I've taken a peak at this program, and it seems light and fast enough to run on my old laptop. Quite intuitive, especially the part about not needing to create calatogs.
Any other Nikonians have tried it?

Up until about a month ro so ago it was known as Bibble ( http://www.bibblelabs.com/ ). I've used it as my primary converter for about 4 years, and was quite pleased with it. It fit my workflow very well, was easy to use, was actively supported, and I really liked the output. It has, arguably, the fastest output conversion in the raw developer category.
I moved over to Capture One last fall, both for the feature set of Capture One and also due to the lack of communication on the part of the Bibble developers (they had gone silent for a very long time and some had departed).
My view is that Bibble / After Shot is a great product that worked very well for me for a number of years. Hopefully Corel will provide an environment that lets the product continue to thrive.

I haven't tried it, but Derek Story, on his blog The Digital Story, had a nice discussion of it's features. He was quite impressed. I recall he particular liked the way it implemented layers, which have always baffled me in Photoshop. (Not plugging anything or anyone in particular, just transmitting information.)

I had Bibble on my computer for a few years and couldn't get the results I wanted. Then for $20 upgraded to Aftershot Pro to check it out and have been satisfied to the point where I now have my D7000 taking raw only. Duncan.
