Preview pane empty for RAW files??
« on: June 13, 2018, 05:47:02 AM »
I am not using ExifToolGUI on a daily basis, but at times I do and appreciate how useful it is. Lately the preview pane is empty; I could swear that it was not always like this. I'm dealing with ORF (Olympus RAW), but I can't see a preview for eg CR2 as well. Only for JPG and TIF the preview pane shows an image.

Is this a problem, or am I just wrong and preview pane doesn't work for RAW files?

I'm running Windows 10 build 17134 and the latest versions of ExifToolGUI and Exiftool.

Thanks
Karsten

I was able to solve the issue by reinstalling the FastPictureViewer codecs that I use to display RAW thumbnails throughout Windows. My Windows was recently upgraded to Spring Creator 1803, maybe during this operation codecs were disabled / overwritten by others that are not capable to display ORF.
