    Hi David,

    Thank you for feedback on Capture One - this is always welcomed and encouraged among our users and we appreciate the time you’ve taken to contribute towards the development of the software.

    I have forwarded your request to our Product Management team as something to consider in a future release.

    Whilst we cannot comment on future releases, we take all suggestions on board, and hopefully, your feedback contributes towards a future version of Capture One.

    Throw-away boilerplate product management language. Please do better.

    Surely you have a backlog? A timeline? Some semblance of velocity amongst your dev team and where adding HE* fits? This month? This quarter? This year?

    Your biggest competitor just announced support for these file formats, effective today. It might be time to catch up.

    So I searched all over for this and all I could find is a standard reply saying the request has been "forwarded your request to our Product Management team as something to consider in a future release."

    The Z9 is Nikon's flagship camera. Professionals worldwide are buying them faster than Nikon can make them. Surely C1 being able to read all the RAW files this camera spits out is more than 'something to consider'? I would like to hear it's a top priority, taking precedent over UI tweaks and other 'nice to haves'.

    It would be helpful to at least release support on the Intel platforms since the SDK is available there. When the ARM SDK is available, it can be added to the macOS version.

    Capture One, you will lose customers if you can't keep up with flagship cameras that many are buying. I agree to cut the boilerplate language and give us some hope (timelines, etc). Your customer service is TOO lean.

    Did you read my comment above? Capture One’s hands are tied. Every software maker awaits an ARM-native SDK from intoPIX. I have written extensively about this.

    @walter.  I did not see your comment and now that I have, I don't understand it; however, I do thank you for pointing me in that direction with timing. I will just shoot in Lossless until C1 gets it done. Cheers.

    Nikon High Efficiency format uses the intoPIX Tico-RAW image compression technology. The patent for Tico-RAW is held by intoPIX. One has to use their software development kit (SDK) (software library) to read and write the format, and pay them a license fee. They have a version of their SDK for Intel-based operating systems (Windows, and macOS for Intel). They are still developing an ARM-based version that will run on Apple M-series chips, but it has not been released. When it comes out every software maker will likely update to include it and support the Nikon HE file format on Apple ARM-based systems (iPads, iMacs, MacBook Pros, MacBook Airs, Mac Studios).

    That's really helpful, thanks. It's great to start to understand this stuff.

    On June 20, intoPix announced an SDK for TiCoRAW for ARM. It still has to be tested and integrated, and the estimate I read was sometime this fall before we should expect to see full support, but there IS a light at the end of the tunnel now.

    C1 could still drop the ball, but giving them a little time to work with this seems reasonable to me (and I have been a vocal critic on this topic).

    I do not want to integrate this without making sure the program is stable. That said, don’t try and pass that support off as a paid update either.

    I spoke with intoPIX directly and was told they might release their ARM-native SDK as early as July. Yes, it would then take time for all the software vendors to integrate, test, and release. The intoPIX website still only documents Intel and NVidia hardware platforms.
