DxO has announced DxO PureRaw 2 which brings with it some pretty big performance increases, with a 50% speed boost on Windows and runs up to four times faster on Apple Silicon-based Macs. The new release also adds support for Fujifilm’s X-Trans files, promising “demosaicing and denoising like you’ve never seen before” that “corrects every possible lens defect”.
Like the previous version, PureRAW 2 uses convolutional neural networks to perform the demosaicing and denoising process. But over its predecessor, it sees a couple of new ways of working. You can pre-process your images from directly within Lightroom, to generate already-enhanced Linear DNG files for editing, or you can do it straight from the Windows Explorer or macOS Finder interface.
