Ditto. I think we don't expect spanking brand-new features with each release, but OTOH to have fast-track procedures to include new cameras in ASP is paramount if Corel wishes to get new market share (and keeping old B5 customers happy).
Unfortunately the addition of new camera RAW support is not as easy as releasing a new piece of code for installation into ASP. This would be really nice if it was but that isnt reality.
However we can hope that Corel update ASP product with the latest camera RAW asap but it does take time and resources.
We just need to be a little patient and see how this all works through in the next few months as the new processes work through.
"This would be really nice if it was but that isnt reality" ........ Well it should be reality!
Corel with the introduction of ASP have thrown themselves into a highly competitive arena with the likes of Adobe & Apple. (As if they weren't already competing with them)
Coming up with a myriad of excuses why we don't have certain camera profiles isn't the solution .......... it's an excuse to be second rate.
Again I don't want anything for free, I understand the costs of software engineering, just get it done and make it available ..... I"LL PAY ..... that's the bottom line
If not then our hard earned money needs to go to a product that delivers and a Company that has the ability to stay up to date.
But am I to invest close to another $10,000.00 dollars in equipment to shoot JPG's so I can use ASP ....... ain't gonna happen
ASP is an excellent product with a bright future ......... but Corel ..... get the specs you require and build the profiles ....... I repeat Today's cameras need to be supported today.
Just tell me where to send the money ... I'll gladly pay for the update!
