.IIQ and Lightroom
« on: June 15, 2013, 03:10:51 PM »

what can I do to make my .IIQ files open in lightroom without converting them to DNG or TIFF first? when I try to import them (off a harddrive, not off a card), lightroom doesn't recognize them.

I know that C1 does a good job on them I am learning how to use it at the moment, but I have used LR for 100 of thousands of RAW files and I try to avoid using another program for the IQ160 files for now.

Hi!

I got a P45+ a few days ago. I have no problem using LR 4.4 for importing the images from card.

You may consider generating your own DNG profiles for the back. In my case they are much better than standard Adobe profiles.

Best regards
Erik

3 things to look at:

1. Check that the files are IIQL and not IIQS
2. Check that they were not shot in Sensor+ mode
3. Check that your LR copy is of version 3.5 or above

Hope this helps

.IIQ files will work with Lightroom and Camera Raw but I would discourage using them to process your .IIQ files. Yes they can open and see your .IIQ container but it does not recognize all of its components, like black calibration file embedded in the .IIQ. You can always Process in Capture One then output the files and use them in other programs.

What's better to procede with LR, output from Capture One to DNG or to TIFF?

It depends on what you want LR to do...if you want it to be your RAW converter then you can either process the IIQL files in it (not IIQS nor Sensor+ files), or convert them into DNG in Capture one, but this just makes them into yet another RAW format

If you use LR for editing/ DAM etc. then you're better off processing the files in Capture One into tiff

I would not save them as a DNG file. All adjustments like LCC profile and sharpness will not save with it.

Problem with Capture one is no support for colorcheckers.
I love the output don't get me wrong but I would love for them to include a way to utilize the colorcheckers.

Hi Frank,

Do you mean making DNG-profiles? Or some nice way to utilize Color Checkers I have missed?

Best regards
Erik

Hi,

Color Checker is an industry standard, the "Passport" is just a variant.

Best regards
Erik

I indeed mean A way to create a profile from a colorchecker for Capture One.
Will check out the program you mention.
The canned profiles are good, don't get me wrong but I just want the option to use my own.

Checked the software but for me that's just too much work and another thing I have to dive in.
It should be easy :D
We shoot the colorcheckers a lot, and not just once.
