Lightroom/Camera Raw: Support for Pentax Pixel Shift raw files

I want support for Pentax HDR and Pixel Shift files in Lightroom:HDR needs to be read as it is, multiple exposures in one file so they can be processed as conventional multiexposure HDR in Lightroom.Pixel Shift need to be read as multiple files also. But here Adobe must drop the Bayer filer before merging. A bonus function would be anti ghost as in HDR to overcome artifacts due to moving objects.This should be easy done for the Adobe developers :)Read more at: http://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/14...Best regards, Tor

I know it says that in the description of the update, but I don't see anything about it in the program. Is it automatic? If so it is a little better than Lr 5.7, but I still have to develop my pixel shift shots in the camera software (SilkyPix) first for the clearest picture. Or am I just not seeing the adjustments in Lr/CR?

Compare a pixel-shift image to a non-pixel-shift image of the same subject with otherwise the same camera settings, both developed in Adobe software and see if one is sharper over the other.  The processing is automatic and there's no way to turn it off so it's hard to compare if there is any improvement starting with a single image.

As far as why SilkyPix images might appear "sharper" I can think of a couple reasons:

1)  SilkyPix has different sharpening algorithms or otherwise oversharpens by default which can make the image look sharper when zoomed out, but if you zoom in there are large sharpening halos that look bad--this is typical behavior of in-camera processing and I'd guess SilkyPix is replicating the in-camera algorithms.

2)  The images you have taken do have slight camera or subject motion so appear blurry when all 4 pixel-shift frames are used, which would be what Adobe is always doing, but perhaps the SilkyPix software is smart enough to detect this blur and use only one frame of the 4 to avoid the multi-frame motion blur.

Not of any interest anymore because CS6 is no longer supported. I'm thinking of switchibg to another product outside adobe because of the wórse support of old customers.

I know that my next camera and optics from pentax will not be supported within CS6,
therefore i lost my interest in adobe products.

Adobe supports paying customers.

Do Pentax Pixel Shift files work in the ACR 9.1 installed with PS-CS6 or only PS-CC?

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Pentax Pixel Shift.

As a long time Lightroom user, I would like to suggest/request that Adobe include support for Pentax's pixel shift. Pentax is releasing excellent bodies (with more lenses) that have this feature, yet Lightroom can not exploit the full potential of their products. Please consider including this feature in some future release of Lightroom. Thanks, Guy

Any word from Adobe yet about Pixel Shift? Maybe we should be on the phone with Adobe if you have an account with them. Ill be calling today from my account.

it is a shame, that Adobe after more than one year does not support the Pentax Dynamic Pixel Shift Resolution like for example RAW Therapee does. Adobe if you read this: if you dont support such innovative technics you should not be No.1 in the market!

I don't believe RawTherapee 5.4 supports dynamic pixel shift either. Do you have some more recent info about this? See here for a discussion of that: https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/32-digital-processing-software-printing/311176-squirrel-mafias-r...

Indeed, it's unclear that shooting DNG dynamic pixel shift even results in a file that Pentax's own Digital Camera Utility can process. There seem to be no options for that.
