Visual preview issues

Offline
#1 Renaud
Hi Gunther,

I'm experiencing several issues at the visual preview stage :

1) it took 6 hours to process 330 images on a maxed 2017 27" iMac with 48 Go of memory...
2) after that, I don't get the 'normal' pink curve but a flat one), and the video preview is not corrected according to the key frames.
And the de flicker button is inactive.

Screen captures :

Did I miss something ?

Thanks !

None of those visual previews have been generated, the line below the preview is red which means, that each image produced an error.
First thing would be to upgrade the Adobe DNG Converter to the latest version, restart your computer and try again to turn on visual previews on that sequence. No need to wait for the whole thing, if the bar below the preview starts to turn red, something is wrong, if it gets green the previews are being created.
Should it turn red again, send me the log file (info menu).

Thank you Gunther for your quick answer ! Great support !
It's working now : I had a 2011 version of DNG converter !
Interesting BTW : what's the role of DNG converter in the process ? And do you recommend to convert raw files to DNG when importing ?
One last question : are there options to rename differently when importing, like 2019.02.16_09.11.23 ?

The DNG Converter is being used to develop the previews.
You don't need to convert the RAW files to DNG, in fact the workflow will be a little bit slower with DNGs.
The naming options are fix, and especially streamlined for alphabetical order.
