Pick this up from a fredmiranda poster http://www.nikonimglib.com/nefcodec/
I don't get it...what does it do? Allow you to view NEF's in WinExplorer??
Exactly. Which is nice to just quickly browse without opening up NX or another program.
Just for the D700 or works on D300 too?
Yes it does. I always update the codec when Nikon releases a new one. Even if I don't have the camera they're adding. Sometimes other fixes get put in.
Will give it a try. Thanks for the tip!:biggrin:
My pleasure Scott.
Will this cause the same problems with Photoshop (that is not using ACR) as when I had installed Picture Project?
Now, if it only worked with 64-bit operating systems...
anyone try it on 64bit vista?
What problems did you have when you installed other codec updates?
When I first got my D70 I installed Picture Project and after that the Nikon codec was used to open the image in Photoshop instead of ACR. You had to remove the codec from the system to restore the use of ACR for NEF files.
First off, ditch PP for Transfer and View NX. Nikon didn't discontinue PP because it was a great piece of software! Secondly, these codecs have no bearing on the program you open your files in. These do not replace anything like what you experienced with PP. You are safe to install and still open up without fear of your other programs being affected.
That's good to hear Jeff. I don't have PP installed and have ditched Transfer as well as it would crash my PC. I'm using Photo Mechanic and NX2 with a little bit of CS3 in the mix.
I will install the codec and see what happens.
Too bad - another piece of software that will not install on XP 64bit......
Just to be pedantic about it, a "CODEC" allows translation in both directions. This is not a codec, as it appears that it only decodes (the "DEC" in CODEC).
Boy, I'm such a nerd!
