    Iridient Developer

    A friend of mine just got his first DPM.. a DP1M. It didn't take long before I heard him scream through a row of emails..

    He the tried to develop some shots with Iridient Developer then, of which I could compare his results with SPP. Iridient seems quite superior and shows no crashes at all.

    An Alternative Process - Iridient Raw Developer 2.1

    Iridient is a piece of software that works the way it should, no doubt about that.

    It seems SPP just doesn't like Mac OS. Sigma needs to fix this as soon as possible.

    On my powerful Windows 7 Pro PC, which I've built myself, I have never had any lock-ups or crashes with SPP. I can have two versions of SPP open at the same time and process two files at the same time, with no problems at all.

    It sounds very good to me since I have a home brewed very powerful WIN 7 machine as well.
    Funny... my friend there tried the SPP on his MacBook Pro. Crash crash.

    Re: Iridient Developer

    Irident Developer is a very nice program—but won't do some of the sophisticated noise reduction/white balance calculations that SPP does (in SPP, these are tied together with the color deconvolution). For quality conversions, I'd say that SPP is generally the better piece of software.

    Version 5 rarely (if ever) crashes on my iMac. You shouldn't go 'click-happy' when it's loading full res photos, but I rarely have issues with crashes. Don't put a thousand images in a single folder and expect it to behave well. And if you're chronically having problems AND you've had older versions installed, it doesn't hurt to trash the plist/preferences files for the software, found in the library folder...

    Has anyone tried SPP on a Mac implementing Windows on a Boot Camp partition?

    Thanks Jim

    What are the required plist/preferences files good for if they may be trashed?

    EDIT: I found out. Those files are for Mac only.

    Re: Iridient Developer

    Hi,

    i just recognized that the program is available until end of the year with -20% discount. So, enough time to use the demo and try it.
    IMHO it's also supporting Fuji X-Trans and other RAW-Cameras.

    I'm not related to the company, just posting for other users that are searching for a replacement.

    Bye
