Improved: Most of the time-consuming operations are now performed using parallel processing, to the effect that opening a file and computing statistics and histogram is 3 to 5 time faster if performed on a 4-core processor.
New: Display of blown-out and underexposed areas. The values for under- and overexposure can be adjusted through Preferences -> Over/Under Exposure Please see the manual for the detailed description.
New: Open Next or Previous file in the current directory. This can be done either through File menu or using the hotkeys: Ctrl + Arrow Right, Ctrl + Arrow Left on a Windows platform; Cmd + Arrow Right, Cmd + Arrow Left on OS X. The sorting order for these commands is set in Preferences - Misc Options - File sort order for Next/Previous.
New: To open Raw files RawDigger now defaults to RawSpeed library, which is much faster than the standard one. The user can change this default through Preferences -> Data Processing -> Use RawSpeed library for file decoding. If using RawSpeed the following options can't be changed:
Data Processing -> Sony ARW2 Hack is always On,
Data Processing -> Linear Raw Curve is always Off.
In order to set these options differently the user needs to switch off the option to use RawSpeed library. This is because RawSpeed library does not support all the options standard processing does.
New: On a Windows platform the user has the control to allow and disallow running multiple instances of the program, using Preferences - Misc Options - Run single Program instance. If single instance mode is On, starting a new RawDigger process results in the following:
The new process passes the file name that was used to start it (if the file name was passed to to the process as a command-line parameter) to the already existing process.
New process is terminated normally.
The user can force mode off if RawDigger is started with newinstance parameter like: RawDigger -newinstance [file name]. This will cause the new RawDigger process to start; the process started like that will not accept file names from other RawDigger processes. On an OS X platform new RawDigger instances can be started via Terminal.
Added an option to set selection in pixel coordinates (Menu-Selection-Set Selection by Numbers)
Changed the behavior of Preferences dialogue to make it more intuitive
Reduced the amount of memory used
Data Processing settings (Subtract Black and its modes, Linear Curve) now affect the RGB on-screen rendering
When "Masked Pixels" parameter is changed:
the selection area is re-calculated to preserve the selection position relative to the image (that is, selection coordinates are changed)
if "Masked Pixels" is turned off the selection areas that include masked pixels are deleted
New Preferences parameter: Use Regional settings when saving CSV/CGATS.
If it is switched on, the decimal separator is set in accordance to the system settings; and if decimal separator is set to period (".") in system settings - a semicolon (";") is used for separating fields in CSV/CGATS files
If the parameter is switched off, period (".") is used as the decimal separator, and comma (",") is used as the field separator.
Fast Raw Viewer is the first and the only dedicated tool specifically designed and developed for extremely fast display, visual and technical analysis, basic corrections, sorting and setting aside or directly transferring for further processing of RAW images.
