Viewing canon 1D Tif files.

Postby graham quick on Tue Sep 21, 2010 7:48 pm

Following Axels advice I've upgraded to Windows 7 to gain full benefit of FPV and I've put the OS, FPV and IMatch on a 60GB SSD.

To my surprise FPV browses Tif (canon RAW) files seemingly just as fast as any other type of file.

But Tif files are imbedded with a very small jpg so I don't think FPV is reading this and the browsing speed seems far too fast for a full RAW conversion.

I thought naively that the secret was the 2.4 codecs but Windows, Breeze Browser (still needed for key wording) and IMatch still show a very small image. Any ideas anyone how its done and is it something that could be integrated with IMatch.

Our Canon CR2 codec is indeed pretty quick and FPV flies on Win7 64 8-)

No idea about Breeze and IMatch though but, in related news, dictionaly-based keywording is on the to-do list for FPV Pro since a long time already. It will appear in a future release (once I find the best way to implement the keyword entry screen - I dislike everything I've seen so far - and find the time to properly implement it).
