Yesterday Irident released X-Transformer 1.0 Beta 4 and it has a lot of improvements. Irident X-Transformer 1.0 has been pretty solid since beta 2 and continues to improve. You can read about the new release below.
The Iridient X-Transformer 1.0 beta 4 update is now available for download! Iridient X-Transformer beta 4 is supported on both macOS 10.7 or later and 64-bit editions of Windows 7 or later.
The new version can be downloaded here:
This release includes bug fixes, performance improvements and several new features. New feature highlights include:
1) An all new Lightroom scripting plug-in which for most users will likely be the preferred way of transferring images from Lightroom to X-Transformer and back as quickly and efficiently as possible. The plug-in requires no additional Preferences setup and avoids some of the limitations and unnecessary intermediate image processing applied by Lightroom when using “Edit In” . This plug-in also provides a quick and easy option to launch X-Transformer and bring it to front for settings adjustments prior to processing images.
To install the plug-in choose “Install Lightroom Plug-in” from the Help menu in Iridient X-Transformer.
2) The in-camera Fujifilm film style presets can now automatically be translated into Lightroom adjustment metadata such that the film style chosen in camera is also the initial Camera Profile selected when the DNG is opened into Lightroom/ACR. This feature is specific currently to Lightroom/ACR only and will not translate the film styles over to other RAW processors. This option currently is not turned on by default and can be found on the “DNG Options” panel.
3) The camera’s star rating values are now translated into standard XMP metadata fields such that they will be loaded by Lightroom/ACR/Bridge and other programs that support standard star rating metadata.
4) There is now an option to embed an Iridient specific camera profile into the DNG. This “Iridient Standard” camera profile should be a slightly better match to the default camera profile used by Iridient Developer. However, due to inherent differences in the default profile formats used (ICC versus Adobe DCP) the match will not be exact. Lightroom also insists on defaulting to its own “Adobe Standard” camera profile regardless of what’s embedded in the DNG so use of this profile in Lightroom requires manually selecting it after opening into Lightroom. For now the “Adobe Standard” camera profile remains the default.
