Iridient Developer (was RAW Developer) is a powerful image conversion application designed specifically for OS X. Iridient Developer gives advanced photographers total control over every aspect of their digital camera’s output, yet still provides easy drag and drop conversion convenience and access to basic adjustments for the casual user. Iridient developer supports RAW files from over 400 digital camera models.
- New noise reduction processing for luminance and color. The new noise reduction along with previous 3.0 beta updates to RAW processing, clarity and sharpening completes a major overhaul the core image processing for version 3.0 and significantly improves Iridient Developer's already excellent image quality, especially for RAW format images.
- Support added for RAW images from the Olympus E-M5 Mark II shot in 40 megapixel high resolution, supersampled mode.
- Additional improvements have been made for the preview rendering approximation at smaller scale sizes for sharpening, noise reduction and clarity adjustments on the Detail panel. Noise reduction processing with the new v3 process will extend now below 50% scale.
- Refinements have been made to the new Iridient Reveal sharpening method which reduces the appearance of speckle noise, in the shadows especially, when using very strong sharpening levels.
- Improved RAW black level handling for many Panasonic models.
- Improved RAW black level handling for many Samsung NX models.
- Fixes compatibility issue with Mac OS X 10.6 systems.
- Fixes image preview centering issue when resizing the image window on Mac OS X 10.6 systems.
- Fixes issue with color noise reduction where some settings could result in grid patterns appearing when applying agressive post RAW conversion channel mixer adjustments in Photoshop.
- Fixes an issue with automatic loading of older "rdsf" format image settings sidecars.
- Fixes an issue with the automatic loading of embedded camera tone curves from Leaf MOS format images.
- Fixes an issue loading some RAW images from the Samsung NX1 which use 12 bits/channel mode.
- Fixes an issue where exported Pentax 645Z TIFF images would be mis-identified as RAW format when reloading into Iridient Developer.
- Fixes an issue with the "preserve luminosity" option for the monochrome channel mixers where some value combinations could give poor or all black or all white output.
