Hi.

I'm looking at giving Siril a bit of a crack.
Siril to my surprise wont accept CR2 (RAW) so I'm looking at the best possible solution to convert.  Would prefer a free converter if possible but willing to pay if that's only option and doesn't break the bank. I'm a Mac user also!

Cheers,

Ben

Winebottler can be  used to install PIPP on a macos. A native version of PIPP for mac users is currently in the works.

Rawtherapee, best raw converter bar none. There are huge amounts of processing options available, de mosaicing algorithms etc etc

Yes but why do you say that Siril does not read CR2 files ? It reads all RAW files.

Indeed that do Cyril.

 

Glitch user error (more than likely).

 

Working fine now.
