#22. "RE: Fork in the Road"
In response to In response to 20



Hello,

Good points!

>Peter I am not sure I buy your counter argument. I use 64 bit
>CNX2 and do not find the batch process "Clunky".

Hmmm... I think LR batch processing is light years ahead! Have you tried it on, say, 100 images from a shoot? There are quick menu picks and a history editor and presets during import that can be tied to camera serial numbers and selective copy and paste of settings, and the Synchronize function and the ability to run multiple jobs at once, and the ability to keep working during batch processing, and more...

>I cannot see how
>they could abandon the task of reading and processing NEF's.

Hmmm... I don't see why not.

>I find it meet
>all my needs.

That is important!

>I don't have to fool with XMPs or keeping my
>NEFs in the Adobe data base or converting to DING and all the
>other processes that I think have more risk.

I don't worry about these things either. I just use LR and Photoshop. I found with Photo Mechanic and CNX2, I did have to worry (a bit at least) about those things.

>If Nikon stopped
>making updates to CNX2 tomorrow, I still have a fully working
>version of CNX2 that will continue to process all the NEFS

Well, until Windows gets some security patch or an new version of the Mac OS is released or you run into a color management or soft proofing problem or want to use Nik Color Efex 4...

>code I believe is much higher than continued updates for bugs
>and new cameras that CNX2 has to contend with.

Yes, agreed.

Cheers,
Peter
