Phocus /Lightroom/PS workflow
« on: February 05, 2011, 08:20:31 PM »

I am new to Phocus--want to go from Phocus to Lightroom or Photoshop. When I try to export files from Phocus, the files seem to have lost all my adjustments made in Phocus.. I  am using a Hass H4D-60--which PS and Lightroom do not recognize, so I must convert the files from Phocus to DNG.. Any help would be appreciated.--Thanks--Charley

All you can do in Phocus is convert your 3FR files to DNG, but there will be no edits saved, as Phocus does not use the sidecar xmp files which LR uses, or write any changes to the DNG. If you want to make any changes to an image in Phocus, or use the lens corrections, you will have to export as a TIFF. In which case you might as well go straight from there to PS, and miss out on LR altogether.

Hasselblad 500 C/M, SWC and CFV-39 DB
and a case full of (very old) lenses and other bits
