GIMP has a built in gegl based NEF "plug-in". No additional software
needed other than the requisite dcraw of course. Actually it can read
Fuji and Panasonic as well (probably what Pippin has :) ), but that's
not advertised.

If the UFRaw plugin can properly read NEF files, why can't the gegl-based
plugin?  I see this as a bug.

Can you tell me what the issue is? We can take it offlist if you want.

Or perhaps you could discuss it or tell about the results of your
off-list discussion on the GEGL developer list, so it would
become obvious to developers what still needs to be done?
Thus I'm cross-posting this to the GEGL developer list.

Of course Sven. Btw, I know that dcraw-load.c does not function on
Windows and I had suggested modifications almost 3 years ago. The
modifications didn't make it to the source.
BTW, the same issue is for CR2 (Canon raw files). I haven't tried DNG yet.
I wonder a bit that it doesn't work out of the box yet because GEGL
depends on the [LibRaw library] which reads camera raw files and is an
active project.

I have had some problems with some CR2 files but not others. Also,
dcraw-load.c does not depend on Libraw.
Personally I think GIMP and its users would benefit much if Camera raw
files could be read and processed natively.

I agree though with caveat. You need to preprocess RAW files and
dcraw-load.c exports a linear 16-bit image (one size fit all).

Greetings to you too.
