Can LR handle Leaf .MOS files?
« on: March 02, 2013, 07:57:18 PM »

LR 4.3 (which is the demo version I have downloaded) says it cannot deal with Leaf .MOS files, the ones that the Aptus range of digital backs produce.

Is that correct? I have lots of them!

Roger, it depends on the digital back, as well as the format of the .MOS file.  Lightroom should be able to read uncompressed .MOS files.  However, Lightroom does not support the compressed .MOS image format.  (In case you're wondering, there are a few different "flavors" of .MOS raw files.)

If you used the compressed option, I'm pretty sure the Leaf Capture software can open a compressed .mos file and resave it as an uncompressed .mov file that ACR/LR will support.

LR can read both compressed and uncompressed .mos files, provided the file was written by the Leaf Raw Capture utility.

LR may be compatible with the .mos files as written by some Leaf digital backs and only in certain modes (you'll have to test), but Leaf Raw Capture will read all Leaf digital back authored .mos variants and output flavors of .mos that LR will import.

Hope that helps,
