Well… this is frustrating.
I had some time this afternoon to spend futzing with Studio and all the plugins. Watched one of the recent videos about Detail in Studio… was all set to try a few things. Went back to Lightroom (the new “Classic CC” version - not sure about the new “CC in the Cloud” version yet). And… full stop.
I cannot get get files from Lightroom to open in Studio. Despite countless attempts (each of which created a new file, since my setting is “open new file with Lightroom adjustments”), Studio seems unwilling to import the file from Lightroom. All I get is this:
…over and over again. I tried exporting the file from Lightroom to my desktop and opening it from there, but that just opens the RAW file (Nikon NEF), with none of the adjustments from Lightroom (since they are in the XML sidecar file).
These are the settings I’m using in Lightroom:
I tried rebooting my (Mac) computer, didn’t make any difference. Still stuck.
Lightroom is still the center of my workflow. I’d like to start using Studio, but it’s no good to me if I can’t directly import the files.
So, anybody got a clue?
