"View NX2 jpeg convert question"


Feltham, GB
          

Hi All can anybody shed some light. The question I have is this using the view NX2 convert file option to convert NEF files to jpeg for posting or email I have no problem but if I've done any editing and saved the file as NEF under Capture NX2 which shows that you have on the thumbnail image in View NX2 you then you lose the option to convert the file under Veiw NX2. through trial and error I have found if you have saved the edited file as a TIFF you can then convert as before. the question you will ask is why dont I save the file as a JPEG in the first place well yes I could and will probable do this in future but this is just something that puzzles me and I thought I would see if the more experienced users of the software can help. thanks for helping
Adam

Once a NEF file has been edited in Capture NX2, View NX2 is not able to do any further processing on the RAW file, it can only display the jpg that is contained in the RAW file. If you have converted to a TIFF or JPG then View NX2 can do further processing or conversion.

If you consider the purpose of the VNX2 software, it does a great job of reading raw RAW files but RAW files that have been cooked contain a jpeg that can be displayed by VNX2 but since it is not CNX2 it can't render the RAW file according to the stored edit steps contained in the RAW file data.

I use the batch feature in CNX2 or simply do a Save As after first saving my edited NEF file to get jpegs for emailing.

DeanAZ...and others. I want to make sure I understand your reply and my understanding is correct. Viewnx2 will display my raw nef according to whatever I have set as far as camera presets (sharpness, picture mode etc). Now if i edit that file in CNX2 and say change a picture mode or white balance, but keep the file as a RAW nef, then when I redisplay this file in VIEWNX is will still appear as it did originally with the camera baked in settings, and will not display the CNX2 adjustments I made...is that correct? I think that is what you said in the above post?

No, it will not display the original baked in jpeg but will display the processed jpeg that is embedded into the NEF file. But while it will display the embedded processed jpeg, it can't process the file in any way including re-saving as a different file type or resizing. You will need to use CNX2 for those types of tasks.
