CS5/ACR6.5 kills Hasselblad Flextight 3F support

Nov 27, 2011 1:41 PM

Tags: #6.5 #6.6 #3f #fff

Until ACR 6.4 I was able to open Hasselblad 3F-Files (.fff from the Hasselblad/Imacon Flextight scanners) with help of the Hasselblad 3F Plugin directly in Photoshop.

Since 6.5 (also tried 6.6RC1) this is not possible anymore (some error message that ACR cannot open this file format.

I was able to downgrade ACR to 6.4 and now it's working again.


I suppose the problem is that ACR6.5/6.6 tries to open this filetype instead of letting the plugin do this.


Any other suggestions?

    What happens if in photoshop under Edit>Preferences>File Handling if you uncheck Prefer Adobe Camera Raw for Supported Raw Files?

    Does the Hasselblad format (as facilitated by their plug-in, not Camera Raw) appear as a separate line item in the list of formats shown in the Photoshop File - Open As dialog? 


    If so, a workaround may be to choose File - Open As, then explicitly select the Hasselblad plug-in format.
