Currently Being ModeratedFeb 9, 2010 1:56 PM (in response to helloniklas)I just looked it up, the file you need is called Raw.plist
you will find it in this location :
hd > system > library > coreservices > RawCamera.bundle
you need to do a "show package contents" on the RawCamera.bundle, and inside this file go to this location :
Contents > Resources
There you will find the file Raw.plist
Be sure to make a backup of the RawCamera.bundle before you edit the Raw.plist file inside.
If anything goes wrong you can still go back.
If the GH1 and GF1 are so similar, I'm sure Apple will be releasing an update very soon to support it, but if you can't wait, try to edit the file I mentioned.
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 9, 2010 1:59 PM (in response to viskwal)Thanks, got the file, opens in plist editor, or my hex editor. However, it won't allow me to save it again. I tried to change permissions on the file, but it still won't do it... I guess I might have to do some Unix sudo commands to sort this?
And, no I can't wait really
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 9, 2010 2:14 PM (in response to viskwal)Ok, managed to edit the file now, by pulling it out, then replacing it. However, it still doesn't read the GF1 RAW file though... Which is odd. I guess there's something else checking the string as well... Odd that it does work the other way around, by editing the image file...
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 9, 2010 2:20 PM (in response to helloniklas)helloniklas, I have done this before, and it worked... maybe a search in google on "edit rawcamera.bundle" will give you more info..
Or maybe Aperture 3 uses the file differently...
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 9, 2010 2:22 PM (in response to Forest Basford)From my understanding both the G1 and GH1 use lens correction data. If so, then I'm stumped as to why Apple didn't simply add the GF1 along with the rest of them.iMac 3.07 GHz, Mac OS X (10.6.2)
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 9, 2010 2:26 PM (in response to viskwal)Ok, this all works fine now, sweet.
I also had to hex edit the hd/System/Library/CoreServices/RawCamera.bundle/Contents/MacOS/RawCamera
as well as the hd/System/Library/CoreServices/RawCamera.bundle/Contents/Resources/Raw.plist
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 9, 2010 2:36 PM (in response to helloniklas)To recap...
This it not recommend unless the person doing it knows what they are up to...
2 files needs to be edited (back them up first)
Edit it with the plist editor, and change the GH1 to GF1
Edit it with a hex editor and search for all instances of GH1 and change them to GF1
Viola! Restart Aperture 3 and you can now load GF1 raw into Aperture 3.
NOTE: You might have to copy the files to your desktop first, edit them, then move them back into the package.
And I guess you have to redo this when an update is out, unless that update contains the GF1 support.
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 9, 2010 6:03 PM (in response to ksr24)Thanks for that… It does indeed work like a charm for both Aperture 3 and iPhoto '09 (v.8.1.1) Let's hope that Apple add support for the GF1 soon though.Mac Pro (2009) 2.66GHz, 6Gb RAM, 640GB HD, Mac OS X (10.5.8)
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 9, 2010 9:13 PM (in response to Andy Basford)This didn't work for me. Am I the only one? I'm running Snow Leopard with the Aperture 3 Trial. When I select "RAW files only" under "RAW+JPEG Pairs" no files show up. My raw files are named like this: P1010199.RW2. When I searched for the string GF1 inside the RAW file I found "Panasonic.DMC-GF1", but that string doesn't appear anywhere in my modified RawCamera or Raw.plist files. Those have strings like: "PanasonicGF1.DMC-GF1", "PanasonicDMCGF1", and "RCID_PanasonicDMCGF1". Is that the problem? What kind of string do other people have in their RAW files?MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.2)
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 9, 2010 9:47 PM (in response to juddhuck)I tried updating /System/Library/CoreServices/RawCamera.bundle/Contents/CodeResources as recommended here: http://www.macosxhints.com/article.php?story=20071028133430814. Still no luck. Has anyone else gotten this working on Snow Leopard?MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.2)
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 10, 2010 4:59 AM (in response to viskwal)I have an alternative solution... a little app that fools Aperture into thinking the files came from a G1. Its a drag and drop app that copies your raw and makes changes to the copy.
Totally safe and no need to go hacking around in the system folder
Its available here
I don't have a GF1 so I am not sure what, if anything, is lost in the conversion, but it seems to work. The app takes a copy of your original file and performs a little wild magic on it so your original file is always safe
