When using the Rename or Batch Rename options, Capture One doesn’t typically allow renaming the file extension as doing so may corrupt the file. However, Phase One digital back file formats include a .TIF (RAW) file extension that is interchangeable with the more typical .IIQ RAW file extension. If you want to update one to the other, you must first enable the option in the Batch Rename tool’s action menu and then add the text in the Format field. Although intended for batches, the tool will rename single files.
Please make sure you have a file backup available before proceeding. Do not use with other extensions in case of file corruption and data loss.
