PhotoLine 22.02 does not Fully Support new Nik 3 Plugins

Post by OldRadioGuy » Fri 05 Jun 2020 17:53

TIF files produced by apps in the new DxO Nik 3 Collection not fully supported in PhotoLine and can cause PL to crash. (My tests conducted with ORF raw files in Silver Efex Pro 2).

DxO has just released a new package – Nik 3 – of the plugins/apps that run in PhotoLine 22.02. A new option, “Save and edit later” is available in the standalone versions of the apps but not the plug-ins. If this option is selected and the processed file is saved as a TIF, all the control point adjustments and recipes added can be accessed and reedited when the TIF is reopened in a supporting editor.

In my Silver Efex test, this new TIF contains two layers – a color file that appears to be a TIF rendering of the original raw file and a black and white layer containing the Silver Efex rendering including control point and recipe adjustments.

When this new TIF is reopened in the Silver Efex plugin via PhotoLine, the adjustments are not available (See the comparison screen cap). If an attempt is made to access the Selective Adjustments under Control Points in the illustration, PhotoLine will crash when the plugin is cancelled.

When PhotoLine is used to access a previously saved TIF with Silver Efex run as External Editor -> Edit Document, the “Save and edit later” option is available, but PhotoLine still does not detect the previously saved adjustments.

PL apparently does not understand the format of the data of these adjustments, when you save a file, discards these adjustments from tiff.
(Crash has not yet found)

I don't know what kind of interface is used here.
There is no standard for this in my opinion.
Does this work with any software beside DXO?

I asked DxO now about this problem.
They told me, that it is not possible to pass the data from the TIFF file to the plugin.

According to promotion on the DxO website, the feature is designed to work with Lightroom Classic.
