Virtual Adobe support
A lot have been talked about the lacking Adobe support for the recent X3F formats. And I would suppose that some photographers have refrained from taking up the Foveon platform in any serious manner for fear of disruption in their comfortable workflow.
It makes me wonder whether it is not an acceptable solution, if only termporary, to just “incorporate” SPP in PS or LR as a plug-in. This would allow photographers to simply click on a X3F file to start SPP RAW conversion under PS (or LR) interface, modified to include SPP unique sliders and features. Adobe doesn’t have to invest a lot, but just allow Sigma to do so, and gains longer list of supported cameras/file formats. While Sigma ends up doing most of the dirty work, it benefits from eliminating one big obstacle to greater acceptance and popularity.
At the very least, Sigma can try to make the interface of SPP to look “familiar” to PS users and add a button to it that lets you save the conversion of the current image in a temp folder while also directly open it in PS (or LR, or any other image editor of your choice).
Just a thought.
