Getting 1.4 Ready
« Reply #125 on: May 14, 2017, 04:50:01 PM »

Main points to look for:

- Over- and Underexposure display has been improved and refined (Manual, p.132)
   • Detecting clipping point for overexposure zones display depending on camera's Make and Model (not available for all cameras)
   • Adjusting underexposure limit detection based on camera ISO setting

- Improved synchronization of XMP changes between ACR/Lr and FRV (see "XMP settings" in Manual, p.117)

- Touchscreen support (Manual, pp.68, 126)

- Option to verify data after file copy (Manual, p.36)

- The sorting and filtration of files in folders has been massively overhauled;
   • File sorting and filtering (Manual, pp.42, 165):
      • by Filename (naturally or alphanumerically)
      • by File type (extension)
      • by File modification time
      • by File size
      • by Shooting date (EXIF Timestamp)
      • by XMP rating
   • Save, Cancel and Restore filters (Manual, p.44)

- Folder tree editing (Manual, p.58)
   • Create subfolder
   • Rename folder
   • Delete folder

- Drag-drop into the folder tree (including Favorite folders) (Manual, pp.50, 112):
   • Copy or Move modes

- Drag-drop files into other applications (Manual, p.49)

- Selecting the position (below or above thumbnails) and detail of the EXIF data to be displayed in Grid mode (Manual, p.161)
   • Abridged exposure data (shutter speed and aperture)
   • More complete data (shutter speed, aperture, ISO, exposure correction)
   • Date & Time (from the EXIF data)
   • Camera name

That's great work! I did notice, however, that both FastRawViewer and RawDigger aren't reporting any updates available, despite being on older releases than what you have on the website.

We delay update automatic notifications by a week to give anti-virus software enough time to include new versions into the whitelists. Dealing with thousands of users simultaneously asking why the update is quarantined on their computer is no fun.

I can't argue with that logic!

FastRawViewer 1.4.7 Technology Preview
« Reply #133 on: June 21, 2018, 09:34:08 PM »

This technology preview aims to increase the speed and offloads more operations to GPU (for description and settings to enable this mode please see link to part 1 below) as well as speeding up workflows that include JPEGs (link to part 2 below).

Downloads:
Mac OS X 10.6-10.13: FastRawViewer-1.4.7.1316.dmg
Windows 7-10/64bit: FastRawViewer-1.4.7.1316-x64-Setup.exe
Windows 7-10/32bit: FastRawViewer-1.4.7.1316-Setup.exe

An extended trial license key (works until the end of July, copy-paste helps avoiding typos) P2IW6L-XOXNXX-LMBUED-GTI74X

Descriptions:
- part 1, https://www.fastrawviewer.com/blog/FastRawViewer-1-4-7-technology-preview - please read at least "Turning this mode on" section in the blog post
- part 2, https://www.fastrawviewer.com/blog/FastRawViewer-1-4-7-technology-preview-part2

Our results for Canon 5Ds, 50 Mpix files
Hardware for the test:
i7-7700K CPU at factory frequencies (no over-clocking)
NVidia GTX 1080 GPU
fast NVMe drive

For fastest video mode (Upsample: No Resample; Downsampling: None)
- 8.8 fps during sequential forward browsing (limits the unpacking speed)
- 14.3 fps for "repeat forward browsing" (the raw files from the test set are already decoded and put to cache)
For default video mode (Upsample: Bilinear; Downsample: Low res previews)
- 12.5 fps for "repeat forward browsing"

We would be very grateful for testing and feedback.

I have been using this new version for a couple of days and it is really faster than the previous one (1.4.6)

I don't have measured figures, but it is working well and stable. Basically there is no wait between images while browsing 36Mpix images (Nikon D800).

I can run through the CPU - MIX - GPU and see how the usage of resources shift from CPU to GPU (Windows 10 task manager)

Anyway, I don't think I'm near those figures (14fps) you mention as my gpu is not as powerful as a GTX1080

just in case the hardware: HP Zstudio G4, i7-7700, Nvidia Quadro M1200, NMVe drive

Could you please create a log file, to see if we can improve the speed further or something can be tuned up in Preferences:

- FastRawViewer Preferences -> Other -> Debug Log messages: All
- restart FastRawViewer
- browse a few raw files
- FastRawViewer Main Menu -> Help -> Debug Log, Save to file and e-mail the resulting file to [email protected]

Just wanted to comment on this. I received feedback from the Fast Raw Viewer team on the log I sent. After implementing their recomendations the speed increase was notable. This on top of the performance that I was already considering as very good.

This new version is incredibly fast, especially considering that it is displaying the RAW files (36MP) and not a jpeg or a reduced version.

Highly recommended!

Thank you, based on the logs we are receiving we tune the defaults for better performance from the start.
