Silkypix Raw File Converter settings
6

I used Lightroom for developing my XA1 and XT10 images for the last 2 years. I own Irident Developer for a year now and now I tied the free Raw File Converter (Silkypix) and are very satisfied with the results. They are so good that I plan to switch my workflow to Raw File Converter.

Sharpening

Sharpening is up there with Irident Developer. Depending on texture you have the impression to get more detail out of it than with ID. I tried and checked and that are my default settings:

  • There are 2 sharpening modes in Raw Developer. Manual
  • Type normal sharp produces very sharp results that can look clear and oversharpened very easily.
  • ISO100 Outline emphasis 14, Detail emphasis 100
  • ISO800 Outline emphasis 20, Detail emphasis 100
  • ISO1600 Outline emphasis 17, Detail emphasis 100
  • ISO3200 Outline emphasis 14, Detail emphasis 100
  • ISO6400 Outline emphasis 14, Detail emphasis 100
  • Type pure detail gets you closer to Irident Developer in the matter of sharpness because it is more sophisticated.
  • ISO100 Outline emphasis 37, Detail emphasis 48
  • ISO800 Outline emphasis 37, Detail emphasis 48
  • ISO1600 Outline emphasis 37, Detail emphasis 48
  • ISO3200 Outline emphasis 37, Detail emphasis 48
  • ISO6400 Outline emphasis 40, Detail emphasis 48

Noise reduction

For noise I could not get Silkypix to work that flawless as ID and LR. The results are ok but here I need help. (I think about using Lightrooms noise reduction with the output of SP).

My settings so far. Manual

  • ISO100 Color distortion 0, Noise reduction 0, Noise Level 0, Noise cancel 38
  • ISO800 Color distortion 11, Noise reduction 5, Noise Level 0, Noise cancel 38
  • ISO1600 Color distortion 15, Noise reduction 15, Noise Level 0, Noise cancel 38
  • ISO3200 Color distortion 18, Noise reduction 10, Noise Level 0, Noise cancel 38
  • ISO6400 Color distortion 25, Noise reduction 38, Noise Level 0, Noise cancel 38

Since I could not find any current settings for Silkypix / Raw File Converter I thought I should publish my own settings. And maybe someone has some additional advice to get more out of it?
