"DNG not read in NX2"


US
          

I have just recently started converting my images in Lightroom 2.7 to DNG. They open quicker and run easier than the NEF files do. But when I tried to open and view them in View NX and Capture NX they didn't come up at all. Why is that? Does Capture NX2 not read the DNG files? Any help would be greatly appreciated.Thanks

Thank you both. I'm surprised that NX2 can't read the DNG files though. Scott Kelby in his book, "Lightroom 2 book for digital photographers", touts the DNG files as an open source file that will be able to be read by many applications. And he recommends converting the NEF's because one day their make-up might change so that they couldn't be read and except by propietory software. But already it seems that DNG files are that way. Anyway thanks again.

One more thing. Which do you guys recommend, the DNG or the NEF?

That's a very long subject which has already been thrashed quite a bit. I use them because I think they have several advantages for photographers using an Adobe-centric workflow. That doesn't mean they only work with Adobe applications, but that the advantages are more prominent. If you're using NX2, you clearly shouldn't be using DNGs.

Thanks Rick. Actually I was using NX2 before I switched to Lightroom for the cataloging capability. But since then, I've come to like the editing in Lightroom as well. But on occasion I run a file through NX2--until I started downloading in DNG. I will probably just stay with Lightroom from now on.

Just because a vendor publicly discloses the specifications of a file format and offers a free SDK, System Developers Kit, does not make it a standard format let alone an ISO standard.

See Adobe DNGand DNG hardware and software support for more information about who and how the DNG format is supported. Note there are many programs that can read the format but will not write the formal.

Adobe has asked the ISO to take over the format specification, but it is not known if this will be accepted as an international standard. And even if it is an ISO Standard,individual vendors will still be free to not include it in their product.
