Writing PhaseOne MakerNotes
« on: September 28, 2015, 05:04:01 PM »
Hi Phil,

Could the Phase One maker notes be made writable in a future release, or is there something preventing this with the IIQ format ?

As you know they put a lot of things in this bloc, and I'd really like to experiment with some Phase One and PhaseOne SensorCalibration tags (colormatrix, flatfield, linearization values, etc).
Thanks for reading.

Best,
Aleph

Hi Aleph,

I looked at an IIQ file to see why ExifTool won't write the maker notes.  The thing that scares me is the raw data is stored in the maker notes of these files, which may be the reason why I haven't added write support yet.  But also, I only have two IIQ sample from two models (P40+ and P45+), which is certainly not enough to thoroughly test any writing feature.

Hi Phil,

Thanks for your answer.

Indeed, Phase One puts all the interesting stuffs in the maker notes.
If you want to have a look, I can prepare a couple of files from my IQ back as well as some from Leaf Credos (Leaf dropped the .MOS format and switched to IIQ in 2012) and send you a download link.

Best,
Aleph

Hi Aleph,

Thanks.  Any IIQ samples you have from other models and/or software would be appreciated.

Hi Phil,

PM sent with a link to various IIQ files. Will try to get some more if needed.

Hi Aleph,

Thanks for the offer.  What platform are you using?  (Hoping it is Mac or Linux because it is more work for me to produce a Windows version for testing.)

Hi Phil,

An OSX version is fine, I have access to 10.10 and 10.11 systems.

Hello Phil,

There have been new models released as well as firmware updates. I can probably try and get you some files if still needed.

Best,
Aleph

Hi Aleph,

Files from new models would be appreciated.  This is top of my to-do list but I haven't had much time recently to work on this.

I have just made a 10.08 pre-release available here.  This version has the ability to write the PhaseOne maker notes.  It would be great if you got a chance to test this out before the official release in a week or so.

Hi Phil,

That's great, I will test over the weekend and report back. I managed to get files from some newer backs too, not all of them though.

Hi Phil,

I'll hijack this thread as the question I have fits well in this sequence that does not seem to have been completed back then.

I am copying all meta data from RAW images to interpolated Tiff images. In case of Phase One *.IIQ files I just found that I copy the actual RAW image along with the maker notes.
When opening the Tiff in Photoshop the RAW data is encountered and Camera RAW opens the file on that basis - ignoring the Tiff as a consequence.
Ther eis a specialized PS > File > Open As > Tiff command that circumvents this but...

I would thus like to be able to either remove the RAW data from the maker notes or copy everything but that.

Didn't get that to work. The only thing I could do was:
Code: [Select]
exiftool -MakerNotePhaseOne= *.IIQ
That is kind of desperate...  There is stuff in there I'd like to keep - like:
Code: [Select]

Thanks for the suggestion.

I should be able to make it so that the raw data isn't copied to other files.  I'll test this when I get a chance.
