RFC-EX vs. Raw Therapee
5 months ago
This is a continuation of posts from another thread, Fuji asks for help with Adobe on X-Trans support.
There is an update to RAW Therapee (RT) for Fujifilm X Trans files. A comparison of an image created in RFC-EX and RT from the same RAF file is available in a DPR Album. The RT image presents more colourful detail and clarity than the same from RFC-EX. The difference appears to be a result of RAF file conversion rather than post-processing tune-up.
Here's the continuation of previous posts:
I found the RT image to have more colourful detail and clarity than my RFC-EX version of the same. The RFC-EX version seems a little blurry or out of focus. I could not achieve the same clarity or colourful detail as in the RT image with adjustments to the RAF file using RFC-EX. So, I zoomed both images to a level for 1600% to see differences between the RFC-EX RAF image and RT JPEG image. The RT image was viewed on another RFC application as RFC-EX did not open the RT file.
In the album, the first image was tuned-up with RFC-EX. However, comparisons were made with both the RFC-EX RAF and RT JPEG set to their initial default settings. The second image is the original RFC-EX RAF as a JPEG, the third the RT JPEG, and fourth a screen shot of the zoom locations. In the comparisons the first image is from RFC-EX and second RT.

I’m interested in your comments…
