I know... I know... this is like which vehicle or what camera type questions but I have been a Aperture user for years. Yeah I have copies of LR, CS, DXO, C1 and a host of plugins and specialty softwares and occasionally used them for their strengths when needed but given a choice I opened Aperture first. Mac has abandoned Aperture so it is inevitable that I will have to migrate to another software in the near future. This a7rII has essentially at the moment given me a kick in the tail to move to something else. Sadly even with many PS/CS college courses these software even though they are without a doubt the most powerful photo processing softwares in the world but it's UI and my mind just never have blended very well. I really don't like the layer process and many of the other systems Adobe uses (not to mention the worlds worst customer service department of any company I have ever dealt with). But, if LR is the best PP software for a7rII AWR files then I would just have to tough it out and use it UI issue or not.
I see Quentin has been using Adobe and I think Guy still uses C1 (could be wrong there) but both individual are posting excellent images. What is the consensus today as to which software is working best with Sony files? I got most of them so cost of changing to another software is not a issue but results and UI are along with a filing system that might be like the Aperture software if there is one.
I played with a7rII files in both LR and C1 and got my best results converting the AWR file to a TIF and moving them to Aperture (you know that is the 'Old Horse New Tricks issue") working them there
