ViewNX can't read Capture NX2 edits?

When I try to do a batch conversion of NEF files with ViewNX, I get a message: "Your selection includes some NEF/NRW images that cannot be edited with ViewNX. These images...". Apparently these are images that I have edited in NX2 and saved.

So I guess this is just a limitation of ViewNX ? Bummer.

Jan,

Batching with View NX, when that is possible or practical, is apparently faster than batching with Capture NX2. Somewhere in the forum you can find a link to a video of a Nikon rep explaining that View NX is designed for batch processing the global adjustments such as white balance faster than Capture NX2.

Is there a reason you don't want to batch with NX2?

Not only is it faster, you can resize automatically.

I sometimes want to get a quick NEF -> Jpeg conversion sized for viewing on my HDTV (1920px longest side). ViewNX makes this very straighforward.

Oh, I see. I didn't realize it was faster.

As far as resizing in NX2 goes, I just set up a settings file that changes the longest side to 1024 ( for uploading to flickr) Just have the images highlighted in the browser, apply the settings file, save the output as a jpg, and voila.

Maybe I'll tinker with ViewNX batching, although any image that I am going to work on will be in NX2 anyway, so I doubt it would prove to be of much use for me.

Because edits done in Capture NX are not available to be rendered in View NX, it will not edit a file that has been saved in Capture NX.
(I read this on another forum - i do not use View NX personally)
