Does anyone know if DXO Optics Pro 8 can open a NEF that has been processed by CNX2? I realize it wouldn't be able to 'see' any of the CNX2 edits, but I wondered whether I could run some of my previously processed files thru Optics Pro to compare with what I get out of CNX. I may trial Optics Pro, but I'd like to know the answer to this question before I do. Thanks.

As I understand it, CNX2 saves its changes as 'instructions' in the NEF files, rather than using sidecar files like many of the other RAW converters. That's why I have the question about other software reading the NEFs that come out of CNX2. If they can ignore the updates CNX has made, all should be well; otherwise, I'm stuck being unable to redo all of the NEFs that I used with CNX2. I may just have to download the DXO trial and see what happens.
