Just want the codec trial - not pro version

Postby debgary on Sun Jun 26, 2011 9:05 am

Hi Guys,

Hope you can help. I'm sick to death of the x64 bit viewer drama for canon cr2 RAW files and want to trial a 'viewer' codec. I'm not interested in full blown pro versions of anything, and cannot seem to locate a download for just the codec's, so I can view the cr2 RAW's and try before I commit to buying this product.

Am I dumb or missing something here? I'm asking if the fastpictureviewer codec's work without the full pro software? I'm thinking they don't, because I can't seem to find a trial for the viewer codec's on their own. I can't locate any information on the site to indicate I can have just the codec's without the pro software, which I'm not interested in.

Your help is appreciated and thanks in advance.

There is no trial version of the Codec Pack. The main reason is that people forget about it by the time the trial expires, and this create all kinds of support issues.

You can install the trial version of FPV Pro 64-bit edition, a free download from our website, which ships with the same raw codecs as those in the Codec Pack.

You won't get support for Photoshop PSD (among other things) which comes only with the Codec Pack, but you should be able to see how well we support CR2 files. You might also like the viewer itself, who know? ;)

EDIT: The FastPictureViewer Codec Pack is now available as a separate trial download.
