Hello all -

Found lots about NEF files here, but not what I'm looking for...or at least hasn't been able to help.


Running 10.6.8 and Aperture 2.14 (on a Mac Pro - lots of free drive space, 4GB memory)


When I try to look at NEF files, it says "Loading" for a (long long) while (I can see the thumbnail while it does this) and then says "Unsupported Image Format"


I have:

- rebuilt my Aperture Library

- deleted my com.apple.Aperture.plist file and rebooted.


Do I need Aperture 3 to see this? I have seen an update for RAW Compatibility, but it refers only to Aperture 3, not 2.x.x



Mac Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8), Time Capsule

You'll need Aperture 3 for that camera.

You didn't mention which camera's NEF files you were referring to.  This is important because each camera's raw file formats are different.


If it's a for a Nikon that's come out in the past year or so, Aperture 2.14 won't be able to read it - you'll need Aperture 3.


Which camera are the NEFs from?
