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.

Well, I think it works well as a converter only. What’s the purpose of the question - other than the obvious?

Can you explain what the obvious is? Yes, I plan to use it as a converter only, if it works as well or better than the others.

Also, there are so many threads about this topic, and some even include silkypix in the discussion....but not many. That may tell you something. I use Iridient X Transformer and Lr/Ps.

I always hear about Affinity, Adobe, Capture One, but never the Raw converter that comes with the camera. Many don't like the demosaicing algorithm of Adobe, and many praise Capture One, but not so much about Fuji's, which is why I bring up the question. If this question about Fujifilm's Raw File Converter software has come up recently, then I apologize.

Fuji supports it's users with 2 free somewhat stripped down raw converter versions:

the free Fuji version of silky pix (download from the Fuji website) and the free capture one version for Fuji (download from the capture one website).
Beside Fuji, also Sony and now also Nikon (quite likely financially) support the free basic capture one version.

With the free Capture One version registered you see the upgrade price to the Full Fuji version in your capture one user account. Don't know how long the -30% off Black Friday/Cyber Monday discount will last.
