    Is there a way to apply one the E-M5's scene modes to an ORF file (using either Olympus Viewer 3 or 2)? I know that you can apply an art filter after the image was shot - but can you do a similar thing with a scene mode (specifically the "sunset" scene mode).

    If so, I'd appreciate hearing exactly how it can be done.

    I played around with scene modes briefly and from what I observed you won't be able to replicate them all fully after the fact, even if you've got raw files.

    The scene modes can set various settings that can be duplicated in PP with raw, but among other things they also set the aperture and sometimes shutter speed, which cannot be changed after the exposure has already been taken.

    That said, the other settings for 'sunset' might be easier to replicate. Just take a random photo using the scene mode, open up the raw, and see what settings were used. Then apply those same settings to your desired shot and see what happens.
