Like the title says, how well does Fujifilm's (Silkypix) Raw File converter demosaic X-Trans files compared to LR's enhance detail, Affinity Photo, Capture One, etc. Thanks.

I don't use any other converters than RFC and ART-RawTherapee.

RFC is good for standard shots, especially since HDR was introduced which at modest settings works well to get the shadows right, but it takes ages to update all parts of an image. But for night, high-ISO and underexposed shots it is poor. It gives a preview with good colors, which after a while are updated by dull color, even with noise reduction off. Especially if you want to push it a stop. You would have to compensate with saturation to 1.50.
