Iridient Developer Version 3.1 Released

Iridient Developer Version 3.1 Released

3.1 – April 29, 2016 (Major Update)

  • New Features:
    • Two new version 4 RAW (demosaic) processing algorithms for Bayer sensor cameras feature improved fine detail rendering while reducing false detail artifacts, lower noise and provide fast performance.
    • Support added for RAW images from the Nikon D5 and D500.
    • Support added for RAW images from the Canon 80D, 1D X Mark II, 1300D (Rebel T6, Kiss X80) and PowerShot G7 X Mark II.
    • Support added for RAW images from the Sony A6300 (ILCE-6300), A68 (ILCA-68) and RX10 III (DSC-RX10M3).
    • Support added for compressed RAF images from the Fujifilm X-Pro2.
    • Support added for RAW images from the Panasonic DMC-GX80 and DMC-GX85.
    • Support added for RAW images from the Leica M-D (Typ 262).
    • Support added for RAW images from the DJI FC550 (Xenmuse X5), FC350 (Inspire 1 and Phantom 4), FC300X (Phantom 3 Pro) and FC300S (Phantom 3 Advanced).
    • Support added for RAW images from the Blackmagic URSA Mini 4.6K, URSA Mini 4K, URSA 4.6K and URSA.
    • Support added for RAW images from the HTC One A9 and One M9.
    • Support added for RAW images from the Samsung Galaxy S7.
  • Improvements:
    • Greatly improved highlight recovery when using some DNG Camera Profiles (DCP files or embedded in some DNG images), especially those that include color lookup tables.
    • Stronger, more effective Highlights (Neighborhood Adaptive) and Shadows (Neighborhood Adaptive) processing, especially for the higher end of the adjustment range.
    • No longer using the embedded DNG camera profiles by default for some of the recent Leica models (SL, T and Q). The embedded camera profiles do not seem to be well liked by many so I have now switched to my own custom ICC profiles for these models, the manufacturer’s embedded profiles are still available in the Input Profile menu.
  • Bug Fixes:
    • Worked around an issue introduced in Apple’s Mac OS X 10.11.4 update when using the Highlights (Neighborhood Adaptive) and Shadows (Neighborhood Adaptive) adjustments. On Mac OS X 10.11.4 the brightness would jump greatly at a certain level when using either of these adjustments.
    • Fixed an issue with the Iridient Reveal and High Pass sharpening methods where zooming in to high magnification, typically 300% or more, could cause the sharpening to not be applied correctly and in some cases the preview would also be very dark.
    • Fixed a bug with several of the monochrome conversion methods which could result in the appearance of white speckles in very dark regions, particularly when using negative values for the Brightness Shadows or Brightness Midtones adjustments.
    • Fixed a crashing bug with RAW support for some old Canon models, mostly from 2007 or earlier models (original 5D, 1Ds, …).
