Homemade camera profile for the Pentax KP.

Rather than wait for Corel to get round to it I've created camera profiles (afzcam) for my Pentax KP DSLR. The profiles seem to be stable and work well but you use them at your risk. I used an especially written Unix script which I came across here: https://github.com/asalamon74/afzcamcreator, if yo...

Lines on exported jpgs

Sometimes when I export a JPG from an edited DNG I get lines on the output. Actually even if I don't edit the DNG and simply just export to JPG the lines appear. The lines on the exported JPGs are visible in other software and definitely aren't on the original DNGs. They are created by both ASP 2 an...

Re: Crashes and closes on new system build

I like Aftershot, the interface is well designed and it is so easy to use BUT v.3 is about as stable a drunk riding a pogo stick trying to cross a tightrope. I manage to get v.2.4 to stay open long enough to do stuff but v.3 has an active death wish, I tried to import a few photos (mix DNG & JPG) wi...

Re: Not supporting DNG is a *bug* - let me explain

ASPv.3 supports Pentax DNGs without a problem, so does ASPv.2.4. ASPv.3 does not appear to support Pentax PEF but ASPv.2.4 does. I tend to leave my Pentax DNGs alone and export any changes to TIFF or JPG as those are standards which appear to be universally supported. See this for more technical fun...

Re: v.3 won't support Pentax PEF RAW format.

An update: Corel have asked for my camera model, a K3. I also sent them this: More information for you. I created a new folder full of new PEF files, I then imported the contents of that folder into ASP2 and all worked perfectly, I could see and manipulate the files. I then carried out the same proc...

Re: v.3 won't support Pentax PEF RAW format.

I can supply a K3 PEF file but so far Corel haven't asked for one, in fact they don't seem to be interested in my case at all, Ticket (3638657). Their advice seems to revolve around "try re-installing ASP3", what next? Try turning you computer off and on again, or re-installing your operating system...

Re: Introducing the New AfterShot Pro 3

Any progress on the problem with PEF files? It is a pain having to keep going back to ASP2 to manage PEF Pentax RAW images, so far Corel product support has sent me instructions on how to reload ASP3 under windows after I'd already told them that I was using Linux (twice). I wish I had hung fire and...

Re: ASP-3 and Linux

I loaded the trial version in Linux Mint 17.3 hoping to get further away from Windows and Adobe. Main issue is ASP3 doesn't see the mounted NTFS and FAT32 drives which is where my image files are stored. It sees /mnt but nothing in it. Select > RtClick >Refresh didn't help. Anyone else have this is...

Re: Introducing the New AfterShot Pro 3

Regress on ASP3. ASP3 doe not recognize nor open PEF files of the Pentax K3. ASP 2 did the job. Hi Yves77. There is no planned regression here, so I'll need to look into this. Please bear with us while we investigate Same problem here, ASP2 handled PEF files brilliantly but in ASP3 I can see the th...

Re: ASP-3 and Linux

I'm sorry to report that I paid up for v.3 and now I've reverted to v.2, hopefully temporarily. Firstly the much vaunted "Get More" facility is not available under Linux (thanks Gary for the info), but the killer for me was that support for PEF files (Pentax RAW format) seems to have vanished into t...

Re: "Get More" Less?

Thanks Gary that explains things, it was driving me mad, I've been ripping my Linux installation apart looking for a reason. Now all I need to do is find out why support for Pentax RAW (PEF) files has vanished, it was there in v.2, looks like I will have to switch to DNG in camera for now. I am real...

"Get More" Less?

Hi,

I've just upgraded to v.3 and there are loads of references to the "Get More" tab in the Tools Panel, well I've got a Tools Panel but no "Get More" tab, I just can't find it anywhere. Where can I find "Get More" please?

v.3 won't support Pentax PEF RAW format.

Hi, First post from a desperate user! I've been using v.2 of Aftershot Pro for a few months and I've been really happy with it, I had a notification that v.3 was available so I've paid up only to find I now can't see my Pentax RAW (PEF) files in the editing window, I can see the thumbnails but not t...
