The RAW file format implementation of the current version (01.08.06.1475) of PixInsight is based on LibRaw release 0.19.2. According to https://www.libraw.org/ the Nikon Z6 is supported not before LibRaw release 201903 snapshot. So the answer is: not yet.

Thank you veru much Bernd. Now I convert NEF files to TIFF files and I can use pixinsight.

Hi,

a few days ago I ran a dataset of a Nikon Z6 with BatchPreprocessing - no problem at all.

Best regards!

I now have a Nikon Z6.

A quick test shows that PixInsight already supports the following raw file formats:
•14 bit Lossless compressed
•14 bit Compressed
•12 bit Lossless compressed
•12 bit Compressed

Uncompressed is not supported but I can't think of a good reason to use uncompressed anyway.
