V5.8 to current - The install procedure changed and you need to run a application called Adobe Patch which then extracts the files, renames them and put them in the correct location.However you still want to install the files manually, as in my case, then keep reading.
4) rename this file to "Camera Raw.8bi" and install it to the location plugin folder for Photoshop.
You can then skip the camera profiles if you really want.
That adds an extra step to the workflow (which might be possible to automate), and I'd lose the original RAW file (because I don't want to keep twice the file size).
So, is it possible to teach the new file formats to Lightroom 4 as well?
To extract the camera profiles navigate to the Adobe Camera Raw Profiles6 folder and open the Assets2_1
This contains all the profiles but with a non standard name.1) Download and install v5.7 of Camera Raw and Camera Profiles 2) Download the most recent version of camera raw supported by your photoshop version and manually extract file 1003 and rename and install it over the previous one ---------------- Update - 20/01/2014 I just got myself a new 64bit system with Win7 64bit.So I had to reinstall my Photoshop C5 as 64bit and the latest Camera Raw.[EDIT] One possible workaround is a folder watcher of some sort.You can use a fancy plug-in like this (assuming there is a version for Lr 4.4 -- Friedl tends to track latest, though), or maybe just a regular watched folder. (Other than the "raw" file being ignored, which most workflows would do regardless of how the raw was converted, unless they wanted to save the raw inside the DNG. I make no distinction between the in-camera raw, which I throw away and reformat over on the memory card, and the archived DNG.)I was actually making the boilerplate statement about current and future CR support in Lr that is nearly identical to the Lr support forums: supported versions get CR updates in step with the CR plugin and standalone util -- both use the CR library at a specific version.Inside the Assets zip file I found a single file called 1002 (as per one of the commenter below).
