difficulty to test it on a large amount of different raw formats, I prefer to have it extensively tested in real-world scenarios before releasing it as an official update. For this reason you have to use our development update repository to install it.

I have also tested this module for all my Sony A7s images taken last week in Chile
I had to integrate again my "old" bias dark and flat I still use. Maybe the decoding is not exactly the same.
But all is working fine (used drizzle bayer procedure)

Ok. I understand. I guess worst case is I have to reinstall ripley.  The fact that you have had success with it is a relief. I often use a canon 1DX mark ii and have been having some issues with the production raw module. Mostly having to remember to set some manual settings each time before processing images with a different body.

I’m hoping the new module will at least detect the body and preset some of these automatically.  I’m sure there are other benefits to the upgrade as well.

Just a follow up that the raw update went smoothly on win10 and was able to read my 1dx mark ii files as well as after the march MS patch rollup was installed.

Now to figure out where i want all of these new settings to be.  :)

Hi There. Two days ago I installed a Trial version of PI. I use a Fuji X-T2. In format I hit the "Pure Raw" option but when I open a file is black. I guess it has to do with the X-trans sensor of the camera. I have read here that it was not possible to open these .RAF files in PI but now there is a new RAW module that allows it. Does anybody know which should be the settings to open these files, if possible?
Thanks

Hi Mendi,

With the new RAW module you can open Fuji X-T2 raw files without problems. However, unfortunately the current Debayer module cannot interpolate X-Trans frames.

The good news now: I have a working Demosaic module, which will replace the current Debayer module in the next version of PixInsight. Demosaic implements the same X-Trans interpolation algorithm as libraw does, but in a fully parallelized version. This means that X-Trans frames can now be used just as Bayer frames throughout the whole preprocessing chain, from ImageCalibration to DrizzleIntegration. If you and other X-Trans users are interested, I can make a prerelease of the new Demosaic module, along with a modified version of BatchPreprocessing to support X-Trans demosaicing, through the update-devel repository.
