some dng's work on snow leopard, some don't?

Oct 6, 2010 10:34 PM

For the dng files I created with Lightroom 1.4.1 (importing .CR2 as dng), Snow Leopard (OS 10.6.4) is able to display a preview thumbnail in Finder and to open the files in Preview. It seems that no matter which backward compatibility options I select in DNG converter 6.2 (converting Panasonic .RW2), the resulting dng's cannot be previewed in Finder or opened in Preview. What gives? Is there a way to find out what kind of dng files are the ones that do work? I wish there was a way to find out exactly what flavor of dng (which specification, compressed or not, linear or not, etc.) a particular dng file is.

    Hi,

     

    Can you send me a link to one of your RW2 files?

     

    Thanks,

    David

    I have the same problem, has this been resolved? I would be happy to provide a RW2 file. I'm using Lightroom 3 to convert RW2 to DNG.

    Which software and version are you using to try to read the DNGs?

    Um, I guess I'd have to say that it's the OS X Finder (Snow Leopard 10.6.11) and Preview.

    Try choosing an older DNG compatibility version (e.g., 4.6) in the preferences.  And try unchecking the "Embed Fast Load Data" option.

     

    (The Finder and Preview don't currently support DNG 1.3 specification, and may be mistaking the fast load data as raw image data.)
