Compatability with Nikon Capture NX2
« on: July 02, 2008, 05:50:40 PM »
I'm running NX2 on vista and trying to get labels and ratings to work between the programs. Almost all the time the ratings work, but i can not get labels put in one program to show up in the other. I tried the setting in the manual and ones that were in a message posted here a few days back but I have not been able to get labels to work. Also any insight into why ratings put in PM don't always show in NX2 would be appreciated.

Alan,

I'm running NX2 on vista and trying to get labels and ratings to work between the programs. Almost all the time the ratings work, but i can not get labels put in one program to show up in the other. I tried the setting in the manual and ones that were in a message posted here a few days back but I have not been able to get labels to work. Also any insight into why ratings put in PM don't always show in NX2 would be appreciated.

I suggest you try the PM 4.5.3.2 beta and enable the new "Synchronize Color Class with IPTC/XMP Urgency" feature on the General tab of the Preferences dialog.  Also, be sure to check out the new built-in help for information on how to setup the IPTC/XMP tab to be most compatible with Capture NX2.

There is still one issue that is a bug in Capture NX2 where it doesn't write out the correct Label name when saving a NEF file.  It always appears to work fine if you only "Apply" the label changes.  Nik Multimedia has been informed of the problem and hopefully they'll have a fix for this issue soon.

You can get the latest beta from the Announcements section of the forums.
