To answer the most likely questions:
No, this update does not support the Nikon D80 nor the Canon 400D [Rebel XTi] yet. We receieved these cameras too late in our development cycle to make the cut for this release. We understand there are a lot of users now getting these cameras who want support as soon as possible.
There are also a bunch of other cameras models likely to be announced at Photokina which will want to support as soon as possible.
Because of this demand, we are planning to make the time gap between the ACR 3.5 and 3.6 releases shorter than usual, so you will not have to wait all that long for support.
Also, we are nearing completion of the Beta 4 release of Lightroom. This will be released fairly soon (before the release of ACR 3.6). Lightroom is currently in a free public beta program:
Beta 4 of Lightroom will have preliminary support for both the Nikon D80 and the Canon 400D.
So in the time period the Beta 4 release of Lightroom (soon) and ACR 3.6 (shorter cycle than usual), you wil be able to processor your Nikon D80 and Canon 400D files using Lightroom Beta 4. You will also have the option of using the Beta 4 build Lightroom to convert the Nikon D80 and Canon 400D raw files into DNG format, which can then be used with ACR versions as old as 2.4.
Not that this update is really necessary for Pentax users but when I install this the camera profile states ACR v2.4/ACR v3.1 - this is also true of other ACR updates as well.
Any one know why it doesn't state ACR v3.5.
Yes, that question has been asked frequently and answered frequently as well. Camera Raw reports the version when the profile for that camera was last modified, NOT the current version.
It is referring to the version of the built-in camera profile. So if there are two choices (2.4/3.1) it means that Thomas created an updated 3.x profile for the camera and you have the choice of which one to use based on what version of ACR you used for a custom calibration. Or in other words, it provides for backward compatibility with a 2.4 calibration. If you dont use the calibrate feature, its a moot point.
Thanks Mr. Knoll ACR 3.5 works ! Even with Canon 30D
and an AMD Athlon processor ! Thanks and regards Brian.
> Not that this update is really necessary for Pentax users
Yes, it is if you have a Pentax K100D. Its RAW files are supported for the first time in ACR 3.5.
>but when I install this the camera profile states ACR v2.4/ACR v3.1 - this is also true of other ACR updates as well.
What posts #4 and #5 say. It is also in the FAQs, which everyone should read before posting a question:
Q: Why is the profile listed in the Calibration tab showing a version of Adobe Camera Raw that's older than I am using ?
A: What you are seeing is normal, and is due to the fact that the built-in profile for your particular camera model hasn't changed between that version of Adobe Camera Raw and the version you're using now.
Other than the new camera support, any other improvements ?
>any other improvements ?
Minor enhancements and bug fixes usually go unheralded and unannounced. I've always updated to the latest ACR.
I notices that the latest Camera RAW (v.3.5) will open Phase One's P30 raw files (and I'm assuming that it will for the P45 also); Lightroom's latest release (beta 4) will too.
....but....it's not documented anywhere that it will open them.
My assumption is that this release of ACR is supposed to support the Phase One backs, but was missed in documentation...or being the silly season of Photokina, there'll be an announcement at the show to this effect.
The problem is that there's an issue... *sigh* ....
For some reason it chops off approx. 600 pixels off of the vertical dimension of the shot....and the beta 4 of the Lightroom package does the exact same thing to the pixel.
Will there be a fix for this?
Preliminary or unofficial support means that the Adobe QE team has not finished testing the support for a given camera. That's why those cameras are not listed until the support for them becomes official.
I am new to Camera Raw and I hve just downloaded 3.5 plug-in and DNG converter. I have not worked with plug-ins How do I know if I have installed it correctly? Other than adding the new camera compatability what is the differnce from the earlier 3.2?
Re: dng. I just downloaded and tried to select several images from browser to convert but the raw images wer not hilighted...what's up?
To see if Camera Raw is installed go into Photoshop, select Help, About Plug-In, Camera Raw and it should tell you the version number.
For DNG questions there is a forum at http://www.adobeforums.com/cgi-bin/webx/.3bb5f0ec/
Just so you know, I haven't seen the words preliminary OR unofficial support anywhere on Adobe's Camera Raw website with regard to the v.3.5 ACR release; in fact, there's never been (to my knowledge, at least) any mention of Phase One digital backs anywhere at the Adobe site....I searched...
Just would be nice when and IF they do decide to support it, as they are supporting Leaf digital backs....and of course I'm working w/ the Phase One back....
have a good one.
If you go here (just saw this):
...apparently, Phase One will be releasing info to Adobe (and Apple) regarding their RAW files so that ACR, Lightroom, Aperture can open and process them....sweet.
Panasonic DMC-L1 RAW files are only partly recognized. Especially other aspect ratios like 16:9 are not recognized, but also *some* 4:3 files too.
Just heard from Thomas Knoll: "This should be fixed in ACR 3.6 final release."
Get error message when click on update. Help! Have new Nikon D200
My CS2 has quit reading my .nef RAW files. The message is "Could not complete your request because it is not the right type of document". The CameraRaw plug-in is original with CS2 (3.0), but the new 3.6 will not download (get an "error- page not found" message). The only image that can be opened is one in the "Open Recent" tab...arrgh! Using both a Nikon D-70S and a D2X.
Thanks for the reply Ramon. After reading more threads, I copied the ACR 3.6 out of my desktop and replaced the ACR 3.0 in this laptop, purged the cache and it works fine. On a side note, the color picker was not working on the desktop (Xi computer w/ Dual core 64 bit AMD and Windows XP)...it completely locked up the computer. I took the ACR 3.2 out of my other laptop, put it into the Xi and everything is now working. It seems like I am not the only person to have problems with ACR 3.6 working on an AMD processor. Do you know of a library where I can download ACR 3.4 or 3.5...I still get the "page not found" message from the Adobe site when I try to download the new ACR.
Again, thank you very much.
Like B Anthony, I get error - page not found. I run Windows XP w/Intel Pentium D 830 dual-core processing. Thanks Ramon.
Unfortunately, I can't help further. I'm a Mac user.
Regarding the downloading difficulties at the Adobe site, what I wrote recently in another thread applies here too:

Thanks Ramon. I went to the other thread which got me what I needed. Loaded and ready to go!
I'm new to the RAW world so please bare with me. The problem I am running into is that I have Photoshop CS, not CS2 so the camera that I have is supported by the latest release of ACR but the latest release of ACR will not run on PS CS. That pretty much leaves me out in the cold so to speak unless I upgrade to CS2, which would cost more than my camera did. So am I pretty much out of luck here or is there some way I can do this? Is there a way to convert my .raf file to a .dng and then use it in adobe? Or would I be better off converting the .raf file to .tiff or .jpg in the fuji software then make my adjustments in PS? Obviously the fewer times I have to convert the better. Any ideas?
Camera is Fuji S6000fd.
Where are the knights of standards and practices when you need them?
If your camera is supported by version 3.6, you could download the free, stand-alone Adobe DNG Converter 3.6 and convert the RAW files from your camera to raw DNG files that can be opened by ACR 2.4 in Photoshop 8 (CS).
Otherwise, save them as TIFFs (not JPEGs) in the Fuji software.
Cool, thanks Ramon.
Having a problem opening D80 files with the recently downloaded DNG 3.6 Camera raw....even though this camera is mentioned as compatible.
Interestingly, It can read D70 files....
anyone else have same experience?
Macintosh or Windows?
Have you Purged the Cache from Bridge's Tools menu? (See the FAQs)
Thanks sooo much Ramon!!
The unpurged cache was the cuprit...
thanks for such a quick reply
Glad it helped.
Why not unstick this thread?
