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.

It has been a while since I have used it.  Does a fine job converting but extremely limited in features and capabilities when compared to capture one or LR.  As I recall the workflow was also seriously lacking. I used LR for a few years then switched to capture one.  Could not be happier. I just hope the version coming out has stacking capabilities for bracketed sequences.  Give silky a shot but I would compare it to the free version of capture one. If you prefer capture one then I would upgrade to the full Fuji version as layers are essential in good post processing.
