Hi all,

There is a new release candidate for Lightroom and ACR on Adobe labs. It has some bug fixes and reworks the demosaicing for the Fuji X-Trans used in the X-Pro 1 and X-E1 etc.

I have just downloaded and installed it. After a very quick play, it seems snappier changing to develop module from library. The thumbnails seem to load quicker as well. All round, it seems a worthwhile improvement on my system for response. My library has around 12,000 images in it. As I say, the system is much more responsive now.
Details of my system are as follows

Windows: Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate, 64Bit
Memory (RAM): 12280 MB
Motherboard: ASUS P6T SE
CPU Info: Intel Core i7 CPU 920  @ 2.67GHz
Display Adapters: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260
Monitors: 2x; NEC MultiSync LCD2690WUXi2 1920 x 1200, ViewSonic VA2213w SERIES 1920 x 1080,
Hard Disks:
C: 500Gb Samsung 840 SSD for Programs and Lightroom Catalog
D: 4 x 1 Gb WD Red HDs in Raid 1 + 0  1863.0GB size for Data
O: 120Gb A-Ram Series SSD for Win7 and Adobe Swapfiles (CS6 and LR4)

NAS: 4Tb WD Sharespace in Raid 5
External Drive: 1.5Tb Seagate FreeAgent Extreme

Hi all,

Preamble:
Generally I have had good results with LR4.3 processed X-trans files printed on 13"x19" inch paper.
Only a few of my LR4.3 files exhibited the so called 'water color' effect in a significant way when printed, same goes for 'color smearing'.

The good news:
I installed 4.4rc last evening and processed some of my more problematic X-trans Raf files with it.
4.4rc has even better results overall and solves the 'problems' that I could see when pixel peeping 4.3 processed files.
The 4.4rc processed files are more tolerant of sharpening than were the 4.3 processed files.
To my eye and by my criteria (prints on paper) 4.4rc is significant evolution/improvement in de-mosaicing the X-trans files.
Adobe has bettered FujiFilm's in-camera Jpeg de-mosaicing.

GREAT JOB Adobe guys (and girls)!

The bad news:  Wink
Now I'm going to be spending more money adding to my Xpro-1 kit.
My DSLR kit is feeling un-loved.

Thanks again Adobe,
