DxO PureRAW 2 also for Fujifilm X-Trans cameras

The DxO PureRAW 2 program improves the quality of raw photos without any further action. The raw files can now be pre-processed directly in Lightroom Classic CC.

DxO PureRAW serves as a pre-stage for the actual processing with a program such as Adobe Lightroom Classic CC , but also other image processing programs such as Capture One that support raw formats. At the touch of a button, DxO PureRAW improves the image quality before the actual image processing starts. To do this, DxO PureRAW uses artificial intelligence in the form of convolutional neural networks so that the demosaicing and denoising processes of the RAW image conversion can take place simultaneously. The network has been trained on millions of sample images and is said to be able to achieve results that far outperform algorithms developed by humans. The result is a raw image as a linear DNG file that offers the same creative freedom as the original raw file. However, according to DxO, with the best possible image quality in terms of colors, noise behavior and fine image details.

DxO PureRAW 2 also automatically corrects lens errors. To do this, the program uses a database with more than 70,000 camera-lens combinations. This should also ensure the best possible results in terms of lens sharpness, corrections of geometric distortions, vignetting and aberrations.

What’s new in DxO PureRAW 2

Compared to the first version of DxO PureRAW, the version 2 just introduced has received some innovations. According to DxO, the processing speed has increased significantly, and the raw recordings can also be improved directly in Lightroom without having to leave the application. In Lightroom Classic CC, you can right-click multiple RAW files and let DxO PureRAW 2 process the selected images. The new DNG files will then be placed in the same folder without having to leave Lightroom. In addition, the integration into the operating system has been improved, now you can start a conversion via the context menu of the Windows File Explorer and macOS Finder. Alternatively, DxO PureRAW 2 can still automatically process raw images in its own window via drag-and-drop.

Now also for X-Trans sensors of Fujifilm XT cameras

In addition to these workflow improvements, a lot has also happened technically: DxO PureRAW 2 now supports RAW files from X-Trans sensors. This allows Fujifilm XT photographers to take advantage of DeepPRIME, which enables cleaned images without noise and artifacts and with rich, vivid colors even at high ISO values. The developers have also turned the speed screw: the responsiveness as well as the processing and export times of DxO DeepPRIME have been improved. The data is to be processed up to four times faster on an Apple Silicon computer and up to 1.5 times faster on the latest Windows computers.

In addition to supporting HiDPI displays, DxO PureRAW 2 offers a variety of new camera-lens combinations:
