|This isn't related to iView, but I was just curious to hear from anyone who uses the Adobe DNG Converter software regulary.
What kind of performance do you get from this app (in terms of seconds it takes to convert RAW->DNG on average)?
I've found that it runs very slow (vs my expectations) on my resonably fast PC:
- Windows XP
- P4 3.6 GHz
- 1.5 GB RAM
- 10K RPM WD Raptor hard drive
I have a Canon 20D (8MP camera) and use the following DNG conversion options:
- JPEG Preview: Full size
- Compressed (lossless)
- Preserve Raw image
- Don't embed original
On average, it takes about 10 seconds/file to convert to DNG!
I also ran the DNG converter on a Mac Mini (1.42 GHz, 512 MB RAM, internal hard drive) and got about 9 seconds/file (w/ JPEG Full size preview).
Is the Windows version of this app seriously crippled or something? It runs faster on an under-powered Mac!
Can anyone with a similar camera (8MP) comment on how long their DNG conversion takes with the Full size JPEG preview?
