Iridient X-Transformer 1.0 Released With Fujifilm X-E3 Support

Iridient transform is a great product for Lightroom photographers looking to maximize image quality without moving over to Iridient’s Developer product. It has improved quite a bit since we last covered it on FujiAddict and is now final. You can Download It Here Today.

There is a lot of competition out there today though, ON1 and Picktorial are both encroaching on the specialize RAW converter software space with excilent products.

1.0 – October 12, 2017 (Maintenance Release)

  • New Features:
    • Support added for the Fujifilm X-E3.
  • Bug Fixes:
    • Fixed an issue with some versions of macOS (10.9 or earlier and 10.13) where the first image converted would sometimes would be all black or mostly black.
    • Fixed a Mac specific issue where images located on some NAS shares could not be loaded.

1.0 beta 4 – July 13, 2017 (Maintenance Release)

  • New Features:
    • A new Lightroom scripting plug-in is now available for sending images to Iridient X-Transformer for conversion which avoids some of the limitations and disadvantages of using Lightroom’s external editing functionality (or “Edit In”).
    • A new option has been added to set the default DNG camera profile to either Iridient Standard or Adobe Standard. Iridient Standard should be a closer match to Iridient Developer, however due to inherent differences in the camera profile formats (ICC versus Adobe DCP) the default color rendering will still not be identical.
    • There is now an option to make the exported DNG file read only (or “locked”). This will prevent Lightroom from automatically writing metadata edits back to the DNG and will force use of sidecars for metadata storage.
    • There is a new option to translate the Fujifilm film style metadata into a Lightroom camera profile setting. This causes the DNG by default to load into Lightroom with an Adobe film emulation profile matching the camera settings for the RAF.
    • Fujifilm proprietary star rating metadata is now automatically converted to standard XMP metadata if the RAF does not have an XMP sidecar with a newer star rating value.
  • Improvements:
    • When working with an Edit In intermediate file from Lightroom with the “Preserve File Date” option enabled only the creation date will now be preserved. The modification date will be updated to the current time. This prevents Lightroom’s caching from becoming confused about the state of edits with the Edit In file.
    • Updated camera calibration and profile information for models newly supported in Adobe’s latest DNG Converter 9.10.1 updates (X-T20, X100F, X-A10 and GFX 50S).
  • Bug Fixes:
    • Fixed a Mac specific issue with setting the Save to Folder to a custom folder location.
    • Fixed some Mac specific crashing issues effecting older versions of macOS including 10.7, 10.8 and 10.9.
    • Fixed an issue with handling of automatic lens corrections metadata for vignetting where some lenses, particularly IS zooms, could show a notable under correction for vignetting. The results now should match up much more closely to the camera JPEGs and Lightroom as well.
    • Fixed a multi-threading issue with the sequence number based file naming when batch processing. Multiple images could be given the same sequence number and one would fail to be saved.
