Convert Fujifilm RAF images to DNG format.


Iridient X-Transformer is a utility that can be used to convert Fujifilm RAF images to DNG format using Iridient Digital's high quality RAW processing algorithms. Much of the core RAW processing, sharpening, noise reduction and lens corrections featured in this program are shared with Iridient Developer a more full-featured RAW processor that is available only for macOS.

The Iridient RAW processing routines have been in active development for over 12 years for use in Iridient Developer and have been optimized and refined over the years for the best possible image quality. Iridient Developer is widely regarded as one of the highest quality RAW processors available.

The key RAW processing stages that can be applied by Iridient X-Transformer during conversion to DNG include:

  • Interpolation or demosaic processing. This transforms the camera sensor's X-Trans or Bayer color filter information to produce a full color RGB image. This processing is always applied by Iridient X-Transformer and cannot be disabled or undone. There are two interpolation options, one for a more detailed rendering and a second smoother, lower artifact version. The algorithms are identical to the latest "detail+" and "smooth" options in Iridient Developer 3.1.4.
  • Sharpening. Iridient X-Transformer features advanced sharpening based on the very highly regarded "Iridient Reveal" sharpening algorithms featured in Iridient Developer. Sharpening is optional and can be adjusted (low/med/high) or disabled.
  • Automatic lens corrections for distortion, chromatic aberration, and vignetting. Corrections are based on native Fujifilm lens information specified in their RAF metadata. The lens correction stage is optional and lens correction information can also be passed on through DNG opcode metadata and left to later processing stages or ignored altogether. The lens correction processing in Iridient X-Transformer uses the same high quality resampling algorithms as Iridient Developer.
  • Color and luminance noise reduction. The noise reduction processing in Iridient X-Transformer shares much in common with the latest noise reduction available in Iridient Developer and is specifically optimized for RAW image processing. Noise reduction is optional and can be adjusted (low/med/high) or disabled.

What's new in Iridient X-Transformer

Version 1.6.4:
New Features:
  • New camera model support for Fujifilm X-T4.
  • The Adobe Lightroom plug-in is no longer restricted to selection by RAW images only. Standard images, such as from RAW+JPEG mode, can now be used for selection as long as they have an identically named RAW image next to them. This makes for easier selection in older versions of Lightroom that may support for newer camera models.
  • Updated camera calibration and profile information for models newly supported in Adobe's latest DNG Converter 12.2 update.
  • Lossless RAF decompression speed on macOS improved by 10-15%.
Bug Fixes:
  • Fixed a macOS 10.7 specific issue with sporadic crashing when using drag and drop to select images for conversion.
