This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Camera Raw/Lightroom: Fuji X-Trans Support?

Does Adobe thinks to improve the demosaicing method for Fujifilm X-Trans sensor in future? I'm sure they notice the thousands and thousands complains and I understand that the current demosaicing save the image from a different artifacts so I'm just asking is Adobe Staff working on this problem?

I found out that the last version of the raw support resolve the issue with the maze pattern due the green channels equilibration on Olympus which I'm grateful, but I hope it would not take that long to fix (if ever do) the problems with the Fujifilm X-Trans sensor.

In directly answer to your question, Adobe doesn't tell us when they're working on something.

Adobe did drastically improve Fuji X-Trans support about a year ago, I think, so many of those complains are from before that.

Are you calling attention to something specific or are wanting to buy an X-Trans camera and want to know if Adobe will improve things soon or not as part of your buying decision? The X-Trans sensor has a different color layout compared to almost all other camera sensors, and Adobe's processing is optimized for those other sensors.

I would guess somewhere at Adobe there is at least one person who occasionally thinks about what could be done to handle X-Trans pixel layout better than now, but I don't know how high a priority it would be.

I own already X-Trans sensor camera, but I'm using different software to work with the files, since Adobe's rendering occur strange patterns (around the contrast areas) and makes the fine details smudged. The complains are all there with every upgrade, but many Fujifilm users found the working solution in other programs.

No, it's still a current issue:
