I think the answer is in-camera JPEGs and Silkypix RFC. Fujifilm is not going to give away their secret recipe for RAW file conversion. So, X-Trans users need to accept it or not; take it or leave it...

Huh? Fuji makes zero money from holding tightly to the secret of processing X-Trans RAW files. They're not a software company. They only make money if people like their cameras and the output enough to buy hardware. So anything that hampers user's enjoyment of the output diminishes the profit potential of X-Trans based products. So it would be illogical for Fuji to withhold support to software developers.

You are completely incorrect. Why do you suppose all camera companies hide their RAW information in proprietary formats? Using your logic, they should all use an open format.

I don't understand.

There is no advantage to Fuji for making RAFs difficult to decode, only disadvantages.

If you are talking about how they process the image to do film simulations, that is different.

It is actually more effort to provide sensor data in an open format such as DNG, rather than as a proprietary RAW format. Instead of just doing a dump of the sensor data, you have to transform it first.
