    Anyone know if the Olympus EM1 firmware update modified the RAW format,?
    My fav raw processing app, AfterShotPro 2, no longer seems to recognize the .orf formats from my EM1 following the firmware update. Older files from same camera are working fine.

    Is it possible that aftershot looks at the firmware version and it does not recognize 3.0? As far as I know, the RAW format shouldn't have been modified in any way.

    There could be some EXIF detail changes on the new firmware versions. Will check that...

    good luck getting corel to update that in less than a year. I left Aftershot in 2014 and have no regrets. Using Darktable now and it is far superior with regular updates and feature enhancements that work.

    Capture One Pro 8 is a good option too.

    I was a big Bibble 5 user and carried on when it became AfterShotPro for a little while - until the lack of new camera support pushed me to Lightroom. I'm glad I did. Going back to ASP now is like stepping back in time. Do yourself a favour and just switch to LR!

    If buying, then I suggest looking at the options before paying out the money & here is a video comparing LR & Capture One.

    Well my issue was resolved entirely by clearing out a Corel Cache folder in my Users/AppData/Local area.

    Something must have got whacked that affected all newer images being accessed.
    I'm good to go!
