Re: Multiple photo programs - explain sidecars?

Thanks everyone for your help. Darktable and LR can both write .xmp but each writes their own - so I have 2 .xmp files alongside the .raf raws. Each has their own naming protocol so easy to tell which belongs to which program.  DNGs (which I get using X-Transformer) have the data baked in so no sidecars.  DT, RawTherapp and LR all kept their own develop info straight.  The other commercial software must too.
