DNG transfer from Lightroom to 3rd party software
« on: September 09, 2017, 05:04:11 PM »

Hello!
 I'm trying to transfer DNG files from Lightroom 5 to Affinity Photo. In Lightroom when I right click on the file I choose the software I want to use, after Lightroom gives me in file format only 3 choice  TIFF-PSD-JPEG. If I want to transfer a real DNG and not a conversion to TIFF I have to leave Lightroom and go in my main files which is annoying since i have many files to treat in many different folders. 
Thank for our your help!

I never used LR, but I believe there shall be some 3rd party LR plugins that implement such functionality - launch some 3rd party raw converter and feed it with a raw file you select in LR ... $0.02

You might try the "Open Directly" http://lightroomsolutions.com/plug-ins/open-directly/plugin by John Beardsworth (who is a frequent contributor here).

The other option is to export a DNG file with the option to open another application in the post-processing section of the export dialog.

Affinity Photo will open a DNG. Not sure what the problem is.

Re-read the OP.
The problem is that you can't go straight to another editor (Affinity or anything else) with the 'edit in option with a DNG file from LR.

You can open the DNG. Whatever proprietary settings one or the other raw converter provided is just that, proprietary. You're not going to transfer LR's parametric instructions to Affinity or vise versa. But both products can open that one DNG.
IF you want the LR edits, you have to render that data as a TIFF, PSD, JPEG anywhere outside LR/ACR. So again, I don't see the problem. Other than, we can't share proprietary parametric edits.

If you want to open the DNG itself, and only if you are on Mac, you can drag the DNG onto the other app's icon in the Dock. Or use that plugin.

So you can open the DNG itself, though you may as well adjust it entirely in LR and just use Affinity for Photoshop-style edits.

You're still missing the point.
It's not possible to push a DNG file to another editor.
You can just push a PSD/TIFF/JPG straight to another editor, so why not in DNG format?

Sure it is. I did it today with the products under discussion.

New term? Push a (fill in the blank) to (fill in the blank).
Is the word Open not sufficient?

The 'product' under discussion in the OP is JUST Lightroom, it can't do what the poster wanted to do.

No, it's not.
What the OP wants to do is use the 'edit in' function to output a file and in the same process open the application to open the file, quite possible for TIFF/PSD/JPG, but not possible to use the RAW DNG format.
'push'ing the file seems a reasonable way to describe how that process works. It's more involved than a simple 'open' command.

It's an omission in the possibilities that LR offers.

Care to explain how do you open a DNG in other application from inside LR without exporting/rendering the file (or using John's plugin)?

1. Your question is ridiculous as written. Kind of like your made up and ridiculous language about 'pushing'.
2. You can open a DNG in Affinity using File Open.
3.You can 'open' a DNG in LR by importing it into the database.
4. You can get LR to send a rendered, by LR image to Affinity using this process :

We already knew the existing options to open a DNG. In case you haven't noticed, my "ridiculous" question is the OP question.
And you can actually open the raw file if using a plugin such as the one referenced before. Also, DXO optics pro developed a plugin so you can open a RAW in DXO directly from LR

You don't need a plug-in, you simply need software that understands DNG and Affinity Photo does.


As asked:  I'm trying to transfer DNG files from Lightroom 5 to Affinity Photo.

I know (as well I'm sure other contributors to this thread know) that you don't need a plugin to open a DNG in affinity.
The plugin is required to "Open a DNG in Affinity directly from LR", as you do by choosing "Edit in" and open a TIFF, PSD or JPG in an external editor

It is actually you who have a serious issue with reading comprehension

On a Mac it is enough to drag and drop the thumbnail from the Lr film strip into the Affinity icon in the dock, without the need of any plug-in. I do not know if anything similar is available in Windows.

On Windows 7, I seem to be unable to drag a thumbnail from the filestrip to an Affinity Photo  icon in the task bar, but I can drag from an explorer window to the icon and open the file in Affinity.

So, there appears to be a difference in capabilities between the MAC and the Windows implementations of Lr.

You're still stubbornly missing the point. The OP doesn't want the file rendered, he wants to open a DNG directly through LR (the edit in command).
It can't do it.
